Forming part of our Euro+ Modular range this British made Mortice Nightlatch case can be fitted as an alternative to more common surface mounted "Yale" type locks on entrance doors or in conjuction with a panic latch on emergency exit doors. The sprung latchbolt is withdrawn externally by key using a Single euro profile lock cylinder barrel and internally by either a separate thumbturn knob, a half set of lever door handles or a suitable panic exit device. The latchbolt may be held back in the withdrawn position by a reverse turn of the key. The automatic anti-thrust bolt prevents manipulation of the latchbolt on outward opening doors. Suitable for use with electric strike plates on communal entrance doors and can be fitted to fire rated timber door sets in accordance with current regulations. An ideal choice for both high quality, prestigious residential properties and heavy use commercial applications.
Select "Standard Sprung" for use with panic exit devices, thumbturns or door knobs. Thumbturns should be of a type incoporating an 8mm square spindle or a relevant spindle conversion sleeve. Select "Heavy Sprung" for use with lever door handles.
For high security, non emergency applications a suitable deadlock should also be fitted.
Detailed advice on the selection of mortice locks and latches can be found in our [Mortice Locks & Latches Specification Guide].
