Lockwood Modular Cylinder Extensions
ASSA ABLOY Australia is pleased to announce the release of a revolutionary range of Modular Cylinder Extensions to suit Australian Oval Type Cylinders.
The modular cylinder extensions provide a simple and effective method of producing an extended cylinder. The onsite flexibility of this solution will save both time and money in all applications where extended cylinders are required. This solution will also reduce the complexity and extended lead times that are currently experienced with the traditional extended cylinder.
As of 1 June 2011, ASSA ABLOY will cease to manufacture extended oval cylinders in all keying platforms and instead will supply modular cylinder extensions.
The benefit of this new product range to customers is that extended barrels and housings no longer need to be ordered. The Modular Cylinder Extensions simply screw onto the back of a special standard length 570 oval type cylinder. The barrel is also a standard length, allowing for the Locksmith or Distributor to adapt instantly to the length of cylinder required for a particular door thickness irrespective of the barrel profile.
