Forming part of our UK Modular range, this high quality Mortice Privacy Lock provides keyless locking of bathroom or toilet doors. Incorporating a heavy duty solid brass latchbolt for superior performance this lock is an excellent choice for both high quality residential and heavy use commercial applications. The lock is supplied with a spindle adapter sleeve making it suitable for bathroom thumbturn sets with either an 8mm or 5mm square spindle and with the option of "Standard Sprung" or "Heavy Sprung" handle follower. Can be fitted to fire rated timber door sets in accordance with current regulations. Manufactured in Britain by Guardian Lock & Engineering.
Select "Standard Sprung" for lever handles with integral springing in the rose or backplate or "Heavy Sprung" for handles described as being un-sprung. To avoid fixing screws fouling the lock body use handles with diagonally 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.
Can be fitted to double doors with rebated meeting stiles when used with the rebate conversion set in the Related Items section below.
