Locks Latches - Door Furniture & Accessories
A range of door locks including dead locks, sash locks, Yale type locks and Era locks all of which meet current security requirements for almost all homes but which are nonetheless inexpensive, any lock rated as BS3621 will meet your insurers requirements.
There are many different types of door locks available for front entrance doors, the most common in use is the Yale 77, there are many variations of these type of locks including the Era Standard lock, these are known as "night latches" and offer minimum security.
We offer an enhanced Yale type lock which is known as the RCB8260 which are roller latches, regardless of how good these locks are we always recommend that you fit a 5 lever mortice dead door lock to comply with BS3621 which in turn complies with your insurance requirements.
It is possible to use 5 lever mortice sash locks and/or latches on their own, these locks also comply with BS3621 for insurance purposes, when using these type of locks you must remember that you will need a pair of lever/lock handles, these type of locks are normally fitted to the rear door to give easier access but is also useful for those of you who may have limited hand mobility.
When fitting internal doors please make sure you buy the correct finish and depth of door latch, ball handles should have a larger door latch (95mm) but make sure they are suitable for the size of the door style chosen, conversely, lever handles should have a smaller door latch (65/75mm) fitted.
The only time to watch out for a difference to the above is when you decide to fit bathroom door locks and latches, we supply handles that are locking and are for use with a door latch, we also supply full WC locks which require the use of a pair of WC Door lock handles, the difference between the two types of handles is the size, the locking handle is generally the smaller type with a turn button that locks the handle, the WC locking handle is the longer type with a turn button that operates the door locks.
Most of our locks and latches are available in brass, chrome or nickel plated finishes and in differing sizes, Just ask!
