Euro Cylinders

UK Police report that the majority of break-ins are via the front door, making it important to ensure that customers fit a good quality, high security cylinder to their door.


Sterling offer a comprehensive range of Euro profile cylinders in a wide choice of sizes, finishes and type (including double, single and thumbturn). Suitable for replacing or upgrading existing locks, the DoorMinder 3 star and 1 star Euro cylinders have been indepently tested to the TS007:2014 standard.


Sterling’s Kitemarked DoorMinder ranges feature anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump protection and are Snap Safe.  3 Star Kitemarked DoorMinder cylinders offer further enhanced security by incorporating an innovative locking cam mechanism, which is automatically engaged when the key is removed. Coming with a 10yr guarantee, both DoorMinder ranges cover all popular sizes from 70mm to 100mm and are available in double cylinder and thumbturn variants.  All Sterling cylinders feature a standard section keyway and are available keyed to differ as standard, with keyed-alike or master key available on request.

How secure are your doors? The facts might surprise you.

• 73% of homes are broken into via the door

• Many doors can be opened with as little as 15 seconds - no special tools required

• Unfortunately the internet is full of videos showing a common weakness of Euro profile cylinders


Doorminder from Sterling features a "snap-safe" design, which is designed to snap if the door is attacked but still maintain the integrity of the lock and keep the door firmly locked. See the Doorminder 3 & 1 Star range for more information.


Upgrading the security of your door is easier than you might think...
