greenteQ Orion Retains Its Integrity

by | Mar 29, 2022 | Hardware

The greenteQ Orion TS007 3 star profile cylinder from hardware specialist VBH is now available in bespoke keyed alike suites.

Until now, keyed alike cylinders were available in factory-produced pairs or batches of 10, but all the cylinders were matching in size and finish.

With the new option to open and re-pin Orion cylinders, customers can now have cylinders of different sizes and finishes, all operated by the same key; perfect in a home with a composite front door, an aluminium bi-fold and a PVCu back door, for example.

Orion keyed alike sets are processed and despatched usually within 3-5 working days.

Dan Powell, head of sales at VBH, who has been heavily involved in the development of Orion said: “We are delighted to advise our existing customers and the market at large that everything is now in place to produce customer-bespoke keyed alike sets.

“Orion has proved incredibly popular with door manufacturers and installers, as well as the locksmith industry, since its launch in 2021. The key alike option will only enhance its appeal.”

Orion cylinders are approved to Kitemark TS007 with a full 3 star rating. They are available in key/key, and key/thumb turn variants.

End users are encouraged to register their new cylinder for the free proteQ10 snap guarantee. proteQ10 will pay the end-user £2000 direct if a break in is achieved due to the cylinder snapping within 10 years of the installation date.

Dan points out, “greenteQ Orion cylinders that have been re-pinned through VBH still retain the integrity of their TS007 Kitemark 3 star classification, which means that we can continue to offer the proteQ10 snap guarantee on these barrels.

“It’s important that fabricators and installers are aware that this is not the case with all cylinders or re-pinning services. In many cases, once a cylinder has been opened, the TS007 Kitemark is void.”
