Product Release: Corbin Russwin CL3100 Series Vandal Resistant Lever Lock

New Haven, Connecticut — Providing the ideal solution for high traffic and vandal prone environments, Corbin Russwin is introducing the patented CL3100 Series Grade 1 lever lock designed to keep hospitals and healthcare facilities secure. The lock’s unique construction features true interlocking between the lock body and latch and provides unparalleled strength and durability.

The CL3100 Series exceeds ANSI/BHMA A156.2 Series 4000 Grade 1 cycle test standards by a factor of 10, for greater than 15 million test cycles. The CL3100 Series withstands over 2 times ANSI/BMHA torque force requirements – over 3,000 in/lbs – on a locked lever.

“A hospital or school is no place to compromise on physical security,” said Leslie Saunders, VP, Product Management ASSA ABLOY Architectural Hardware Group. “We designed the CL3100 to address the need for locks in healthcare and educational environments that are subject to severe abuse. The design and robust construction of the CL3100 series provide the durability and reliability these facilities require.”

The design of the lock also makes it flexible: only two components need to be changed to accommodate any of its 18 functions. This results in reduced inventory parts and ease of maintenance for service personnel. Additionally, cylinder removal is simple for easy change-outs, and the CL3100 Series is available with patented and high security key systems from Corbin Russwin as well as compatible with many competitive key systems.

The CL3100 Series fits standard 161 door preps, making it ideally suited for retrofit applications as well as new installations. It is available in 11 architectural hardware finishes and Microshield® antimicrobial coating as well as multiple ADA lever designs and rose designs to accommodate a wide variety of aesthetic requirements.

 The Corbin Russwin CL3100 lever lock carries a 10-year limited warranty.
