Available from ASSA ABLOY , the Lockwood manufactured modular cylinder extensions have been developed specifically for Australian oval type cylinders.
Extended cylinders are typically necessary for doors that are 50mm or thicker, or for applications where the mortice lock is mounted off centre in the door. They provide onsite flexibility that helps to save time and reduce costs in applications where extended cylinders are needed.
A modular cylinder extension will raise the face of the cylinder from the door and escutcheon, enabling the use of the key. It can also be used to create practically any length of cylinder by stacking the extension pieces.
The cam required for the special lock function is attached to the end of the extended cylinder, which is then ready for installation.
Extended barrels and housings will no longer need to be ordered thanks to these modular cylinder extensions as they simply screw into the back of a special standard length 570 oval type cylinder.
Additionally, Locksmiths or Distributors are able to adapt instantly to the length of cylinder required thanks to the standard length barrel, regardless of barrel profile.
