We have thrown light on the types of restroom locks, so you would be able to consider what particular type of lock is suitable for you.
The first type is a keypad lock and we also might call it one of “public restroom door locks”.
This kind of a privacy door lock
usually installed in some public places or at school to prevent from not permitted users. Staff members have a unique code by which the door is unlocked.
The next type of locks is quite affordable but they stay alive for a very short time.
These are simple slide or thumb turn locks. With a slide lock, the door is closing by inserting a slide bar into the latch. Thumbturn is even more simple in usage, it doesn’t have a latch itself, there is a hole in the door frame instead.
Another one is a deadbolt.
Here, a lock is separated from the handle. In order to open the door, a thumbturn mechanism is used. This type of bathroom door locks is related to the indicators lock family.
The last but the most convenient is an Indicator lock.
There is a new type of indicators lock, which shows you a sign “occupied/unoccupied”. The restroom indicator lock is a great decision in terms of a sense of privacy. So how it works?
- There is an indicator installed in the handle with the sign “occupied or unoccupied”. By using the lock you going to have a huge number of advantages. Firstly the restroom indicator lock is durable because it has a “restroom occupied indicator” - a person from outside the room notices the sign and do not pull the door in order to test. Secondly, some suppliers also produce “restroom occupied lock
” which is quite simple to install. Thirdly, a design can vary, so you can choose the one you consider will complement your interior.
