EVVA MCS Euro Profile Half/Single Cylinder
EVVA's half profile cylinder would be for a single side of a door or for doors with only a one sided lock. Some devices and changeable core padlocks also take half profile cylinders.
EVVA euro profile cylinders are replacement cylinders that fit European locking devices that take profile cylinders. They are also used in some sliding glass doors and devices in North America. We stock virtually of the unique sizes and combination of sizes for these cylinders from 30mm to 60mm. If you need a size we do not carry please contact us for details.
Euro profile cylinders fit many different applications and are designed to meet the Din Standard 18251 for sizing. The only size that generally varies on a euro profile cylinder is the exterior / interior (on non half-euro cylinders) length. Note that when measuring, cylinders are generally a few mm longer than the stated length. A 30mm euro profile cylinder is frequently between 31-33mm long. If you had a double cylinder that measured 75mm long and was equal on both sides this would actually be a 35/35mm cylinder. If you are not sure about your length or have questions please let us know.
For extremely harsh conditions (lots of sand,salt,dirt,etc) EVVA offers an optional heavy duty dust protector to the front of their locks. Note for 99.9% of all applications this is completely unnecessary. EVVA locks are out of the box extremely weather resistant featuring a very low chance of any material actually causing interference in the lock. If you are however in extreme conditions for extended periods of time EVVA offers the dust protector for added protection.
EVVA is one of the top high security manufacturers in the world with several different active high security systems and is based out of Austria. We carry their premium MCS (Magnetic Code System) product line featuring a nearly un-duplicable key and an extremely secure cylinder with both an advanced magnetic and mechanical slider security system. MCS locks are completely bump proof and extremely pick resistant (no known picking attacks have been successful). All EVVA locks and keys are factory assembled which is great for key control and security, but also means most EVVA products may have to come direct from the factory. All MCS locks can be keyed to work with the same set of keys. For more details please see our EVVA Brand Information page.
We normally stock EVVA locks in the default configuration (default number of keys, default finish, keyed different, etc). Other options/keying/numbers of keys may have to come from the factory (contact us as some items are on hand). Factory orders are generally done quarterly, with our next scheduled order in February 2017, due to quantity demands we may place an order before then. If you need something urgently please give us a call and we can let you know availability (and the factory can always do custom runs but they incur additional shipping charges). Factory orders are generally filled within 3-4 weeks of us placing them.
Keyed Alike / Master Keying
EVVA locks are all keyed at the factory. We are able to have your locks keyed alike(to the same key) without issue. We can also master key(see our Master Keying Page) your locks as you desire. Keyed alike means that if you order two padlocks and a deadbolt(for example) from us we can key them all to operate on the same key. To order two or more locks keyed alike, just select "keyed alike" under keying and all locks in the order will be keyed the same. It is important to note that when keying alike you do not get more keys for each lock you order, just the initial lock's number of keys. This means no matter if you order 2 or 5 padlocks keyed alike, you will only get 2 keys total. If you require additional keys just order extra keys. Master keying can allow you to allow some keys to open some locks and other keys to open all locks. You can specify your desired master keying in the notes area when checking out, or you can simply put a note in to call, and we will call you to discuss your needs. If you require any special keying options or are unsure on the keying just put "please call" or enter additional details in the notes box during checkout and we are happy to help. If you are looking to have locks or keys to a previous order please see our keying page.
EVVA Keys can come with colored circles on them or plastic key heads. These items are not possible to add after the fact and must be done at the factory. To order either colored circles or key heads on the keys please see our EVVA MCS cut key page. Any keys ordered with your initial order will be at the discounted key price (adjusted after you submit the order. EVVA keys can also come with electronic inserts for RFID, Prox, or HID applications. Please contact us for more details.
Please note when ordering extra keys you are ordering extra keys per lock. This means if you select 3 extra keys and then order a quantity of 2 locks you will get 6 extra keys. To order the correct number of extra keys you can divide the number of extra keys by however many locks you are ordering and put that under extra keys. The other option for extra keys is to add a quantity of 1 of the item you are ordering to your cart with the correct number of extra keys, and then go back and add however many more of the lock you want with 0 extra keys. It will mean you have to pick the options for the product twice, but will ensure you get exactly how many keys you want.
Euro profile cylinders are used in a wide variety of applications. These instructions are meant for standard doors that take euro profile cylinders, and not padlocks or other euro profile devices. First you must remove the existing euro profile cylinder from the door, there is a long screw from the side of the door that goes through the euro profile cylinder that must be removed to allow removal of the cylinder. The key may need to be inserted so that the cam in the middle of the cylinder is perpendicular for successful removal. Once the old cylinder is removed the new cylinder can be inserted (again the key needs to be used to ensure the cam is perpendicular to install the cylinder). Once inserted the new cylinder can be screwed into place.
