Forming part of our Euro+ Modular range this British made Mortice Privacy Lock provides keyless locking of bathroom or toilet doors and is an ideal choice for both high quality, prestigious residential properties and heavy use commercial applications. Suitable for lever handle furniture on backplate with integral privacy thumbturn, or on rose with seperate turn and release set. The lock is supplied with a 5mm to 8mm spindle adapter making it suitable for bathroom thumbturn sets with either an 8mm or 5mm square spindle. Particularly suitable for heavy, un-sprung lever handle furniture due to the strong follower springing. Fully reversible to suit left or right hand hung doors and approved for use on fire rated timber door sets in accordance with current regulations.
To avoid fixing screws fouling the lock body use handles with horizontally opposed bolt-through fixings or with backplates where fixings positions are adequately spaced. NOT recommended for use with door knobs.
Privacy locks should normally be used with an internal thumbturn plus an external release to allow operation of the bolt in an emergency.
