Euro and Oval Cylinders Locks are fitted to doors such as UPVC doors in domestic environments and office doors in commercial environments. Euro refers to the Euro Shaped profile of the hole that the Locks fits into whereas Oval as the name suggests has an Oval shaped profile.
Euro and Oval locking cylinders are key operated and when the key is turned to the locked position it engages a cam mechanism that locks the door
There are different types of cylinders for different applications:
Double Cylinders have a lock on both sides of the door.
Single Cylinderssometimes referred to as half cylinders have a lock on one side only.
key and turn cylinders have a lock on one side of the door and a handle or knob on the other side.
They are very easy to fit or replace as they just have one fixing screw located on the inside frame of the door. To change the Locks you need to remove the fixing screw and using an existing key rotate the fixing cam until it is aligned with the cylinders and then it is just a question of pulling the lock through the hole.
The Locks all have the same Euro and Oval profile and the important dimensions when ordering is the length of the two halves of the cylinders when measured from the centre fixing hole.
The Locks normally come with two keys which are engraved with a unique number. If you require extra keys, we can cut them according to that number and as they are cut on specialist electronic machines, they are effectively as accurate as an original key. This means you get perfect keys every time as apposed to keys copied on manual machines.
