Questions & Answers

FUHR MultiSafe multi-point door locks are renowned for their ease of use, reliability and durability. Profile specific keeps ensure secure fastening to the outer frame.

Lever/Lever action is a very simple means of operating a door lock – when the door is unlocked by the cylinder, depress the lever to release all locking points. On closing, lift the lever to engage the main locking points then turn the key in the profile cylinder to throw the central deadbolt and to deadlock all other locking points.

Where security is a greater concern on main residential doors, the Secured by Design accredited FUHR 856 Type 3, with 2 hook bolts and two roller cams is recommended. The hooks engage in pressed steel locking keeps – profile related to fit the profile securely, without packers. The Type 3 door lock has also achieved a half hour fire rating on a tested door set.

A Eurogroove is the groove in the profile in which multipoint locks and espagnolettes are fitted. This is always 16mm for PVC, but can be 20mm in Timber.


What is PAS 24?

  • Manual intervention
  • Mechanical loading
  • Hard and soft body impact

How do I adjust FUHR keeps/strikers?

Hook and Keep alignment:

The hook and keep should be aligned using the guideline on the hook plate. Ensure the hook engages correctly avoiding friction on which can result in damage to the hook, there should be a 2mm gap between the line on the hook plate and the flat of the hook as shown in the diagram.


Latch and hook adjustment:

Take care not to over adjust the hook keep as this can damage the keep - do not rotate through 360º.
A screwdriver and a 4mm allen key will be required when adjusting these plates.


Roller and mushroom adjustment:

Adjust eccentric compression of roller and mushroom keeps to ensure the optimum compression for the door.
Adjust the compression using a 4mm allen key.
