The Lockwood paradigm is a very versatile, strong lock that many residential architectural and commercial applications use. It is one of the most common locks on the Australian market and is pairs with many our products for a secure lock to any door
Its notable features include:
High purity using alloy or 304 grade stainless steel. Both can be used outside on front doors, side doors and on gates. For those close to the ocean, the stainless steel is resistant to weather and rust.
Size of the lock matches our trade and architectural range handles and can be used in conjunction with the passage set for a strong lock on any external door.
The paradigms can also be used in conjunction with one of our pull handles for a modern architectural setup.
The paradigm is both a snib/safety lock and a deadlock. A red/green indicator on the inside notifies you what state the door is in.
While in passage mode the snib is green and the door can be opened from the inside and the outside.
While in safety mode the door can be open from the inside but is locked from the outside unless one has a key. This is commonly known as a night latch to lock people out but to allow a quick exit if necessary.
While in deadlocked mode the lock cannot be open from the inside or the outside unless one has a key. This is what’s known as a deadlock where if an intruder breaks into a premises the door remains locked.
The paradigm pairs with a deadlatch as well instead of a bolt. This is similar to many older style locks that lock behind you.
For a keyless entry, the paradigm can be used with an electric strike. This can then be added to key card readers or keypads as well.
