Door Hardware Basics
Most door hardware will fit the following door preparation. If you have something different, please contact us so we can help you find exactly what you need.
Modern deadbolts are simple, sleek and available in different functions to meet the needs of your application. Not sure which to get? These are your options:
Single Cylinder Deadbolts have a keyed cylinder on the exterior of the door and a thumbturn on the interior. Single cylinder deadbolts are the most commonly used type of deadbolt in home and commerical use.
Double Cylinder Deadbolts have a keyed cylinder on both sides of the door. This gives you the added security by requiring a key to enter or exit the room. However, for safety reasons, double cylinder deadbolts are not recommended for use in residential applications. The reason for this is that if there were an emergency, you would have to find a key to be able to exit the building. Some cities and counties actually don't allow use of double cylinder deadbolts. Double cylinder deadbolts are often used on glass doors where the owner wants to deter burglars from entry by not having a thumb turn that can be opened if the glass is broken. We are of the opinion that if someone is willing to break the glass in your door, they likely don't care if the deadbolt has a thumb turn or not..
Single Sided Deadbolts require special door prep as they do not have a deadbolt trim for the exterior half of the door. If your door is already prepped with a bore hole all the way through the door, this deadbolt will not work for you. Single sided deadbolts have a thumbturn on the inside and nothing on the outside.
