Automatic FUHR Lock is High Flyer for Carl F Groupco

Carl F Groupco and FUHR


Hardware distributor Carl F Groupco’s collaboration with German lock manufacturer FUHR dates back to 1962 and FUHR products consistently feature in the company’s best seller list. With a 13% increase in sales in the trading year 2018-2019, a current top performer is the FUHR multisafe 833 automatic door lock. 

Described by lock supply specialists Carl F Groupco as a reliable multipoint device, the 833 offers automatic locking functionality to protect from unauthorised access from the moment the door is closed. The lock also helps prevent warping, particularly for composite doors, by locking all points to hold the door in place every time the door closes, as opposed to relying on the home owner to lift a lever.

Ideally designed for easy, secure operation, the door automatically locks on closing and is easily unlocked from inside the property by using a lever handle. On closing the door, latches become solid deadbolts throwing 20mm into the frame to provide security against forced entry. Additionally, a simple key turn secures the interior lever and main door bolt making the lock ‘child proof ’. The door lock has achieved PAS 24 and is Secured by Design accredited.

Carl F Groupco advises that the range of features offered by the FUHR multisafe 833 make the product an attractive and compelling choice of lock as ease of use and security are combined for aluminium, composite, PVCu or timber entrance doors of residential or public buildings. 

The full range of FUHR hardware for doors and windows is available from Carl F Groupco – this includes multipoint locking systems for single and French doors including mechanical, motorised and automatic locking mechanisms, panic or emergency exit door locks, stable door hardware and tilt & turn window gearing.
