Application Restriction

Do not use this product on military, police, fire service and other installations where heavy handed use/abuse can be expected.
Specify K2100 series.

Rim Slide Bolt Function

Use this option where the door and frame design dictates that a mortice latch becomes impractical - e.g. where glazed doors will not allow a mortice.

This lock utilizes a solid rim mounted slide bolt - necessarily operated by a round knob outside with a turn snib on the inside. An authorized code is required to override the lock from the outside - passage function is achieved via the inside turn snib allowing the door to be left unlocked if required.

The door is always ‘free from fixings’ for immediate egress from the inside.

K500 Rim Slide Bolt Function

The backset length of the Rim Slide Bolt lock is not fixed but is adjustable. This dimension is dictated by the door and frame detail. Doors and frames do not need to be flush on the bolt side since the standard strike will accommodate jamb reveals when turned through 90 degrees.
