Very similar in shape and size to a rim lock, this kind of horizontal mortice locks were first used in the Georgian and Victorian times, typically in grand, or more expensive homes, where a traditional rim lock was viewed as too 'rustic.' The followers are aligned horizontally, rather than vertically, as seen on most modern locks.
This is a bathroom lock, which is operable by a turn & release with a standard 5mm Spindle. Originally, this type of horizontal mortice lock would have been key operated, however this modern variation on an old design allows for the use of a turn & release, whilst still maintaining the period feel and dimensions of an original lock.
Please note: The polished stainless steel variation has to be constructed to order, and can take up to 3 Weeks.
Supplied in SINGLES complete with fixings.
