Sliding Door Locks
We are pleased to announce we have an excellent range of sliding door locks, along with flush handles and pull handles.
Sliding Doors are a popular and long-established style of door in mainland Europe and are gaining in popularity here in the UK.
Often used in hotels and apartments, because of their space-saving capabilities, the contemporary designs now available also means that architects and interior designers are making much more use of the sliding door in both commercial and residential applications.
Sliding doors are appropriate in many different situations, and are made in all kinds of different sizes and materials. Usually supported on a hanging rail they simply hang over the wall space when open. There is a growing trend to fitting pocket sliding doors, where the door recesses into a special cavity in the wall itself, and is therefore completely invisible when open.
How can I make my sliding door more secure?
Locking a sliding door requires a hook lock rather than the standard bolt to secure the door shut. Our sliding door locks are specifically designed for sliding and folding doors. They usually have a hook bolt that is morticed into the frame, with a thumb turn that operates the lock mechanism.
Many of More Handles sliding door locks have recessed pull handles fitted to the leading edge of the door allowing you to draw the door out from a recess within the wall.
We have a variety of sliding door locks to suit all types of sliding doors, the black sliding door lock from Heritage Brass is a contemporary piece that is suited to modern bathroom and toilet doors. To Eurospec's Patio door bolt that is suitable for most wooden, metal hinged or sliding doors and windows and many more traditional and contemporary designs.
