Zinc Alloy is the most fundamental material for the Wixroyd product range. Housings, inserts, handles, spacers, keys, hinges etc, are all die cast products. The zinc used is a zinc alloy with the following contents (except zinc): Al 4,03% Cu 0,83% as well as minor contents of Mg, Fe, Pb, Cd, Sn and Ni.
Plastic - Polyamide
Many of our products are made of injection moulded plastic, normally polyamide. When needed, we add fibreglass to the material, in order to optimise qualities of the product. Examples of products made out of polyamide: handles, housings, rod guides etc.

When selecting a Wixroyd Cam Latch for your application, you need to answer these questions:
1. Which installation cut out?
2. Which body style?
3. Which locking key?
4. Which accessories?
5. Which cam type and size?
All our Flexi-System cam latches use a standard installation cut out 22,2 dia, 20,2 square, for maximum flexibility. We also provide a number of alternative cut out dimensions for legacy/hisorical installations.
Standrad insert driver keys
Our range of insert driver cam latches require a simple key to actuate. Refer to part A0102 and A0103 for correct keys.
Our cam locks with cylinder locks are supplied with two keys per lock. Available as Euro key 5333, keyed alike or keyed to differ locks.
Material and finish
Select from our variety of die cast zinc, polyamide plastic and stainless versions.
Actuation and locking method
Standard insert driver type, cylinder lock or wing handle type
Number of latching points in application
Typically single point latching is ewquired, but the Wixroyd Flexi-System also provides multi-point latching (typically 3 point - at lock point, top and bottom of cabinet).
Wixroyd cams are available in a number of different materials; zinc plated steel, stainless steel (AISI 304) and black plastic.
With or without "Projection"
Different cam bodies require cams either with or without projection
With projection cams prevent turning of the cam over 45°, but is not suited to all cam bodies. For correct projection type please see individual cam body technical pages
Number of Latching Points
Single point cams are suitable where jsut single point latching is required. Multi-point cams are for applications requiring 2 or 3 latching points
This is the most important aspect of the selection process. As we ll as being with or without "projection", cams vary in two key aspects.
Cam off-set (dimension ch)
To ensure your cam fully and correctly engages with the frame of your door the correct cam off-set must be selected. A cam off-set can be either negative (-ve) or positive (+ve).
Cam length (dimension cl)
This impacts the reach of the cam to door frame and hence impacts positioning of cam body for installation. Cam length is measured from the centre of the cam fixing hole to the cam's leading edge. Most typically cams are 45 mm in length.
Use formula to calculate ch (required cam off-set), and refer to the cam selection chart.
ch = h - lh where;
ch = the required cam off-set/height
h = grip length (distance between inside of latch face and front of cam)
lh = body length of cam latch/lock to be used (see example below)
Cam body A1003.AW0010 has been selected for the application. If we refer to the data sheet for this part, suitable cams are parts A0203, A0210 or A0240 - "without projection"
Know application information: h=26 lh = 18
Therefore: ch = 26 - 18 =+8
Cam off set of +8 is required.
Using the data tables for cams A0203, A0210 and A0240 we can select the following cams without projection with an off set of +8; A0203. AW5408 (steel), A0210.AW0428 (stainless) or A0240.AW0108 (three point cam).
Cam body A1003.AW0010 has been selected for the application. If we refer to the data sheet for this part, suitable cams are parts A0203, A0210 or A0240 - "without projection".
Know applicaion information: h = 14 lh = 18
Therefore: ch = 14 - 18 = -4
The required cam off set is negative, -4 as the application's door frame is effectively shorter/lower than the length of the cam body
Using the data tables for cams A0203, A0210 and A0240 we can select the following cam without projection with an off set of -4; A0203.AW6404 (steel).
