Emtek Imperial Handleset is Available in the Following Functions

Single Cylinder Handleset
Emtek single cylinder handlesets are locked/unlocked with a key from the exterior and locked/unlocked from the inside of the home with a thumbturn. Single cylinder handleset are by far the most popular function of handle set.

Double Cylinder Handleset
Emtek double cylinder handlesets have a keyed lock on both sides of the handleset. This means that to exit or enter the door you must have a key to unlock the door. Some people use double cylinder handlesets on glass doors where they are concerned that someone may be able to break the glass and unlock the door from the inside. The disadvantage of using a double cylinder handleset is that in the event of an emergency you would have to locate the key to unlock the door and get out of the building. For this reason we recommend the single cylinder handleset for most applications.

Dummy Handleset
If you have a double front door where one side is generally inactive while the other is always active, you will need a combination of two handle sets. For the active side, you'll need a single or double cylinder handleset. For the inactive door, you'll want to order a dummy handleset. This gives you the look of a complete working set, but doesn't have all of the mechanisms - perfect for an inactive door.

Add On: Emtek Interconnect device
Emtek offers an interconnect device as an available option for their active handlesets. The interconnect device connects the interior lever or knob with the deadbolt on an emtek handleset. When you turn the knob or lever the interconnect device retracts the deadbolt simultaneously to unlock the door. This is just an added convenience that is available, but not required.


Emtek covers it's door hardware with a 5 yr finish and mechanical warranty. Living finishes are not covered under this warranty as they are designed to change over time. For more information see Emtek Door Hardware Warranty.

Emtek products are assembled per order so when they are returned the doorknobs have to be taken apart and restocked. As a result, there is a 25% restock fee on all Emtek products. If items are returned that have been installed, used or abused there may be a higher restock fee assessed or no credit issued. If you need to return an item, please repack the door hardware in it's original packaging to assure that it arrives undamaged. For more return information see our Direct Door Hardware Returns Page. Before returning any Emtek Door Hardware, please contact us for a return authorization number.

The set had 2 light duty parts that will make me look for another manufacturer next time. The dead bolt connector rectangular rod was too thin, and bent easily when getting the knob in the correct position, then again when mortising the plate in, even plate drag on the deadbolt when throwing the interconnect handle down bent the flat rod again. The interconnect device was also too light duty I had one of the c clip washers pop off during installation. And the way it was flexed into position and the thickness of its material was cheap. sincerely, Josh

Great Handleset
We love our door knob. It's gorgeous! It is a little hard to turn in one single action. I'm sure it will get easier as time goes by.

Quality Handleset
After having spent hours on-line looking for a front door handleset that would fit my 2 1/4 inch thick door, and checking all the measurements, I went with this set. Had it installed by a professional locksmith, and it looks and works great.

Absolutely beautifully!
We searched for a replacement when our front doorknob broke. This was a perfect replacement! It matched the elegant style we previously had and covered all of the damage the old one left behind, which was difficult to find elsewhere. Installation was easy easy only took about 30 minutes (we had to drill a new hole in the door for the bottom of the handle. ) It did take a bit of time to have it shipped as the components are customized to your application but the wait was worth it. I highly recommend!

Questions and Answers

Question 1- Does this handset come in black colour?. 2- My door is a single side 36" x 80" x (1 3/4)" door.
Asked by: K. Sayad - 1/29/2015
Question This lock is not available in black. It is available in Oil Rubbed Bronze which is a dark bronze color. Answer provided by:  Josh (1/30/2015)
Question Does the Imperial handleset come in flat back finish? I have black painted iron doors.
Asked by: Karen palmeri - 4/18/2016
Question This does not come in black. The closest match would be the oil rubbed bronze. It would be a dark color with copper colored highlights around the edges. Answer provided by:  Jake L (4/19/2016)
Question Does this lock from the outside without a key?
Asked by: lock on its own? - 9/6/2023
Question No, you can only lock/unlock this unit on the outside with a key. The inside, if you order a single cylinder function can be locked/unlocked with a thumbturn. If you order double cylinder function, you would need to have a key to lock/unlock from either side of the door. Answer provided by:  Zach (9/6/2023)
