Lock Functions

Locks behave differently based on their lock function. You can have a lock that always lcoks every time the door closes or one that cannot be locked from the inside so that you never get locked out of a room. Below are the most common types of lock functions.

Passage

A Passage lock can be operated with the lever from either side at all times.


Dummy

A dummy lock can be pulled from the one side to open the door, however there is no mechanical operation.


Privacy

A privacy latch can be operated with the lever from either side. The outside lever can be locked by the push button. It can be unlocked by an emergency release on the outside or with the operating inside lever. Closing the door does not release push button.


Entry

An entry latch can be operated with the lever from either side except when the outside lever is locked by the push button on the inside. When the outside lever is locked, an operating key placed into the outside lever unlocks the device. The locking device will automatically release when the inside lever is operated. Closing the door does not release push button.


Classroom

A classroom latch can be operated with the lever from either side except when the outside lever is locked from the outside by a key. When the outside lever is locked, the latchbolt can be operated by the inside lever.


Storeroom

A storeroom latch can be operated by a key placed into the outside lever or by operating the inside lever. The outside lever is always locked while the inside lever is always unlocked.
