Residential Property Lock Systems

When it comes to residential or small commercial properties, there are a wide range of lock systems that are being used depending on the settings and security needs. Houses, apartments, student housings, offices and others all use similar types of lock systems but on different security scales and different mechanisms.

Privacy lock-sets will be common for interior use. This means that most likely no key would be necessary in order to lock or unlock the door. However, there will be a thumb-turn on the interior side of the door which will give the user control on the locking status. These types of lock-sets can be found on restrooms and bedrooms mostly. These lock-sets will come in a form of lever or door knob for easy access.

They are widely used and very common in a double door knob form in which key is required from the exterior side and sometimes from the interior side as well. Few options are presented depending on the security needs of the user such as the ability to use a thumb-turn from the inside while a key is used on the outside, a key to be used from both sides, or even a knob that will control both the exterior and interior locking mechanism at the same time.

handle-sets are normally the more stylish and efficient security lock system available for residential settings. It will normally combine a doorknob along with a deadbolt which will come in one large unit. The user will have the option to choose between a single or a a double cylinder deadbolt to be part of the set. The handle-sets can be found in a variety of designs and styles that may add to the appearance of the front door of your home.
