Locks

There are many locks for many specific purposes.

Here you will discover locks for security or simply for good looks and functionality.

Putting together a functional door is not always an easy task. Our experience will assist you to make the best decision within your budget.

Function is the primary component in deciding on which lock is right for your door and application.

  • Do people need to exit easily without a key?
  • Does the door need to be self-latching?
  • What typical usage will the lock be exposed to? High, Medium or Low usage.
  • Will you want a restricted keying system to control who can get keys duplicated?

Primary functions of locksets generally include;

  • Entrance_ key outside unlocks outside/inside handle, snib inside locks outside/inside handle
  • Classroom_ key outside unlocks outside handle, inside handle always free to egress
  • Storeroom_ key outside retracts latch only, inside handle always free to egress
  • Office_ key outside unlocks outside handle, inside snib locks outside handle only, inside handle always free to egress
  • Double cylinder_ key inside/outside locks/unlocks both inside/outside handles
  • Privacy_ inside snib locks outside handles, external mechanism for emergency entry
  • Passage_ both handles always free to turn
  • Deadlock _ there are 2 types of deadlocks;
    • Deadlatch_ when shut the deadlatch mechanism prevents “carding” the door open, normally associated with locks with a keyed outside handle
    • Deadbolt_ a non-latching, key/snib driven security bolt

Keys

Keys are the integral component to any lock. The decision is more important than you may give consideration for. The keys that come with the lock you purchase off the shelf can be duplicated by anyone without question. The lock will also be vulnerable to lock-picking attacks.

Gate locks

Gates are manufactured in a number of ways, type of materials and ultimately limiting in the type of locks we can then install.

Simple metal framed gates are really only made for d-latch type catches which can be secured by a padlock. More robustly built gates requiring a fully functioned lock as you would find on a door needs to have a “Lock-Box” fabricated into the gate frame if it is not made in the same format as a door.
