Three-digit combination locks

The Fort range of three-digit combination locks is available from EMKA.

"The products offer security greater than many key systems without the problems caused by lost and broken keys, etc.", says EMKA's Andy Billingham. "Rapid fixing and a variety of tab styles are important features."

Also included in the range are barrels, camlocks, and special locks which make use of the Fort key system and use standard United Kingdom mounting hole dimensions - 16.6mm x 19.1mm. Many variants of barrel length, cam types, and key rotation (quarter-turn or half-turn) are offered as well as key removal options in four different modes that allow a key to be retained or removed in the open or unlocked position.

Cylinders can be mounted with a back nut or by means of a spring slide clip. Lock barrels sealed against adverse weather conditions can be specified. The full Fort programme also includes hand knob latches and recessed cabinet handles.

EMKA will be exhibiting at the Fastening & Assembly Solutions Show, National Motorcycle Museum, 23 October
