Built-in Latchlocks for Lockers

Built-in Latchlocks for Lockers

21 Apr 2020

Lockers and storage enclosures can be found in many different environments ranging from sports centers to educational facilities. Keeping locker contents safe is the primary goal and this can easily be achieved by using a built-in latchlock.

What is a latchlock?

Latchlocks are a type of lock in which the lock is incorporated into the handle. The handle turns to rotate the cam, operating the lock and opening/closing the door. The handle will often feature a hole to facilitate the fixing of a padlock of some description to secure the lock.

Types of latchlock

A range of built-in latchlocks suitable for lockers are available from Lowe & Fletcher. The most appropriate type for you will depend on your application, but much is down to design preference.

A freewheel latchlock is very secure as once a padlock has been fixed through the knob, it can rotate 360°. This way, the lock cannot be leveraged and broken.

Latchlocks with override keys are also available - these are a great choice in environments where emergency access may be required. This type of lock is also beneficial in places such as schools where locker keys are forgotten and misplaced on a regular basis. A master key can be kept by the facility manager, who can then operate the lock without cutting or damaging the latch.

Locks with housing lengths of less than 20mm and greater than 20mm are available to allow the locks to be built into lockers and enclosures with doors of different thicknesses.
