While our product range includes all sorts of locks, from furniture locks to rim locks, another popular access solutions is the mortice lock. A mortice lock is installed within the door, rather than attached to its outside like a rim lock. This affords a number of benefits to Barnet clients willing to go the extra mile and have a locksmith in to fit one.
Below, we’ve looked to run through a few of these benefits. If you’re interested in a different area of our business and need to speak with a Barnet Lock Centre locksmith, pick up the phone and dial 020 8440 3218.
1. Security – As the mortice lock sits within the door itself and is usually fitted by a qualified, experienced locksmith, it’s very secure. Would-be intruders will struggle to force it and picking it may prove even harder, as internally a mortice lock is comprised of various notches and levers. If you’re a security conscious homeowner or company owner in Barnet, a mortice lock is worth considering for how secure it is.
2. Versatility – Available in many different sizes and styles, a mortice lock is actually very versatile. We sell mortice latches, night latches, sliding door locks, metal door locks, sashlocks and deadlocks from many different manufacturers. These include industry leading brands like Marston and Legge.
3. Dual Locking – Another appealing feature that our Barnet locksmith is keen to extol to prospective customers, is the fact that mortice locks can be locked from both the inside and outside. So whether you’re heading out or locking up for the night, you’re set to go!
4. Aesthetic – A mortice lock has a certain antique quality that harkens backs to days of yore. But modern manufacturing techniques mean that modern mortice locks don’t look dated, and fit in perfectly with the current trend for “vintage” products.
