UNION Cylinders

ASSA ABLOY offers a wide range of cylinder systems that provide patent protected key control to prevent the unauthorised duplication of keys. Each high quality system offers the flexibility to provide a solution for applications of all sizes; from small commercial premises with just a few users right through to large utilities requiring complex master key systems with many hundreds of users nationwide.

UNION offers a variety of traditional cylinders to meet the demands of every application. Cylinders are available in four different variations.

  • Rim Cylinders
  • Euro Profile Cylinders
  • Oval Profile Cylinders
  • Circular Threaded

A traditional cylinder operates on a row of lateral pins. When the right key is inserted into the keyway, it will lift all the pins to the correct height so that the plug can rotate and the lock can be opened.

Mechanical cylinders are supplied 5 pin as standard, or six pin on complex master keyed systems, security cylinders and special orders.

A standard 5 pin mechanical cylinder can have over 4,500 key combinations which is ideal for most domestic and commercial applications. When a higher level of security is required, a six pin cylinder, which has over 40,000 key combinations should be specified.
