The lock installs in a standard mortise prep with only two additional holes required and can be used on a variety of opening types.

BHW trim is available in two stainless steel finishes and can also be ordered with Corbin Russwin’s MicroShield® anti-microbial coating. The ML2000 lock is UL-listed for use with fire-rated doors and is ADA-compliant. An optional matching thumb turn is also available.
