Euro Profile Cylinders, also known as DIN cylinders, are commonly used and form a crucial part of many other lock types. They can be used on both uPVC and timber doors. Changing the cylinder can be replaced easily and it is an easy way to ‘change the locks.’
There are three types of Euro Cylinders:
- Single Cylinder – Key access on one side of the cylinder
- Double Cylinder – Key access on both sides of the cylinder
- Single Cylinder with Thumbturn – Locking cylinder on one side of the lock and a thumbturn on the other side.
When using Euro Cylinders on your home or any other property, it is important to check with your insurer if these are accepted since some variations of Euro cylinders are vulnerable to snapping, a technique or breaking the lock.
