Front Entrance Lever Sets

Article Written by Nadine

Front Entrance Lever Sets are very popular as they are simplistic in design and very user friendly. Lever Entrance Sets have been around for some time now and are interchangeable with variety of finishes. Basic Levers features are key lock on the outside and either a turn thumb snib or push button that you lock the door internally. But some have the added feature of a deadbolt lock providing extra security, once you turn the key. The main feature being once it is locked from the outside anyone trying to get from inside out will also need a key.
Our perfect keyed Levers L7 comes with a thumb snib and Combination with a Dead Bolt. The Combination set comprising of the keyed dead bolt lock and the keyed lever utilising one key. This allows you to have the preference to walk in and out of your house with just shutting the door that simply latches the door close but not locking it. Alternatively, you can lock either or both for that added security. Combination sets especially the keyed dead bolt lock offers a piece of mind when on holidays, just turn twice to lock the bolt for extra length in the bolt to strengthen more into the door frame.
