vertical rim lock | cut sheet

Posted on January 30th, by gbettenhausen in Project Management. No Comments

Here is our cut sheet for a vertical rim lock that can be surface mounted to either the interior or exterior side of an entry door. Any knob can used for both the interior and exterior sides of the set which is made complete with a skeleton key for locking.

Rim locks were made popular in the 18th and 19th centuries and have been utilized since to maintain that early vintage look. This particular rim lock is taller than it is wide, apart from the traditional style which takes up more door lengthwise.

Here are a couple photos of entry hardware we did for a client in Highland Park, Illinois.

Complete with a 14″ rim lock set and our 4.25″ solid brass Georgian door knob, this polished brass entry set obviously isn’t messing around.
