Carl F Groupco supports timber sector with FUHR slave lock
Carl F Groupco's support for the timber hardware market includes the FUHR 841 slave door lock. The established fittings distributor, which has offered FUHR lines for over 50 years, reports that the product, which is designed specifically for use on timber or timber core composite doors, is proving popular with its customers due to a number of advantageous defining features.
The 841 is a concealed lever operated two part slave lock which operates as a keep into which the Master leaf is locked. The Master lock (also a two part lock) is compatible with the 841 and can be lever operated or split spindle.
This combination provides a Secured by Design solution for timber French doors. Significant design elements include a wider than typical faceplate of 26mm, which provides additional security protection and strength for timber profiles. Additionally, lever operation on the 841 slave lock is integrated into the faceplate to provide fully concealed locking without encroaching on slave door sightlines.
The FUHR 841 complements Carl F Groupco's growing range of door hardware for timber applications, which includes FUHR's existing range of timber master and stable door locks. Other lines catering for timber installations are T-Fold hardware for bi-fold doors, the Crimebeater door lock series and a range of door furniture.
