There are many different types of Euro cylinder locks. These are usually found in UPVC or composite doors. Euro cylinders vary in size usually between 30mm and 60mm either side of the cam (centre of the lock).
Also variations include Thumb turn locks for ease to exit a door if an emergency. These are required in Multiple occupancy houses. But are not recommended if the lock is easy to access from a close by letter box. To prevent this you can fit a letter box guard to stop easy access.
We also offer a keyed alike service, this allows you to have multiple locks which can all operate from one key allowing you to lose your bunch of keys and have just one for all doors, out buildings and even gates on your property or business premises.
