Rim locks are fitted to the surface of the door rather than being morticed in, along with a surface mounted keep that should be fitted to the door frame.
Our weighty rim lock range is forged from solid brass which emphasises the high quality materials and manufacturing techniques used. A perfect design choice to use throughout your property with many other matching products available. Our rim knob range is used in conjunction with our rim locks to provide an attractive, high quality finish to any period town house or country property. The product is handed and therefore care needs to be taken when choosing the correct hand. If your door is inward opening and hinged on the left then a left hand rim lock is required. Lockable via a snib on top of the latch.
Supplied with matching SS wood screws. Made from solid unlacquered brass, this finish is both classic and simplistic and offers great possibilities for stately and period dwellings alike, particularly where a very traditional look is desired. When fully polished this finish has a depth of reflection. However, as the product is unlacquered this can also be left to age naturally, which over time will create a beautifully historic finish. As our brass is unlacquered, it will naturally age through oxidisation, giving the product added character. However, if desired this finish can be maintained to a bright 'polished' finish with periodic polishing. To achieve this, please use a dry cloth or alternatively our 'Brasso' can be used to assist with the cleaning of solid brass products. Regular oiling of all moving parts using our '3-in-1 Oil' is beneficial to the longevity of your products. This process is also highly recommended during initial installation. An oily cloth can also be used to wipe over the product from time to time to aid protection against exterior or environmental elements.
