German term or phrase: Wechsel-Garnitur/Druecker-Garnitur (door locks)
In a text about an office fit-out. A W-G could be fitted instead of a D-G for added security but this would prevent anybody entering. Wechsel-Garnitur is the problem. Could it just mean changing the door-opening system, as in Auswechseln, or this a specific type of system. Any clues welcome! Thank you.
