They serve the purpose of being able to lock but do not need to be as secure as a front door lock. Door levers on the other hand are more decorative and can be used on French doors or patio doors. Once you decide on what specific style of door handle or knob you would like to use it is time to decide on what finish you are looking for. Finishes include styles such as oil rubbed bronze polished brass satin nickel and many other types of finishes. There is no right or wrong style to choose from when it comes to the finish of a door handle however it is important to make sure that the style that you choose goes with the rest of the house.

The best lock for you will depend on the material of your door the type of door and the level of protection you require. Here we take a look at the types of locks available and some of their applications. Mortice sashlock - for timber doors. This type of lock is a mortice lock combined with a handle that operates the latch mechanism. This allows you to open and close the door without the need for a key and to lock it with a key as you leave the house. A three lever sashlock provides a mid-level of security whereas the five lever version provides a higher level. Five lever locks are usually used on back doors which require high levels of protection. Three lever sashlocks are typically installed on internal doors which need to be lockable.
