Door Hardware Basics

What is an Interconnected or Emergency Egress Lock?
An emergency egress lock is an entrance lock where the deadbolt and the knob/lever latch are linked with an interconnect device. The interconnect device makes the deadbolt and door latch open from the inside with one single action. The single action (unlock and open) function makes for a quick and easy exit from a building during an emergency. Some municipalities require an interconnected or emergency egress lock for apartments or residences. In this collection, we have emergency egress locks for residential applications, though we do carry options for commercial use (https://www.directdoorhardware.com/interconnected_lock.htm) in another collection.
If you're looking for an interconnected handleset to install in your home, you've come to the right place. With over 60 options to choose from, you can easily find the brands and lock styles you want for your doors. We carry handlesets from the top brands in the industry, like Emtek, Baldwin, Advantage, EZSet, and Omnia. Each of these brands is known for their high-quality door hardware that is built to last. You'll find an array of styles and finishes that will elevate the look of your front door. Some of these finishes include Oil Rubbed Bronze, Polished Brass, Satin Chrome, Antique Nickel, Pewter, and many more. When you find the perfect emergency egress handleset, you'll then select the handleset function (double/single cylinder or dummy), backset size, knob/lever style, door handing, finish, and the thickness of the intended door. You can create a unique handleset that beautifully complements the overall exterior of your home. Since the mechanism is usually behind the interior trim of the lockset, emergency egress locks will fit most doors with a standard door prep. If you're interested in the value of these types of handlesets, look no further than Direct Door Hardware to exceed your expectations in selection, pricing, and shipping cost. We make upgrading your doors easy and affordable!
