WHY WOULD I NEED A LOCK BLOCK?
In addition, a solid oak lock block can be used in connection with a handle or a suffolk latch (these can be found in the hardware section of the website). Some may find that the oak lock block is needed to prevent cutting into existing architrave or door frame as much
WHAT SIZE IS THE BLOCK AVAILABLE IN?
All the lock blocks that are manufactured using European oak are supplied at 150 x 250mm x 20mm thick
WHAT TIMBER IS THE LOCK BLOCK MADE FROM?
An oak lock block is manufactured using European oak which is mainly sourced from France. The material used is made from the exact same timber as the internal oak doors.
The oak lock blocks, also known as latch blocks are manufactured on site in Sheffield. The main purpose of these items are to sit the suffolk latch onto them during the installation of your internal ledged doors.
The lock blocks work with the suffolk latches or the handles which are available on the hardware page.
The solid oak lock block is supplied loose so they can be installed on site. You can then choose the way you prefer the lock block to. You can install these by gluing/pinning or both, onto the ledged door.
Installation instructions are available on the website to help with any questions that you may have.
