More About Commercial Lock Settings

  • push bars for emergency exits
  • commercial door lever-keyed entry function
  • classroom, hall/passage function
  • bed and bath privacy function
  • Mortise lock

The difference between these commercial locks and residential locks is, they are more secure and can withstand high traffic such as stores, hospitals, office space etc.

Another thing to note is that commercial locks can be used in residential buildings with multiple units.

What is a push bar? A push bar is mainly used in high traffic area exits like a mall or gym, and is often used on back doors for emergency exit by pushing on the bar located along the door.

Passage locks are used as a latching mechanism without a key or lock. They are simply used to travel between rooms and don’t provide any privacy.

Commercial door levers can be used in various settings such as a bathroom, a classroom with a keyed option, or simply a closet or cabinet door without a locking mechanism. Typically you’ll find these in hospitals, large offices and/or other commercial spaces.

Mortise locks are generally used in businesses with glass doors or commercial doors and have a latch and lock mechanism.

Here at Defense Locksmith we have technicians with the skill and knowledge to install any type of lock. Give us a call today to get your door set and secured.
