This model is a part of the Kenrick Centurion range of replacement UPVC window lock gearboxes that should be stamped with the Kenrick and Centurion labels on the cover plates and part of the ridged bar. These models come in either a 20mm or 22mm backset; they can be indentified again by markings, either CLS22 or CLS20 where the last two digits refer to the backset size in mm. The Kenrick Centurion UPVC Window lock gearbox comes with a standard 42mm fixing centre position, that also take a 7mm spindle in the follow, which is the industry standard for locking and non locking UPVC window handles.
Kenrick produce and manufacture a wide range of replacement UPVC window gearboxes that are used in window locking systems.
Gearboxes usually are one of the first parts of this model to fail, this is due to it having to deal with the mechanical load of the whole system, inside a relatively small gearbox.
Hi, guys. My name's Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. Today we're talking about gearboxes that are designed for UPVC windows. It's normally the gearboxes if your window lock is to fail in any way, normally nine times out of ten what actually does fail is the actual gearbox inside. It's the part that actually gets connected to the actual handle itself and these are the typical type of handle.
But the particular gearbox that we're going to be talking about today, it's the Kenrick Centurion range of gearboxes that are now available on our website. So here's the actual gearbox here, it comes in two different separate pieces, this is the actual cover plate that comes off as normal and you see here that you've got these little ridges, and these little ridges are where you would have the bars that shoot out from either side to actually lock the window into place.
Now these are available under special order, and should you need these bars, by all means give us a call, pop us over an e-mail and we can get you a quote on the bars, no problem at all. That's not a problem. But 90% of the time it's the gearboxes that fail, and therefore then these are what are readily available.
Now the Centurion range from Kenrick is available in two different sizes. They're available in 22 millimetres and this is the 22 millimetres backset version, and one of the distinctive markings actually says "CLS22". I don't know if you can actually zoom in there close enough. I'll probably move it. Yeah, you can just about see it there in the light no problem at all. And of course, the other one then is 20 millimetres, and that there has "CLS20". I don't know if you can actually zoom in on that one as well and get at the angle there just about right there - see that's got "CLS20".
So, if you take it out it says Centurion on the front here, so as soon as you actually open it up and you have a look it'll say Centurion on there so that's your first marker, and then your second marker, just see which one you want, has got "CLS20" or "CLS22". Now, the standard centres for the screw fixtures here is 42 millimetres, it's pretty standard in the industry these days, and the size of the follower [SP] there is 7 millimetres, again, pretty universal these days, and of course, your handle will fit in here no problem at all like that and screw in to place there through the fixings.
So there you go, guys. This is the Kenrick Centurion range of gearboxes. They're available on our website now, and if you need a little bit more information or you're not 100% sure, listen, pop us over an e-mail, use our live chat on our website or pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and to be honest with you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer. That would be really good for us. So from me Darrel, and all of us here at the sales team, thank you very much. Kenrick Centurion, take care now. Bye-bye.
