5 Lever Mortice Locks
Is your lock British Standard compliant or do you need to upgrade?
Bob’s Locks, Stirling – emergency locksmith recommend all locks should be upgraded and replaced with 5-lever locks, tested to BS3621:2004, which can be identified by the British Standard Kitemark symbol. This is usually a minimum insurance requirement and can be found on the faceplate of the lock.
Mortice locks are embedded into the door itself and can only be opened with the key. They are commonly found on back doors and are often fitted to front doors in addition to a cylinder rim lock (Yale lock).
Mortice locks can often be described as a deadlock or sash lock. A deadlock is a mortice lock which has just a key hole and a bolt. A sash lock has a bolt, latch, and a pair of handles.
Mortice locks have several lever variations: a 2, 3, 5 or 7 lever mechanism. 5 lever and above can be British Standard or non British Standard. The higher the number of ‘levers’ the more difficult the lock is to “pick” and the more secure it will be. The higher the lever count in the lock, the more key variations there are eliminating duplicate keys. Why not call our emergency Stirling locksmith today!
