Pilaster mounted cubicle lock manufactured of robust SAA (satin anodised aluminium). A very simple yet stylish and timeless design. The cubicle lock has no sliding parts and so no keep is required to secure the toilet cubicle door closed.
The pilaster mounted toilet cubicle lock includes an indicator bolt. A quick glance is all that is needed to show other users of the washroom the status of the toilet cubicle. Red for engaged and white for vacant.
The indicator for the bolt also allows for emergency access. The center pin can be turned by a flat head screwdriver, coin or similar tool. Turning it from the outside will rotate the lock handle within the toilet cubicle so staff can gain access in event of an emergency.
Versatility of the Pilaster Mounted Cubicle Lock
Mounting the toilet cubicle lock on the pilaster allows it to work with normal inward opening toilet cubicles. Mounting the toilet cubicle lock on the door allows it to work with outward opening cubicle doors. Meaning if your business has a mixture of inward and outward opening doors you only need one single replacement lock on the shelf.
There are also versions of the pilaster mounted cubicle lock for 13mm panel thicknesses and 18-21mm panels. There fore the lock will suit most MFC, HPL and SGL toilet cubicle panels.
Fitting Pilaster Mounted Toilet Cubicle Locks
Only 3 holes need to be drilled in the panel or the door the lock is being fitted to. As the handle is the locking bolt and no keep is required, then no holes need to be drilled into the securing panel.
Two holes are for securing the lock to the door which it does by sandwiching the panel. The third hole is simply for the indicator bolt to pass through to allow the rotation of the handle (to lock/unlock the cubicle door) to also change the indicator signal.
The turning bolt also has a black plastic buffer upon so as to reduce damage to toilet cubicle panels if the door is swung open violently.
The universal fit, replacement toilet cubicle lock and cover plate is suitable for many different toilet cubicle doors. It is not suitable for glass toilet cubicles where new holes cannot be drilled.
Designed for use with laminate toilet cubicle panels such as SGL, HPL and MFC. The cover plate covers and blanks off the drilled holes for previously fitted cubicle locks. Allowing this replacement toilet cubicle lock to be fitted over previously drilled doors. Especially when the existing holes locations may not match up. Ideal for sites where the installed locks may now be NLA.
Extremely robust and strong despite its aluminium construction. This versatile replacement toilet cubicle lock completely hides any holes left in your toilet door once the existing lock is removed.
Included with the Replacement Toilet Cubicle Lock
Two cover plates are provided with each lock, for the front and the back of the cubicle door. The cover plates also act as strong and rigid bases on which the lock and face plate are mounted. Often providing more resistance to deliberate vandalism than the previously fitted cubicle lock.
The replacement toilet cubicle lock is packaged with a standard box keep and a bridge keep. Making the cubicle lock compatible with either inward or outward opening toilet cubicle doors, and flush fitting systems.
The lock can be used on doors with varying board thicknesses. From a minimum of 13mm up to 28mm. Please bare in mind however the smaller the thickness of the door the less snug the lock bar against the keep. Trimming down of the pins may be necessary when fitting.
The PK717 universal replacement toilet cubicle lock also features a discreet emergency unlocking mechanism within the indicator. Allowing the lock to be disengaged from outside of the toilet cubicle in the case of emergency.
