What is the CF Mechanism?

Maybe you have seen a ton of great hardware already from Emtek, but have you seen the new(er) CF mechanism they came out with? Now your question might be “What in the world is that?”…  It’s only something that’s awesome, something that’s genius, something you all will probably want! CF is short for ‘Concealed Fastener’. In other words this system that is oh so genius is a super sleek design with no exposed screws. I say again… you can’t see the screws! Brilliant! This makes all of their modern, stylish, unique, awesome designs of door hardware even more sleek.

 

All of Emtek’s Brass, Stainless Steel, Bronze, Crystal and Porcelain interior passage and privacy locksets are available with the CF mechanism feature. You can see all of the door knobs and levers with the CF mechanism here.

 

There is no handing required on any CF mechanism, not even for the levers. You don’t have to worry about if your door is a right hand or left hand with the CF mechanism. It’s also easy and simple to install. These are designed to fit standard door prep and a door thickness of 1 3/8″ to 1 3/4″, but if you have a door thickness that is up to 2 3/4″, Emtek offers special accommodations to fit it, just make sure you specify when you order and we will make sure to send you the right items.

 

What’s also pretty cool about this new feature is that it also includes a 28 degree latch.

Standard latches will require you to turn the door knob or push the lever down (like the picture above shows) a lot more than it would require you to turn a door knob or lever with a 28 degree latch. You will love how smooth it operates. It’s just something more convenient to have that Emtek has offered with the cool CF mechanism! It doesn’t seem like you could go wrong with choosing the CF mechanism, does it?
