Paradigm – Square – GunmetalSKU: 005/B2GMDP
Gunmetal Square 005 Paradigm Lock is a versatile lock ideal for use with pivot doors, entry doors and any door that requires a key lock. This lock allows the occupants to be able to lock the door with the turn of the snib when home, or they can deadlock the door when leaving. When in a deadlock state, it means that if a burglar cannot open the door from the inside, making their job much harder.
The Gunmetal Square 005 Paradigm Lock is one of the most versatile locks giving you not only security but safety in the 3 function modes. The 3 functions are:
- Passage mode – This means the lock is not locked. The bolt is tucked in to the door so the user can come or go without hindrance.
- Night mode – This mode is when the door is locked via the turn snib from the inside. This way strangers cannot unlock the door from outside unless they have a key. Occupants of the house can easily get out by just turning the snib from the inside. This way if there is an emergency, the occupants do not have to look for a key to get out. Also if someone leaves the house while there are still people in the house, they can turn the key on the lock from outside until they hear or feel the first click. This means that they can also snib the lock while leaving without deadlocking in the occupants. There are many 3 way locks that do not allow for this function.
- Deadlock – This mode is important for security and for insurance purposes. Many insurance companies require you to have deadlocks on all external door including door between the house and a garage. When the lock is in a deadlock mode, nobody can get out or come in unless they have a key. It also means that thieves who try and break in by breaking an adjoining window or the glass in the door, cannot stick the hand through and unlock the door from the inside. When this mode is used, the lock shows a small red window on the inside to indicate that it has been deadlocked. This is called the ‘lock alert’ window.
