Sophia Curved Lever Polished Brass Privacy Door Handles
Sophia polished brass curved lever handle on a plain privacy backplate. Used on doors that have a mortice latch. The door is locked by rotating the turn button or coin release on the handles located on either face of the door. The backplate measures 119x40mm and this set is supplied complete with connecting spindle and fixing screws. Privacy handles work in conjunction with a tubular latch, we recommend a York brass finish tubular latch, see related items below.
Privacy handles can be used on bathroom/bedroom doors or where privacy is required. These handles are normally used with a tubular latch, which is 2.1/2in (64mm) or 3in (75mm) long although longer sizes can be obtained if the handles need to be placed further in from the door edge. The tubular latch is mortised 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 allowing the door to open. On the handle fitted to the inside of the door there is a turn button. When the button is operated it ?locks? the tubular latch preventing the bathroom/bedroom door from being opened, except by turning the button again or by using the emergency release slot on the handle fitted to the outside of the door. The emergency release slot is usually operated by a coin or screwdriver. The handles are supplied complete with the spindle and fixing screws, but not with the latch, which needs to be purchased as a separate item, and is normally specified to have a matching finish to the handles.
Recommended latches shown are suitable for typical domestic use. Please refer to our mortice latch category for alternative heavier duty latches as used on commercial applications, or where a heavy duty product is required. A 2.5in (64mm) latch is normally recommended for lever handles.
