Hello all -
I'm going to replace a front entry door before too much longer, trying
to decide on good (not cheap) door hardware and locks.
I'll probably choose between Schlage, Baldwin and Emtek hardware.
I realize the locksets sold by Lowe's and Home Depot box-stores are at
the low end of the product line.
Do the companies above market a "higher-grade residential" product line?
If so, where can I buy them?
Just locksmith shops?
What I'm looking for specifically:
- single deadbolt
- lever (with key outside)
Both keyed alike.
What I'd REALLY like is Abloy Protec cylinders inside, BUT -- I've seen
NO residentially-styled door hardware with internal locks of this quality.
Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places.
Securitysnobs.com sells Abloy deadbolts and leversets, but the
utilitarian styling is more suited to an industrial park.
There must be SOMEBODY that sells residential-styled hardware with
Or does one have to have stuff like that custom-assembled?
