Hardware supplier, Kenrick, has strengthened its range of Excalibur locking systems with the addition of a split spindled door lock. According to Kenrick, this development brings greater flexibility to the fabricator, enabling them to ‘easily and cost effectively’ create either a lever/lever or a lever/pad application from just one lock.
,At the heart of the Kenrick system is a standard 92mm centre, which accommodates both long and short back plate handles and either a solid spindle to create a lever/lever lock or a split spindle to create a lever/pad lock. According to Kenrick, this is a versatile alternative to traditional twin spindle locks which need to use a longer back plate regardless of the operation of the lock.
,Like the rest of the Excalibur range, the Excalibur split spindle door lock is also said to offer ‘exceptional levels of security’ for the homeowner. Benefitting from three hooks, two steel anti-lift bolts and three rollers, it is designed to provide both ‘peace of mind’ and smooth operation.
,Steve Williams, sales and marketing director at Kenrick, said: “We are delighted to unveil the latest addition to the Excalibur family of high specification products. Created to provide the fabricator a high degree of flexibility, the Excalibur split spindle door lock is quick and easy to fabricate and offers guaranteed performance. And cleverly, if the operation of the door set needs to be adapted after fabrication, it is simple to swap the handles and spindles on-site without having to change the lock or re-route the door sash. Providing top class security features, convenience and performance, this product really delivers and we’re confident that it will be extremely popular within the market.”
,Like all Excalibur door locks, the Excalibur split spindle door lock is extendable to provide greater flexibility for the fabricator. In addition, the gearbox is sprung on both spindles, which eliminates the need to buy more costly sprung handle sets. To further enhance fabricator choice, a one-piece keep, individual hook roller and centre hook latch and roller keeps are also available.
