A popular choice for front doors, smaller commercial premises and offices, drawback nightlatches are frequently used to provide security where occupants may need to leave the building in a hurry. Because the door can be easily opened from the inside without needing a key, this type of door is particularly useful in the event of a fire or other emergency where easy access to the outdoors is of paramount importance.
The combination of a drawback mechanism and a nightlatch has proved a popular choice for several decades and is manufactured by the leading lock company, Union. This type of lock can be easily fitted to doors which are already hung and can be fastened to timber or metal surfaces. Easy to operate and built to last from a combination of strong alloys, these robust items will often last for decades. If a lock is wanted which can be easily opened if necessary whilst still providing formidable protection, a purchase from the premium easylocks selection will do the job admirably.
