Ideal for aluminium doors and glass paned doors, the BL-5002 Borg Combination Lock comes as a kit with a very slim design 28mm backset flat pattern latch designed for narrow applications. These particular models are also fitted with DDA compliant handles, so should you be using these in a public setting where conforming to the relevant disability-friendly standards is required, the type of handles offered will not obstruct your compliance. Furthermore, the buttons on these are very large compared to some others, and are extremely easy to operate.
Putting combination code based entry on these types of doors with narrow stiles / profiles can often prove tricky, as most setups use a tubular latch or lock case which in many cases simply will not fit into the stile of the door you're working with. But Borg have recognised this and have put together this solution, utilising their purpose-made slim profile latch in order to allow you to have combination code entry on your narrow-stile / aluminium doors.
The 5000 series is graded as a heavy-duty solution, suitable for both quiet and busy traffic areas, providing a robust code entry lock for your private areas. The handle mechanism now incorporates a clutch slip function, which means if somebody were to try and force the handle - or even more innocently enter their code wrong and push firmly on the handle expecting it to open - the clutch mechanism inside will help to protect the lock against any damage or excessive wear caused by this force.
What's more, the range of finishes (of which you will see there are four; satin chrome, polished chrome, polished brass and stainless steel), all come PVD coated, so will last well against general wear and tear - and of course as always, even longer if routine maintenance and cleaning is upheld. This PVD coating also protects the finish against basic weathering, and as such, Borg state that these can be used externally; but urge you to only do this in sheltered areas.
Free Passage Mode is available, allowing you to set the lock into free mode to allow visitors to gain entry without the use of a code, or indeed to allow easier means of entry during delivery times etc for authorised persons.
