Lock family extended
Carl F Groupco has expanded its range of door locks with the addition of the Excalibur split spindle door lock from Kenrick.
John Crittenden, managing director of Carl F Groupco, said: “We’ve worked with Kenrick for many years and there is a great synergy between the two companies. Kenrick supplies a solid range of products, which are backed by great technical support so we had great confidence in adding the Excalibur split spindle door lock to our range. It delivers speed, simplicity and versatility to fabricators, enabling them to quickly and cost effectively fabricate either a lever/lever or a lever/pad system from just one lock.”
Kenrick developed the Excalibur split spindle door lock as an alternative to traditional twin spindle locks which need a longer back plate for all types of operation. The door lock incorporates 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.
The Excalibur split spindle door lock is easily extendable and cost effective thanks to its sprung gearbox which eliminates the need for costly sprung handle sets. A wide choice of components, including a one piece keep, individual hook roller and centre hook latch, and roller keeps, is also available.
The operation of the door set can easily be adapted, even after installation, by simply changing the handles and spindles without having to change the lock or re-route the door sash.
