Door cylinders are an integral part of your door-locking mechanism.
Cylinder locks (otherwise known as barrels or anti-snap locks) have an internal mechanism that functions on a set of different length pins that align to the correct position when a key is turned to unlock the door.
These locks are easy to install and can easily be re-keyed without the hassle of removing the entire lock. And here at LockShop Direct, we are proud to supply a selection of the best fire rated cylinders.
What are the benefits of fire rated cylinders and barrels?
Cylinder locks are commonly used to protect front and back entranceways, helping to control the movement and access of authorised personnel and resist attack.
Fire rated cylinders are made from fire-resistant materials – meaning they not only resist bumping, snapping, drilling and picking, but they’re also suitable for use on fire doors.
Within our collection of fire rated cylinder locks and barrels, you’ll discover a selection of locking styles – ranging from locks that can be turned with the twist of a knob to heavy-duty options that help to increase the security of your building.
Euro cylinder locks are barrel-shaped and can be used on wooden, composite and uPVC doors with euro-shaped cylinder cases.
Fire rated single cylinder locks (or half-euro cylinders) are accessed with a key from one side only – making them perfect for applications where only external locking and unlocking are required.
Double cylinders (full euro cylinder locks) operate from both sides with a key.
Both types of cylinder are EN 1303 tested and FD60 fire rated to give you peace of mind that they will withstand heat and prevent the spread of fire.
Thumbturn fire rated cylinder locks are another great option if you want to be able to unlock your door from the inside without using a key. Ideal for fire exits where you need to escape quickly and safely.
