Latch - the mechanism that holds the door closed.

Lock - a lockable latch.

Door lever handles are considered more ergonomically friendly than door knobs. The design of door lever handles allows for a more natural and comfortable hand position while operating the door. They require a simple downward motion, which is easier on the wrist and hand muscles compared to the twisting or gripping motion required by door knobs. This makes door lever handles easier to use for children, the elderly, and people with limited strengh or mobility.
There are many factors to consider when specifying your chosen door handle and latch: How thick is the door? How far from the door edge should the handle sit? Should I choose door knobs or lever handles? Our friendly team are here to guide you through and have a wealth of expert hardware knowledge and advice to offer.
