Oval Cylinder Locks
Oval Cylinder Locks have an oval shape and are used in conjunction with an oval mortice lock case. The cylinder fits through your door, passing through the lock case which is mortised into the edge of the door. When using door handles with these types of locks and cylinders, you must ensure that they too have the oval cut out on the back plate to allow the cylinder to pass through.
Oval Cylinder Locks can be utilised as a Master Key System where one key will open all locks in the suite, whilst other keys will only operate certain locks. Alternatively you can have it set up to be keyed-alike, where you have a number of oval cylinder locks all working off the same key. There's also a range of options in terms of the length of the cylinder, whether one side has a thumb turn on it, or you can even opt for a half cylinder, where the lock is only operated from one side. With our range of High Security Oval Cylinders you can also rest assured that no one can get a key cut without your authorisation, as our patent protected system is only available from us!
