Albany Collection Emtek Handleset from the Albany Collection – Single Cylinder
Emtek's single cylinder mortise handlesets use traditional American mortise locks complete with a variety of trim styles, handcrafted from authentic materials. The mortise lock is operated by a key from the exterior, and a thumbturn from the interior. The door is opened from the exterior by a metal handle with thumb grip, and by your choice of a variety of knob and lever options from the interior. Uncompromisingly rugged and beautifully crafted, these locks are suitable for the very finest homes.
Note: Norwich Knob, Rope Knob, Rope Lever, and Rustic Lever Handle Styles not available in Flat Black finish.
The Classic Brass Collection's knob / lever handles are supported by springs mounted behind the rosettes and sideplates, which return the handles back to the rest position and prevent lever sag. The latches are heavy-duty die cast construction, with strong internal springs, solid brass nose bolts, and sintered metal cams. A plastic bushing located in the joint between the handle and the rosette ensures a friction-free wear surface, preventing metal from bearing on metal and providing smooth, long-lasting operation. Handles are positively connected to rosettes with a permanent clip. Each has a set screw which eliminates "handle wobble" when tightened. Emtek's threaded tubes are machined brass to ensure good threads and prevent corrosion.
