A DIN standard mortice lock, the 5700 series accommodates all levels of mobility and is ideal for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and buildings in domestic or public settings with high footfall such as schools or hospitals.
Offering unrivalled functionality and performance, the Briton 5700 series also features a 20mm single throw deadbolt, designed for single-turn, instant egress and a quick reversable latch for trouble-free on-site handling. The 5700’s assured durability is further supported by its CE and UKCA marks to EN 12209 and EN 179, as well as a 10-year guarantee.
