Locks

  • RH / Right Hand lock is fixed to the left side of a right hand hung door.
  • LH / Left Hand lock is fixed to the right side of a left hand hung door.
  • KA, Keyed alike or Pass locks mean that the locks are supplied with the same key numbers  e.g. If you order 10 Keyed Alike locks then all of the locks will have the same key number and the same key.
  • Differ locks means that the locks are supplied with different key numbers  e.g. If you order 10 Differ locks then all of the locks will be supplied with different key number and different keys.
  • MK / Mastered locks means that there is a Master Key available for the specific locks which will open any lock in its related key range.
  • N/MK / Non-mastered locks simply means that there is no Master Key available
  • Removeable Cylinders means that the lock cylinder can be taken out and replaced with another cylinder by the same manufacturer.  The lock cylinders are supplied seperately from the lock housings.
  • Key Retention means that when the lock is in the open position the key cannot be removed
  • Suited locks are sets of locks with the same key number, where each set has a different key number  e.g. You might order three of the same locks with key number 7601TA, two locks with key number 7602TA and five locks with key number 7603TA.  Each set of suited locks, if Mastered, could then be opened by one Master Key or just the key relating to the lock e.g. 7601TA.  Imagine an office with three rooms, where each room has the sames locks on the furniture, but with a different key number for each room.  If you have the Master Key then you can open all of the locks but if you only have key number 7601TA then you can only open the three locks in your room.  This is an excellent way of providing added security and access control.
  • Key Cutting is available for Siso, Lehmann, Huwil and many other furniture lock brands.

 

Hinges

  • The correct door overlay is achieved by selecting the hinge with the correct cranking:

Hinge Overlays

  • Overlay hinges are fitted to doors where the door lays onto the frame of the carcass.
  • Full Overlay hinges overlay the width of the carcass side.
  • Half Overlay hinges overlay up to half the width of the carcass side.
  • Inset hinges allow the door to close within the frame of the carcass.
  • Slide On / Screw On hinges require a screw to secure the hinge arm to the hinge plate.
  • Clip On hinges click into place when locating the hinge arm onto the hinge plate.
  • 26mm or 35mm Cup relates to the diameter of the hole required to fit the hinge into the door.  The cup is the part of the hinge that is recessed into the door.

Drawer Slides / Runners

  • Single Extension drawer slides extend approximately 3/4 of the length of the closed drawer slide.  Therefore if the drawer slide is 300mm long when closed, the extension will be approximately 225mm when opened.  This provides an overall opened length of approximately 525mm.
  • Full Extension drawer slides extend the full length of the closed drawer slide.  Therefore if the drawer slide is 300mm long when closed, the extension will be 300mm when opened.  This provides an overall opened length of 600mm.
  • Over Extension drawer slides extend the full length of the closed drawer slide plus 25mm.  Therefore if the drawer slide is 300mm long when closed, the extension will be 325mm when opened.  This provides an overall opened length of 625mm.
  • Side Fix drawer slides are fitted to the sides on the drawer.
  • Bottom Fix drawer slides are fitted to the bottom of the drawer.
