Locks & Door Hardware
Allegion PLC has announced the new LT Series of decorative tubular locks for use in high-end commercial and multifamily properties.
Built from the same foundational technology of the popular Schlage L Series mortise locks, the LT Series tubular locks utilize the same lever designs as the L series and thus provide seamless suiting with both the Schlage mortise lock and most Von Duprin exit devices.
“Facilities often require the use of multiple types of locks along with exit devices,” says Kenny Abell, product manager, Schlage commercial locks. “By basing the LT Series tubular lock off the L Series mortise lock, continuity of design is maintained while delivering the durable, high performance product that architects and building contractors have come to expect from Schlage locks.”
Design details combine a feeling of durability with a touch of elegance. The levers of the LT Series tubular locks are manufactured from solid brass and stainless steel to create a firm, heavy feel. The hidden lever attachment creates a clean, stylish look. Levers also move both up and down, consistent with the operation of the Schlage mortise lock or Von Duprin exit device. Lastly, the LT Series lock has independent lever movement in which turning one lever does not cause the other to rotate, creating less distraction, which is desired in higher-end environments.
