Emtek Hardware for Your Log Home

Dedicated to the proud tradition of American decorative hardware, Emtek has been supplying distinctive door locks for over 15 years. 

FUNCTIONS Emtek locks are available in all the functions required in a house. These include Passage, Privacy, Dummy, deadbolts, keyed sideplate locks, Single-Keyed and Double-Keyed. Key-in-Lever and Knob locks are available with one function only, with a keyed cylinder on the outside and a turn-piece release on the inside. 

Passage - Used for doors where no locking is required. 
Privacy - Usually used on bathroom doors and any other door that needs to be locked from the inside.
Dummy - Used on fixed (non-operating) doors and sometimes on closet doors. Sold as a pair.

Single Cylinder - The most popular configuration for deadbolt locks, a keyed cylinder is provided for the outside and a turn-piece is located on the inside. The lock may be locked or unlocked with a key from the outside. The turn-piece allows locking or unlocking without a key from the inside.   

Double Cylinder - Used in situations where free egress from the inside is not needed or desired. Keyed cylinders are provided for both outside and inside. Locking and unlocking can

be accomplished only with a key. 

HANDING - Locks with lever handles are handed; locks with knob handles are not handed. Lever locks are handed because they have a high quality, "European" style mechanism that provides a firm feeling, spring supported rotation downward and a solid stop at the top of the movement. Since the levers do not rotate upward, they must be assembled with prior knowledge of which will be on the outside and which on the inside. Determine the handing of your door by standing on the outside of the door. If the hinge is on the right, it's a right handed door, and a right handed lock. If the hinge is on the left you need a left handed lock. 
  
Backset - In the U.S. there are two common backsets for residential locks, 2-3/8" and 2-3/4". The backset is the distance from the edge of the door to the center of the 2-1/8" bore hole. Locks are packed with a 2-3/8" or 2-3/4" latch depending on which backset you specify. Dummy sets have no latch and are surface- mounted so you can install them wherever you choose on the door.

All Emtek products are Custom Order, 2 weeks for delivery and are non-returnable.
