This high security automatically deadlocking BS nightlatch from Asec is ideal for use with solid and glass panelled wooden doors to provide additional security against forced entry.

The bolt can also be held in the withdrawn position with the use of the snib feature for convenience when required. This rim fixing nightlatch conforms to British Standard 3621:2004 (BS EN 12209) and the cylinder has over 30,000 cut key differs as well as featuring an integral cylinder pull which helps to protect the cylinder from being drilled
The conflict between a secure British Standard accredited front door lock and fire safety recommendations has now been overcome thanks to the new Keyless Egress Range. The new BS 8621:2004 standard mirrors the BS 3621:2004 but is for â€˜escapeâ€™ locks. The locks are classified as providing keyless egress at all times. This applies where there is a requirement for an easy action method of opening an external door from the inside with no need for keys or similar devices for unlocking - specially relevant for entrance doors in multi-residential and other buildings. A keyless lever on the inside of the door ensures it is possible to make an emergency escape in the event of a fire.
The ERA BS High Security Nightlatches feature an integral cylinder pull which protects the cylinder from being drilled, and comes with a 20mm bolt throw for increased security and strength. The cylinder of the 1830 & 1930 furthermore has over 30,000 cut key variations. This product is ideally suited for glass panelled wooden doors, as it has been designed with an ergonomic internal lockable handle offering added security against forced entry. The main lock bolt of the nightlatch â€œautomaticallyâ€ deadlocks, making the use of a credit card to force entry virtually impossible. The bolt can also be held in the withdrawn position yet only with the use of the snib feature. Finally, the BS 1830 & 1930 High Security Nightlatch conforms to British Standard 3621:2004 (BS EN 12209), and meets the tough criteria laid down by the insurance companies and police.
