Door Hardware Help
Nearly all of Emtek's hardware is made from solid brass for long-lasting quality. Customers can choose from a wide variety of designs and even mix finishes and styles on individual lock sets, but you should feel free to let us know if you have any special needs or requirements. Browse the entire line of Emtek door knobs below. After you click on the style you like, you'll order the door knob function you need. The types of door entry functions available include Keyed Entry, Privacy, Passage, or Dummy. For exterior doors, we recommend using an Emtek passage function knob in conjunction with a deadbolt or looking at the Emtek keyed locks with side plates. These are basically just a passage door knob with a deadbolt all in one unit.
Next, you'll be able to choose a finish for your new door knobs. Some of the knobs have popular finishes that can't be customized. However, many of our Emtek door knobs offer a variety of options for the finish, including Satin Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Polished Nickel, Satin Nickel, Flat Black, Polished Chrome, Unlacquered Brass, and more. After you input the correct measurements for the backset and door thickness, you'll choose a strike and faceplate type before selecting the desired latch type.

Construction of Emtek Door Knobs
Emtek locks have heavy duty mechanisms designed to provide trouble free service. Knobs and lever handles are supported by springs mounted behind the rosettes and sideplates. These springs return the handles back to the rest position and prevent lever sag. Emtek latches are heavy duty construction with strong internal spring and solid brass bolt. Spindles are sring loaded "half spindles" for smooth operation even on imperfect door prep. Emtek knobs and lever handles have a set screw design which, when tightened, eliminates the loose handle feel you get with other brands. Set screws do not hold the handle on, but serve to remove the looseness. Emtek handles and rosettes are forged, not cast or stamped, providing a flawless surface which can be highly polished when desired. The generous thickness and weight of forged parts gives them a solid look and feel.
Emtek Door Knob Functions
Emtek door knobs are available in several functions the most common being keyed entry, privacy (bed and bath), passage (hall and closet) and single dummy. Each function is used for little different application.
Keyed Entry Knobs
Emtek keyed entry door knobs use a Schlage C 5-pin keyway. Keyed entry Knobs have a turn button on the interior side of the knob. Lock from inside by turning the turn button. Inside knob functions even in locked position for quick egress but knob remains locked until unlocked by turn button or key. Unlock from the outside using a key. The door knob is only locked when the push button is in the locked position. Many Emtek door knobs are not available with a keyed entry function because a key cylinder would drastically change the look of the knob. In this case we recommend using a passage function knob along with an Emtek deadbolt for a door that requires keyed entry.
Emtek privacy locksets lock by pressing push pin on the interior rosette. You do not need a key to unlock from the outside. There is no key cylinder, but there is a pinhole through which you can unlock the door using the generic tool provided. Privacy locks are generally used on bedroom or bathroom doors.
Emtek passage doorknobs are non- locking. These are great for hall doors or closet doors that do not need to lock, but a latching mechanism is still required. Also use a passage function knob along with an Emtek deadbolt for keyed entry.
Emtek dummy door knobs are sold as a dummy pair. These are non-functioning door knobs that are mounted to the surface of the door. Used on doors that do not need a latch mechanism like the inactive side of a french door for example. Single dummy knob available upon request.
