Last week we discussed the importance of commercial door hardware . Hardware should live up to the quality of the doors themselves, and vice versa. Both play their roles in construction and Doormart USA always ensures the best products available. In terms doorknobs and locks, Doormart USA offers a variety of cylindrical locks from two of the top brands in commercial door hardware : Falcon and Schlage. Schalge is well known among both contractors and individual consumers alike. They are commonly found in both buildings and homes –for good reason of course!
Cylindrical locks are cost-effective for commercial usage. Installation is very easy so owners of the building can feel confident that they can easily take care of the door handles, should a problem arise later down the line. That will put their minds at ease knowing it’s one less thing to worry about when it comes to maintaining the building once it’s been completed.
Grade 2 locks are best for medium usage, while Grade 1 is better for doors that receive a lot of traffic. However, both are durable and long lasting. With a huge variety of finishes and styles, the hardest part will probably be choosing which will work best with the design of the building or area you are remodeling.

Replacing front door locks may not be the most exciting home improvement project, but it can be an important one. There are many different styles and designs, which allows the homeowner to customize the look of the door and to create a distinctive appearance for the home.
The two primary types of locks for front doors are the main entry lock, which includes a knob, lever, or handle for opening the door, and the deadbolt. Entry locks can be locked from both the inside and the outside. The mechanism on the inside of the door is typically operated by turning or depressing a small knob. Most front doors have both an entry lock and a deadbolt for maximum security.
Deadbolts are so called because they do not include a spring mechanism. They are intended to prevent a burglar from being able to pry the door open.
Single-cylinder deadbolts are opened by a key from the outside, and with a turning button from the inside. Double-cylinder deadbolts require that a key be used from either side. They are often used for doors that have glass panes in them.
How can I fix my door handle (lever) to actually lock? All of the bedrooms have a lever type
door handle with a lock but the only door that actually locks is the master bedroom. none of the other door levers lock when i twist the lock thingy. I'm guessing the owners may have done something to it so that their children would not get locked inside.
The locks you have pictured has a key lock, which is not normal for bedrooms. I would replace them with simply locks that you can just poke something in them to unlock them.
Double-cylinder locks are not always permitted by building codes in some areas.
Mortise locks offer the most security. In this type of lock, the lock body is placed inside the door. The installation of this type of lock is best left to a professional. Mortise locks are stronger than bored cylindrical locks. They can bear the weight of more ornate and solid-cast handles or knobs, which bored cylinder locks cannot do, making this type of lock more flexible in terms of style. The external hardware can be changed on an existing mortise lock to change or update its appearance.
Bored cylindrical locks are installed in two perpendicular holes cut into the door. They are less expensive than mortise locks and simpler to install. Tubular cylinder locks are less strong than true bored cylindrical locks.
Selecting an attractive front door lock that enhances the home’s beauty and curb appeal is easy. Sets can be purchased which include the main entry lock and the deadbolt. Many manufacturers offer the opportunity to partially customize their lock sets by selecting different knobs or levers.
Question: What could this dream mean? I awoke from a recurring dream where I`m in an arctic research station with a bay window a as large as the wall. In the station it`s dark but warm. The station door is another wall that locks with three pylons (massive cylindrical locks).
Answer:: So 'YOU' are in a 'COLD' place. a cold place in 'REAL WAKING LIFE' (not a physical place). You live there and you have secured yourself/emotions/vulnerability. by 'LOCKING' yourself in.in. So the natural reaction is to set up a secure 'DWELLING PLACE' so no one can harm.
If a lock is to be installed in an existing door, the selection may be limited by the holes that are already in the door.
Many finishes are available to appeal to any taste. The most often seen are satin nickel, distressed nickel, aged bronze, bright brass, antique brass, bright chrome, satin chrome, antique pewter, matte black, oil-rubbed bronze, and satin stainless steel. True antique locks may not provide adequate security to be used as front door locks. However, replicas that look like antiques, but protect with all the strength of a modern lock, can be found.
Front door locks should be both attractive and provide adequate security. There are plenty of different options that every homeowner can find just the right combination of finish and design. The front door is the face a home shows to the world, and the hardware should reflect the home’s personality.
