INOX debuts industry’s first mortise lock for sliding doors
with single-action emergency egress
New PD95 advances safety and security for
sliding doors

SACRAMENTO,
CA
INOX®creator
of innovative and premium decorative hardware and door locks for more than 25
years—introduces the PD95 mortise lock for sliding doors with a locking entry
function that provides a quick emergency exit to help meet code compliance. INOX
is the only door hardware company in the industry to offer a mortise lock with single-action
emergency egress for sliding doors.

“We noticed a deficit in the market
where hardware companies did not offer a sufficient mortise lock option for
spec writers needing an emergency egress feature on sliding doors, so our
in-house engineers developed the PD95,” said Jeff Howes, President of INOX. “This
is particularly useful in hospitality and commercial office spaces or even
schools and senior living facilities where you may need that auto-lock feature
while meeting ADA compliance.”

The PD95’s unique design features a
solid brass deadbolt with a one-inch throw, self-retracting hook with a
non-marring latch bolt, 2mm thick faceplate in either stainless steel or brass,
and trim-locking device for emergency egress. This means that the deadbolt automatically
releases with a push of the inner handle in case of emergencies, and the ADA
thumb turn helps meet code compliance for residential and commercial projects
such as entryways, patios and classrooms.

For interior doors, the optional coin
release helps further ADA compliance and offers an additional safety feature;
in an emergency where the occupant is unable to access the handle from the
inside, the door can be easily opened from the exterior without a key.

Optional finishes include Satin
Stainless Steel, Bright Stainless Steel
and
CeraMax™ ceramic-coated
options in Graphite Black, Stormy Grey, Dark Bronze, Glacier White and Flat
Black.
