In addition to the traditional styles of cylinders it also offers a mortise cylinder. The mortise cylinders have threads on the outside of the shell and are designed to be screwed into other manufacturer’s mortise lock cases. A cam on the back of the cylinder operates the lock mechanism and a set screw holds the mortise cylinder in place.
The medeco3 range are drill and pick resistant, and the those that incorporate the Biaxial® design, offer utility patented key control providing protection against the unauthorised duplication of keys. A special elevating and rotating pin tumbler design, along with false slots on the bottom pins, mushroom top pins and a sidebar mechanism, work together, to provide superior pick resistance. Hardened steel inserts, positioned in critical areas of the cylinder, provide a high degree of drill resistance.
