EVVA offers a wide range of different cylinder types within our range of mechanical locking systems and electronic access control systems.
What are the different types of cylinders?
The double cylinder is the most widely used cylinder. It can be locked and unlocked from both sides with the authorised key. This cylinder is suitable for access management in all buildings, e.g. apartments, private homes and public buildings.
Half cylinders are cylinders that can only be locked or unlocked from the outside. These are used in garages or key cabinets, for example. Cam locks are usually used for letter boxes, lockers, display cases, vending machines or safes, which can also only be locked from the outside. These cylinders open and close with a cam. Thumbturn cylinders can also only be opened from one side (outside), while doors can be opened or closed from the inside with a rotatable thumbturn. The thumbturn cylinder is suitable for house and apartment doors or basement doors.
Rim cylinders are usually installed in rim locks or supplementary locks, which are firmly screwed to the door that is to be secured. The rim lock is connected to the cylinder by a tail bar. There are also a number of special cylinders, such as furniture cylinders, insert cylinders or switch cylinders. The padlock can be used for indoor and outdoor security.
Electronic cylinders are also being used increasingly, such as the motorised cylinder for automatically controlled locking and unlocking of doors.
