DOORS
Exterior Doors
It’s best to choose a door that complements the exterior of your home, satis es your security needs, and is energy ef cient—and the hardware you use has a lot to do with that.
LOCKS
Exterior doors can be used to welcome guests into your home, or to prevent others from gaining entry, and the type of lock you choose can make all the difference. Whether you’re looking for a traditional deadbolt or one with smart home keyless entry technology, our showroom experts can help you choose the lock that  ts your door, your security needs, and your design aesthetic.
TYPES OF LOCKS
Entry locks are your home’s  rst line of defense, so it’s important to choose the lock that  ts your door and  ts your needs. The most common types of locks for residential entry doors are deadbolts and door knob locks, but there are many options even within just those types. Are you looking for an all-in-one deadbolt? Should you choose a single- or double-cylinder deadbolt? Do you have a knob or lever handle? Think about what you want, research what you need, then visit a showroom to discuss the best option for you.
KEYED ENTRY SET
Just as the name implies, this type of set includes a knob or lever with a key- operated lock. This style is often used on a garage-to-house door, or other auxiliary entry doors.
DEAD BOLT
For added security, a dead bolt can be used along with a knob or lever set. A dead bolt incorporates a thick through bolt inserted in the jamb of the door. (Mortise and tubular handle sets usually include a dead bolt.)
KEYLESS ENTRY
Keyless locks can be operated with
a key, but do not require a key for entry. They come in many formats (handle sets, dead bolts, etc.) and are programmable, combining convenience and security.
