10. Closing Pins
11. Anti-drill Pin
The EuroArt range of euro profile cylinders is made up of three main categories or levels
6 Pin economy cylinders
6 Pin high-security cylinders with 4 anti-drill pins.
6 pin high-security with dimple keys.
10 Pin high-security with two line pins. This is the flagship of EuroArt cylinder range offering the advance V-Shaped flat key profile section, and doubling the pins where high security is essential.
One category is identified.
For use by people with a high incentive to exercise care and with a small chance of misuse.
Three grades are identified according to the number of test cycles achieved
25 000 Cycles
50 000 Cycles
One grade is identified:
Two grades are identified:
Not suitable for fire/smoke resistant door assemblies
Suitable for fire/smoke resistant door assemblies subject to satisfactory assessment of the contribution of the cylinder to the fire resistance of the specified fire/smoke door assemblies. Such assessment is beyond the scope of this European standard (see EN 1634-1)box 4), it must be possible to demonstrate compliance with the Essential Requirements of the Construction Products (Amendments) Regulations.
One grade is identified:
Four grades are identified according to EN 1670:
No corrosion or temperature resistance requirements
BS EN 1670 Grade 3 corrosion resistance (96 hours NSS): no temperature resistance requirements
No corrosion resistance: resistance to -20/+80 C temperature extremes
BS EN 1670 Grade 3 corrision resistance: resistance to -20/+80C temperature extremes
No distinction is made between the inside and the outside of either the cylinder and/or the door. On completion of the test, the cylinder must operate.
Six grades are identified and the principal requirements are summarised in Table 1`below :
Minimum number of effective differs
Minimum number of movable levers, pins, discs etc
Coding on key could disclose combination
Torque resistance of plug
Three grades are identified and the principle requirements are summarised in table 2 below:
Resistance to drilling
|-||3/5 mins||5/10 mins|
Resistance to chisel attack (number of defined blows)
Resistance to twisting attack (number of defined twists)
Resistance to plug/cylinder extraction (pull load)
Torque resistance of plug/cylinder
Cylinders to differ are all operated by individual keys all different to each other.
In keyed alike arrangements all cylinders are operated by the same key. This gives an arrangement where one key will open a group of locks. Not to be confused with a master keyed suite (see below). Cylinders can also be keyed alike to the euro profile, oval and rim cylinders. This is useful where a combination of cylinder mortice lock cases and cylinder rim nightlatches are being used.
Common entrance (or flat entrance) suites are designed to enable a tenant to use the same key for his own private doors as well as doors common to other residents within the same buildings. The common entrance feature can be incorporated within any master key suite.
In Master key suites, a group of cylinders, each equipped with an individual servant key, is also operated by one special key known as the master key. Keyed alike groups can also be incorporated into any master key suite.
Grand master key suites are used when it is necessary to have more than one master key group. These groups are referred to as sub suites. In these instances all cylinders irrespective of their sub-suite, are controlled by one key as the grand master key.
