Mortice locks are installed within a recess or hole in a door, rather than fitted to the surface of the door like Night Latch Locks. Mortice locks come in two forms a 'Sashlock' and a 'Deadlocks', both come with different security levels, where 5 Lever British Standard lock is what our locksmiths advise for every exit door. Mortice Deadlocks are common on wooden front doors to compliment either a bolt or nightlatch lock. Mortice Sashlocks with handles have a latch and bolt, and are usually found on back doors and internal bedroom doors where the latch is operated by a handle and the bolt is operated with a key to lock it in place.
Mortice locks can either have levers or a cylinder. Lever Mortice locks can have anything between 2 - 5 levers, the 5 lever mortice lock is the most secure with the incorporation of anti-drill plates ( Hard steel plate which can prevent vandals from drilling through to gain access).
