The Entry Time Test
I conducted a comprehensive test of a large variety cylinders installed in reinforced doors such as Superlock, Rav Zro'ot, Mul-T-Lock, Reshafim and other doors installed in homes and offices across Israel.
Professional locksmiths can open doors quickly, with minimal damage. We tested several drills recognized by professional locksmiths as ideal for entry services and measured their drill times as well as how long it took for the cylinder to open. Until now, we used the drills listed in the table, but results unquestionably show that Alpen's new drill bits reduce entry time, drilling faster into even thick rosettes installed before the cylinders in reinforced doors that are not easily broken with a screwdriver. The results are listed below.
The cylinders tested are:
Magnum, with dimple key
Yardeni dimple key
Linca dimple key
Mul-T-Lock Superlock Profile 08
Mul-T-Lock Interactive cylinder
Mul-T-Lock super cylinder
At the end of the day, our findings showed that Austrian-manufactured Alpen drills and drill bits performed the best and were the quickest on the job.
Drilling was performed on vises, with particularly high quality drill.
When entering a customer's home, you should include the time required to remove the rosette as part of the overall time.
