These features sound great don’t they?  But what do they actually mean to you the homeowner.

Let’s start with the multipoint lock, here’s what you need to know…..

The ERA multipoint lock has three locking points along the edge of the door.  These points are made up of two hooks located at the top and the bottom of the lock strip and a 22mm central deadbolt to further secure the door. The locking points are controlled and engaged when the handle is lifted. It’s this action that secures them into the frame.

How the Era lock works with your choice of handles

Handle options

With Residor there are two handle options available the first being a standard lever handle.

With this option you’ll have a lever handle both internally and externally and both require a solid spindle to function.

*A spindle is a solid metal bar that connects the internal and external lever handle. Without this the lever handle will not operate.

How it works

In order to fully secure the door you’ll need to lift the handle up and turn the key to lock the door into place.

If you decide on this locking system you can come and go as you please and you don’t need to worry about getting locked out. To lock the door you’ll need to lift the handle and turn the key.

Your second option is the lever pad handle

This type of handle requires a split spindle so that each handle is able to operate independently.

*This spindle is split in two meaning the external and internal handle can operate independently. 

How it works

When you close the door central latch will engage into the frame. This means that to reopen the door you’ll need a key. In order fully secure the door, you’ll need to lift the handle.
