Types of locks for main entrance doors

Click image for Larger 

When it comes to choosing the locks for your entrance doors, upon aesthetics, each individual styles does have different functions and applications.

1. Gripset, aka bored lock or Entrance Handleset. As this lock is mostly given by HDB, its one of the most common lock in Singapore context. Key operates bolt on the top, while thumb triggers activate the latches. Typical cyclic tested for 200,000 cycles

2 & 3. European Profile Mortices is probably the second most common locks in residential & commercial. Typical cyclic tested for 500,000 cycles and are fire-rated approved. Lever styles has many varieties, on Rosette 2 or on Plate 3. This is also very versatile as components are interchangable. High-security cylinders with special keys are widely available on European profile platform, do speak with us for more details

4. ANSI Mortice Entrance set is made well known by Baldwin in Singapore, commonly seen in older condominiums projects. This look is highly robust, cyclic tested for 800,000 cycles. Look is also configure in Slam Shut while Passage function is temporary available.  ANSI can only be installed in minimum 45mm doors thus unsual in HDB estates.

5 & 6, Pull handles recently got popular in Residential areas, which we only seen them in shopping centres or office entrance. Pull handles comes in different lengths, thus positions of cylinder can vary. Common pull handles will sit on European profile roller lockcases, however occasionally on deadbolts for budget consumers. High-security cylinders with special keys are widely available on European profile platform, do speak with us for more details

Digital door locks are also getting popular with entry modes of either magnetic keys, RFid cards and Biometrics. This lock had created added convenience of not carrying keys to open the doors. 

7. Digital lock on pull handles are common for Condominium as apartments comes with pull handles and owners get a ADD-ON digital rim lock to be installed above the pull handles.

8. Also in Luxurious Condominiums, developers includes this lock as it shares the same platform for access cards to apartment locks. Thus reducing the hassle of keys or many cards.
Lever handle will sit on a mortice and bigger brands does offer Key-overwrite and even European mortice.
