Nightlatches are a common locking product found mainly on residential front doors. They ordinarily feature a single sprung latch locking point which engages automatically when the door is shut, securing the property.
The Union 1022 traditional nightlatch is non-deadlocking and supplied as a case only without external rim cylinder. Suitable rim cylinders are available seperately and must be purchased additionally if no current rim cylinder is to be re used.
Being a traditional nightlatch, this nightlatch features a more ornate styling and appointments, and compliments traditional door sets such as those found on victorian or georgian style properties. This nightlatch is fixed dircetly to the surface of the door using supplied fixings.
This nightlatch features a means of mechanical holdback which allows the sprung latch bolt to be physically retained within the body of the nightlatch. When this feature is activated, the latch will not engage when the door closes, therefore the door will not be secured. It is important to consider if this is a feature that is desirable for the application in question as in some circumstances the possibility of the door not being secured may cause issues. Also, some mechanical holdback devices also allow the latch to be secured in the locked position preventing access even when a key is used from outside deadlocking the door. It should also be considered if this is suitable for the application.
