Privacy Locking Systems & Privacy Sets for Bathrooms or Bedrooms
Fitting new door hardware to a bathroom or other personal space where privacy is preferred? If, so consider which locking system is best for you!
Designed to compliment your chosen Door Hardware a complete Bathroom Privacy Set includes the following three items that are sold separately:
Privacy Thumb Turn,
Emergency Release (Indicating or Non-Indicating)
These three items all work together to meet your privacy needs. We have options for standard hinged doors and flush versions for sliding doors.
Option 1: Round or Square Privacy Set
A privacy set consists of a Thumb Turn and Emergency Release. The Thumb turn is fixed to the inside of the door to enable the locking function and the Emergency Release is fixed on the outside of the door. The two parts are connected by a 4.5mm square spindle which passes through the deadbolt mechanism in the door.
Option 2: Integrated Privacy
A simple and effective solution is to select your preferred door handle and opt for “Integrated Privacy”. Simply put, your chosen ‘Rose’ (the round backplate on which your door handle is fixed) has a small ‘privacy button’. When pushed in, this privacy button works with its partnering privacy latch to lock the door – the lever door handle cannot be operated from outside. The door is easily unlocked from the inside simply by operating the lever door handle as you normally would.
The Emergency Release features a safety slot, in which a screwdriver, coin or similar item can be placed to turn the lock in the event of an Emergency. You can also choose an Indicating/non-Indicating emergency release which provides a visual cue as to whether the room is occupied.
Our Bathroom Privacy Locks
We frequently recommend Privacy Sets for families with young children or the Elderly. A Thumb Turn is easy to operate, the Emergency Release is an important safety feature and occupants are less likely to accidentally lock themselves in (which sometimes happens with the Integrated privacy button).
The Thumb Turn and Emergency Release are almost always placed underneath your lever door handle, so be sure to select the same size rose and finish to complete the look. Designed to compliment your chosen Door Hardware these Privacy Sets are available in Polished or Satin Stainless Steel or Brass in an Antique, Satin or Polished finish. Thumb turns and emergency release are available on a round rose or a square rose featuring a visible or concealed (no screw holes) fix.
All of our door privacy sets are available in our standard finishes; Satin Stainless Steel, Polished Stainless Steel, Satin Black Chrome, Satin Brass, Polished Brass, Antique Bronze and Antique Brass.
Satin Stainless Steel and Polished Stainless Steel are our standard timeless finishes. Satin Black Chrome offers you an extremely durable, high-quality finish in a beautiful matte black and is our most sought after custom finish.
Brass and Satin Brass are also extremely popular, and we offer a flawless Brass electroplate in a combination of 24k Gold and Brass particles. The 24k Gold and Brass components stop the product from tarnishing, therefore we DO NOT clear lacquer this finish.
Antique Bronze is electroplated in a copper base and Antique Brass is electroplated in a brass base. Both finishes are then oxidised, and hand rubbed to give a beautiful, luxurious, old world finish and are designed to continue to age and tarnish over time. Due to the intricate nature of plated finishes, we recommend ordering as a complete batch to achieve a consistent finish. If you are matching an existing product e.g. tapware or door knocker, etc. please provide us with a sample so we can get as close as possible to the desired finish.
We also do Custom Electroplated, Baked Enamel, or any Powder Coated Finishes.
A Powder Coat finish offers you even more choice by allowing you to compliment your interior/exterior surroundings by choosing any Dulux or Interpon Powder Coat Finish such as Jasper, Monument, Sable CoreTen, Zuess White and so on. A baked enamel or two-pack finish gives you any choice of colour including metallic finishes commonly used in the motor industry.
