The mortise lock is a type of lock that requires a pocket to be cut into the door.
Widely recommended by security experts to add greater security value compared to deadbolts and cylindrical locks, it is presently the minimum requirement that one should have for main and external doors.
A mortise lock is highly customisable, allowing one to mix and match the lever handle, mortise lock case, euro profile cylinder and escutcheon cover, across different brands and quality. The euro cylinder is also rekeyable and easily replaceable.
At Locks n’ More, we offer various types of mortise locks from the average to heavy duty, sash to deadlock, regular bolt to hook.
We carry established brands such as Kale Kilit of Turkey; Tesa of Spain; AGB of Italy; Abus, Dorma and Hafele of Germany; and Yale of USA.
Allow us to recommend suitable mortise for wooden doors, aluminium doors, sliding doors and even grills for your home and office.
European profile is a type of cylinder design predominately used in Europe. Unlike traditional mortise and rim cylinders, the Euro profile uses a single piece of metal to connect both sides of the lock. A single cam component is placed between the two sides of the lock and is directly connected to both plugs.
A euro cylinder lock is a lock constructed with a cylinder that a locksmith can easily unscrew to facilitate re-keying.The cylinder may contain any of a variety of locking mechanisms, including the pin tumbler lock, the wafer tumbler lock and the disc tumbler lock.
A lever handle is a lock design that uses flat pieces of metal and a bolt as locking components. In this article, ‘lever lock’ does not mean a locking lever handle incorporating a cylinder locking device. In most designs, the position of the levers prevents the bolt from retracting. When positioned properly, a gate in the lever allows the bolt to move . Lever locks are historically one of the most popular lock designs, but use has declined as less expensive pin-tumbler locks have gained popularity. Lever locks are popular in Europe , eastern Europe, and some parts of South America, as residential and commercial door locks and on safes.
