Locking security gets tough with Camlock
News Release from:
Camlock Systems Ltd
The new Series 31 lock from Camlock Systems is designed to provide OEMs with excellent value and a good level of security protection for lockers, cabinets, storage boxes, mail boxes, drugs cabinets, deed boxes, chemical storage cabinets, tool cabinets and many other applications.
The lock, which is a 10 disc double entry camlock, provides good key security by using a large number of key combinations — 2,000 as standard and up to 10,000 to special order. It provides designers, engineers, specifiers and buyers with the latest in lock design at a very competitive price.
Camlock Systems has designed the lock and used its expertise in security software to provide key combinations that are ‘safe’ and reduce the incidence of ‘key crossover’ — when one key can operate two or more locks with different key combinations.
To suit a wide range of applications, the Series 31 lock is available in three configurations: keyed to differ, master keyed and keyed alike. Master key codes are allocated exclusively and can be registered under an ‘authorized signatory’ system with the manufacturer, drastically reducing the possibility of keys being obtained by deceit.
The lock incorporates a positive-click index locking/unlocking action that prevents the locking cam from falling back under its own weight if keys are left in the lock. Body length is a compact 20mm. A choice of key movements is available: 90° turn clockwise or anti-clockwise with key free in the locked position only, or 180° turn clockwise or anti-clockwise with key free when locked and unlocked. The first of these key movements traps the key when the lock is unlocked, requiring users to lock the locker or cabinet before leaving, and reducing the chance of the keys being lost.
The Series 31 is attractively finished in a smart bright chrome plate and offers excellent durability. The keys are particularly strong to stand up to heavy usage, and for users’ convenience, the lock face and keys carry the key identification number.
The lock is available with a choice of fixing methods, either a ¾ inch brass body nut or a sprung horseshoe clip for fast fitting. A wide range of 2.5mm thick x 16mm wide zinc plated steel cams for use with the lock are available from stock, with special cams available to order.
Whatever the application, the Series 31 lock from Camlock Systems combines security, versatility, easy fitting and a very competitive price in one package.
