The european cylinder lock is a barrel lock, which is mainly used for uPVC doors in most parts of Europe. Suitable for commercial and household properties, Euro gas cylinders are very easy to install and install. As long as the correct size lock is selected, almost no tools are required. The strength of safety is indicated by the kite mark and star rating system. There are many different sizes and types to choose from. There are 3 featues of the euro cylinder:
Cam and the center screw
Different configurations introduce.
The euro profile cylinder has different configurations. You can operate the key on both sides or on one side. There is a convenient thumb to turn on the inside, which can realize fast and convenient keyless operation. They are also available in “half” or “single” cylinders. These cylinders are designed to operate on only one side and are usually operated by a key, but if necessary, we can also make them by turning with the thumb.
European shape introduce.
The european shape is visually recognized by its “bulb” shape, which is often verbally described as the “enlarged keyhole shape.” In terms of its physical shape and proportions, there is only one euro outline, so there is no need to measure its height or width. The only dimensions that change are the length of the cylinder and the position of the moving “cam” and the fastening screw hole somewhere near the middle of the cylinder.
Cam and the center screw introduce.
Usually the cam and the center screw are indeed in the middle, you may have an overall cylinder length of 72 mm, when you measure from each side to the center of the cam or screw hole, you will get 36 mm-happy days, you’re lucky in There is a very “standard” size cylinder! But also often, the cylinder has an offset center, so when you measure it, you may find that you have a European cylinder with a total length of 82 mm, and the dimension from one end of the cam to the middle is 51 mm, and therefore The other side is only 31 mm. Again, this situation is not uncommon, but it does limit the choice of cylinders you can buy.
