Internal doors are not usually a security risk and require no locking, but they do need to be secured to prevent them swinging open. Mortice latches will keep sprung or unsprung doors securely shut and are suitable for use with knobs or lever handles on both sides of the door. Home decor and the style of the door will determine which handle option to choose.
Easylocks has numerous different types of mortice latches available, from basic models like the Legge 3708 Mortice Latch, with a lever handle each side, to latches with automatic deadlocking action and hold back snibs, like the Chubb Union 3R35 5 Detainer Mortice Latch. This is intended for use on wooden doors to prevent slamming. Some latches can be used on double doors, such as the Union 2650 Rebated Tubular Latch, which is ideal for rebated French doors and is also suitable for use on 60-minute fire doors. Latches come in a variety of finishes, including satin chrome, electro brass and silver enamel and in a range of case width sizes.
