Added security: Privacy barn door lock by INOX

INOX, creator of decorative hardware and door locks for more than 25 years, has launched the Privacy barn door lock.

This door lock’s bolt is installed inside the door jamb (instead of the traditional practice of adding a lock on the door itself) and slides securely into the door’s strike.

The locking mechanism features a one-inch bolt that is activated by a thumb turn and can be locked securely from inside the room; a variety of thumb turns are available, including ADA options.

The strike, mounted on the door, features a spring-loaded dust cover with a decorative cap on the opposite side of the door. A safety release allows the lock to be disengaged from the outside in case of an emergency.

There are six designer finishes available, including: bright stainless steel, satin stainless steel, satin brass, satin chrome, oil rubbed bronze and graphite black.
