Adams RITE Consolidates Cylinder Platform


Creating a comprehensive cylinder offering, Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, has introduced a new 5pin version to its cylinder range.

Joining its Kitemarked 6pin variant, the new 5pin cylinder helps to create a good, better, best offering for Adams Rite’s customers, enabling them to service a wider range of specifications.

The new 5pin cylinder is tested to the requirements of EN1303 providing a cost effective solution for applications where the durability and reliability associated with Adams Rite is crucial. Easy to fit to doorsets, the new cylinder is expected to be popular with OEMs working on projects with large quantities of doors where functionality and affordability are important. 

Andy Stolworthy, Product Manager for Adams Rite, said: “Adams Rite has always been at the forefront of product testing and design, but in addition to our advanced Kitemarked and high security 6pin varieties it is also important to ensure our customers can benefit from Adams Rite quality across a broad spectrum of products suitable for a variety of projects. 

“The 5pin cylinder is a robust product but at an attractive price point and is therefore suitable for large-scale applications. Essentially, it fills not only a gap in the market, where performance is important but additional factors such as installation, cost and timescales are crucial too, it also completes the Adams Rite cylinder offering.”
