Charleston Collection Emtek Lockset from the Charleston 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 via your choice of a variety of knob and lever options from both the exterior and the interior. Uncompromisingly rugged and beautifully crafted, these locks are suitable for the very finest homes.
Note: Dog Knob only available in Oil-Rubbed Bronze and Satin Nickel Finishes. Beaded Egg Knob, Belmont Knob, Lancaster Knob and Victoria Knob Handle Styles are not available in Pewter, Polished Chrome or Lifetime Polished Brass finishes.
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.
