Discover the Security Benefits of 5 Lever Sashlocks

A 5 lever lock is more than just a locking mechanism; it's an investment in peace of mind, offering an elevated level of security that meets the rigorous British Standard BS 3621 standard required by most insurance companies. The standard covers lock assemblies operated by a key from both the inside and outside of the door and would include sashlocks and deadlocks. 

Enhanced Security Features

 Our 5 lever mortice sashlocks are meticulously crafted to prevent potential intrusions, delivering a powerful combination of durability and reliability. Each sashlock in our collection is engineered to offer insurance approved security for your home or outbuilding. Adhering to British Standards, these locks ensure compliance with insurance requirements, providing not just security but also help you with potential insurance savings and compliance.

Tailored to Your Needs 

Our 5 lever sashlocks come in a variety of finishes, including polished brass and satin chrome, ensuring they don't just secure your doors but also complement your door hardware.  Whether you're upgrading your home security or conducting a full-scale renovation, we offer:

  • Versatility: Our locks are suitable for both residential and commercial properties, offering universal application for timber doors needing that extra level of security.
  • Ease of Installation: Fitting your 5 lever mortice lock is straightforward, with all necessary fittings included.
  • Adaptable Design: These door locks are non-handed so can be fitted to left and right handed side hung doors. Ensure the latch bolt is reversed to suit the direction of closing. 
  • Rebate Kits: When fitting a lever lock to a pair of doors with a rebated meeting stile, ensure you use a compatible rebate kit. They are lock and brand specific. Ensure you select the correct rebate kit for your lock type, and in the matching finish. 

Technical Specification

It is standard across brands and manufacturers for insurance rated 5 lever sashlocks to be produced in two sizes.

  • 68mm case depth with a 45mm backset
  • 80mm case depth with 57mm backset.

The overall case height and forend dimensions can vary across brands and models but the case depth and backset to the keyway remain consistent. Another consistent measurement with 5 lever mortice sashlocks is the centres - the distance between the 8mm square handle follower and the centre of the keyway.

The centre measurement is important for two reasons. 1. For preparing the door and cutting out the pocket and timber to suit the door furniture. 2. For selecting your door handles, whether these are on a backplate or a separate handle and escutcheon.

If you are using door knobs, an upright mortice lock doesn’t always allow for the large roses. Two options are:

  • An insurance rated 5 lever deadlock and longer tubular latch to provide the required backset for door knobs.
  • A horizontal lockcase where the keyway and door knobs are in a horizontal line. However, these locks would not be insurance rated to BS 3621.

If you need a non-standard lockcase, a special finish to suit existing door hardware, or if you’re trying to find a like-for-like replacement door lock, contact our sales team today. We also have an in-house master locksmith who can key alike locks, cut additional keys, and also cut rim length keys to suit doors over 57mm thick.
