Bedford Scroll Lever Polished Brass Keyhole Door Handles
Bedford polished brass scroll lever handle on a plain keyhole backplate. Used on doors that have a mortice door lock operated with a key. The backplate measures 154x40mm and this set is supplied complete with connecting spindle and fixing screws. Typically fitted with a York polished brass mortice sashlock, see related items below.
Lever lock handles have a keyhole cut into the back plate. They are used in conjunction with a mortice sash lock, which is usually 2.1/2in (64mm) or 3in (75mm) wide and consists of a latch and a deadbolt. The sash lock is fitted into the edge of the door whereas the handles are fitted to either side of the door and are connected by a spindle located in the back of the levers. When the levers are pressed, the spindle rotates and operates the latch in the sash lock allowing the door to open. When the key is turned the deadbolt is operated, locking the door. The handles are supplied complete with the spindle and fixing screws, but not with the lock which needs to be purchased as a separate item, and is normally specified to have a matching finish to the handles.
Recommended locks shown are suitable for typical domestic use. Please refer to our mortice lock category for alternative heavy duty or high security locks. A 2.5in (64mm) lock is normally recommended for lever handles using a 2 or 3 lever security level for internal doors and 5 lever British Standard Kite Marked for external doors.
