Pickersgill-Kaye is extremely experienced in the manufacture of rolling stock locking systems, and has been working with them for over 100 years.
The latest addition to its extensive range is a series of locks primarily designed to be fitted to North American manufactured locomotives. This includes locks for exterior cab doors plus locks for the various internal doors which are often fitted to the trains.
With a lock body manufactured from a solid aluminium billet, and internal components manufactured from steel, the locks have been designed to be robust and reliable with a service life of up to 30 years. Exhaustive testing, both cycle and load, has been carried out to verify the design and materials selection is suitable for this impressive lifespan.
As an improvement to locomotive security, the cab exterior door locks can be supplied keyed to an existing key plan, or supplied to a customer specified suite if required. Both the cab exterior doors and internal door locks are easily adapted to accommodate different door constructions and door thicknesses. All locks are available in left-hand and right-hand versions.
