Have a Thicker Door and Need to Find A Handleset to Fit?

Handlesets are great for any entry door. It’s secure, it’s easy to use and it’ll dress up your front door. You can choose from a wide variety of finishes that will coordinate with all the rest of your door hardware throughout your house. Not only is there a wide variety of finishes, but you also have different styles of handlesets to choose from, such as double sided, two point locks, emergency egress/interconnected handlesets, and mortise locks. If you have french doors, dummy handlesets are available for the inactive door. It’s fun to be able to pick and choose all the different styles and all the different interior door knobs and levers that can make your front door either unique, or you can match the rest of your hardware throughout your house. Make sure to order from the same brand if you want your finishes to match. Anyway, enough about all the different styles and options you can choose from, what happens if you have a thicker door than normal? Are there options for a door that’s thicker than the standard size door (up to 2″ is generally standard door thickness)? You bet there are options! Quite a few styles and designs to choose from. Which means just because your door is thick, doesn’t mean you don’t get all the options that you may get when ordering for a door that has standard thickness. The options are a little fewer as far as design goes, because not all brands will carry hardware to fit thicker doors.

Emtek offers lots of different handleset to fit doors up to:

2 5/8″ thick

2 7/8″ thick

3″ thick.

*NOTE: Please make sure to measure your door to be sure the door thickness before you order, because if your door is actually standard door thickness (1 3/4″ up to 2″ thick is standard) and you order for a door that’s over standard thickness like the 2 5/8″, 2 7/8″ and 3″ thick, it will not fit your door.

They did it again. A handleset they like to call Koln. The Sure-Loc Koln Entrance Handleset has nice straight lines and fits that modern style you may be going for. It would look awesome on a front door. BAM! That’s the sound you would hear in your head when you see it on a front door. Your eyes might get wide and  your heart may start to race a little, don’t worry it’s just excitement of how fantastic that handleset looks. Making a great first impression to your neighbors!

The Sure-Loc Koln Handleset is like I said, modern and that means that it has modern finishes! Some hardware you may find only comes in one finish, but the new Koln is available in polished chrome as well as satin stainless. Both look awesome. The interior of the handleset looks just as great as the exterior…

The interior part of the deadbolt has straight lines and a nice thick thumbturn to grip that looks stylish as well. The picture above shows the interior with the new basel lever, but you can choose from 3 different levers – The Sure-Loc Basel Lever, Juneau Lever (one of the most popular modern levers from Sure-Loc), or Torino Lever. Choose from a single cylinder handleset (like the one shown in the picture), or dummy handleset (which is a non functioning handleset that is mounted to the door, usually used on double doors where you may want both doors to look the same).

If you are looking to match this look throughout the rest of your house, check out Sure-Loc’s Basel Lever, Juneau Lever, Torino Lever,Oslo Lever, as well as the Sure-Loc Modern Square Deadbolt, and Modern Round Deadbolt.
