If you have Atrium multi point patio brand doors, but need some replacement trims you have come to the right spot!

 

Atrium multi point doors provide you the mechanism inside the door (the 3 or more points where the bolts lock your door in place), and most likely you have the hardware that came along with it. We provide replacement trim levers that will attach to your existing Atrium mechanism. This is for people that are just looking for the replacement trims though, NOT the mechanism. Maybe you wanted a new style, or maybe your existing hardware is all worn out, that’s when you can check out all the replacement trims Emtek (just look under Emtek’s multi point lock trim section) offers that should fit your Atrium doors.

 

Not all of the trims that Emtek offers will fit your Atrium Doors. That’s why we made a list of configurations (or measurements) and listed each of the door brands that fit that configuration. So basically all you need to do is find your door brand and it will give you your configuration. Atrium is under configuration 1 for example.

It’s important to make sure your existing measurements for your Atrium multi point door match up with these measurements of this configuration 1. And after you find that it does match up, you have many many back plate styles to choose from and after that you get to choose from many many levers and finishes! So pretty much what I am saying is that the list is endless and you can make your patio replacement trim totally original.

Multi point locks have 3 or more points where bolts come out to lock the door in place (which is a whole lot more secure than your basic regular deadbolt that only provides 1 bolt to lock the door in place). These locks are durable and people love how they function.

What is a Multi Point Lock?

So we kind of already talked about how to order a 3 Point Lock Trim in this post, but we can get a bit deeper. A 3 Point, also known as a Multi-point lock or Patio Lock, have 3 different bolts that come out of 3 different points of the door to lock and secure the door in place. The 3 points where each bolt will come out of the door are located on the top, the bottom and of course the bolt the comes out of the side (just like any regular deadbolt). To lock these all in place, you simply pull the lever on the door up and all the bolts are engaged and the door is secure in place.

The main goal for these Multi-Point Locks, first and foremost is the security factor. Basically it’s 3 bolts locking from top, bottom and side edge of the door, which is a whole lot more secure than a basic deadbolt that just locks from the side edge. A lot of people use these not only for how secure they are, but also how stylish and how they function is a big plus for some. If you lock the door from the inside and go outside, when the door is shut, the lever is locked. This feature is really nice for some people, because you don’t have to take that step to lock the deadbolt behind you if you need to make a quick run. Don’t forget your keys though. The option if you don’t want the lever to stay locked would be to unlock the inside button and it will release the lock. There are several functions like, keyed, non-keyed passage, non-keyed/thumbturn inside, non-keyed/fixed out/operable in, and dummy.

Now, what you will find on our site are the trims only, which include the backplate and levers that connect to the mechanism. We do not carry the mechanism. Usually the mechanism comes with the door you order, and it’s already put together and ready for you. We give a variety of trims that you can choose from which makes it fun and easy to find the style that fits you and your home.
