Q: Choosing ironmongery for four final fire exit doors and frames which will experience heavy traffic, and need to be secure (would prefer not to have a panic bar), can you recommend a handle arrangement, perhaps with a thumblock on the inside, that would be suitable for these circumstances?

A: For the arrangement you describe we would suggest using escape sashlocks – these have euro cylinder thumb turn locks (i.e. you can have any kind of high security, master keyed, anti pick, anti bump etc euro profile cylinder) but use a split spindle so from the inside the handle will ALWAYS over-ride the lock and open.  The sets we supply include standard differ cylinders, which you can see on the website clicking the bold link, talk to us about higher security cylinders or masterkeying.

Can the cylinder in an OAD be interchanged?

November 23, 2010 by · Comments Off on Can the cylinder in an OAD be interchanged? 

The Exidor range includes Outside Access Devices (OAD’s) with interchangeable and non-interchangeable cylinders. All the Exidor OAD units, except for the 298 and 409 units, have interchangeable cylinders. The cylinders in the 302 OAD have to be drilled and tapped from the back, but the 322, 400, 500 and 700 series OAD uses the conventional fixing position.
