This article answers all the “whats” regarding the Medeco³ Rim & Mortise line.
What Is a Rim Cylinder?
Rim cylinders couple with auxiliary rim lock systems like night latches, “jimmy-proof” vertical deadbolt locks, surface-mounted deadbolts, and panic devices. The rim cylinders Medeco³ manufactures are on UL’s 437 List for locks that resist attacks from picks and drills.
This brand of rim cylinder is available in a range of constructions to fit a variety of mechanical and electronic lock systems.
What Is a Mortise Cylinder?
When you have a door designed with a “cut-out” or recessed space for a locking system, that space is called a “mortise”. Medeco³ Mortise cylinders come in an array of durable construction options to work with many electronic locking systems as well as mechanical systems.
These mortise cylinders work with Medeco³ mortise lock cases and many other makers’ lock cases.
What Are the Benefits of Installing Medeco³ Rim & Mortise Cylinders?
Every product made comes with the reality of a lifespan. If you have an auxiliary rim lock system or a mortise lock case that needs a sturdy new lock cylinder, Medeco³ cylinders are a secure fit!
Your lock cylinders need not be old. You can replace cheaper cylinder mechanisms and expect more safety from Medeco³ products. Medeco³ grew out of a Salem, Virginia, company established in the 1950s. Today, the company’s durable lock cylinders are still made in the U.S.A.
Every Medeco³ lock cylinder comes with a two-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects. The keys paired with each lock cylinder feature angled cuts as well as fore and aft notch positioning that allow this manufacturer one of the largest available master key systems. This means more peace-of-mind for any person with something to protect. Large master key systems make it very hard for someone else to “just happen” to have the key that fits your new lock cylinder.
Once you have switched your cylinders to Medeco³, you can count on these products to last many years. Each cylinder’s interior features solid brass construction that resists the efforts of the elements and more nefarious foes.
