UPVC Door Locks
These lock types fit inside the edge of the door. The Lock is a strip running from top to bottom along the edge of the door which has been morticed down the side in the door. When the handle is lifted up on either side of the door, all the locking points on the edge engage into the keeps located on the side of the door frame. The key is then turned 360 degrees to be dead locked. Some models have a key wind action that allows the key to rotate 720 degrees to aid the lock bolts or hooks to wind in, out or up & down along the locking strip on the door lock edge. This type of key wind lock has a non-moving pull pad style handle on the outside of the door & on the inside a handle to push down to be able to exit.
