The Zoo Horizontal Mortice Latch - More Handles stock a great selection of horizontal mortice locks from Zoo Architectural Hardware. As the name suggests these locks provide a deeper fixing for the handle into the door than dead locks or sashlocks.
A horizontal mortice lock allows the key and lever handle or knob to be at the same height, which reduces the risk of catching a finger in the door.
Horizontal mortice locks are often used to replace the old Victorian locks fitted in more period properties. Horizontal mortice locks were more common before the introduction of lever handles.
NOTE: NOT suitable for fitting with a heavy un-sprung door knob. Please use a heavier sprung lock such as the imperial door lock version (G3011)
This range is built from 3 lever designs intended for internal door use.
