Types of door locks and hardware for residential and commercial

Locks – Deadbolts are so called because they are operated manually. Cylindrical locks (entry locksets) consist of two doorknobs operable both from the inside and the outside. Mortise locks, recessed rectangular boxes, combine deadbolt action with a pin-locking cylinder mechanism; they are most frequently used on front entry doors.

Knobs & Levers – Door knobs and levers come in a wide variety of styles and materials. Types of knobs and levers include keyed, privacy, passage, and dummy.

Handlesets – Handlesets combine a grip (handle) and a single- or double-cylinder deadbolt. Available in many styles and materials, handlesets come in one-piece, two-piece, full plate, and electronic units.

Hinges – Butt hinges are the most common type of door hinge; the two sections are connected either by a metal rod or by ball bearings. Flush, concealed, piano, and spring hinges are also available.

Door Accessories- Doorbells, knockers, viewers, stops, kickplates, and bumpers can add functionality to doors while enhancing aesthetic appeal.

Commercial – Commercial door hardware is often designed for more heavy-duty use than residential door hardware. Ring’s End has decades of experience supplying the durable, attractive hardware for commercial construction projects.
