PalmSHIELD now incorporating Locinox Mortise locks

PalmSHIELD is excited to announce that we are now incorporating the Locinox Mortise lock into all of our PalmSHIELD gates with lockable drop rods. These industrial and polished locksets include a keyable cylinder and auto-latching mechanism. PalmSHIELD’s signature gate design is a 4” wide gate frame for louvered gates. This requires a unique locking mechanism that can accommodate a much wider door.

Keyable for Maximum Efficiency

Our previous locking mechanism was exceptional and provided a real professional look and feel. However, it was not re-keyable. The Locinox lockset provides a common keyable cylinder, auto latch bolt and a very stout hook latch.

The look will be offered in a brushed aluminum and stainless-steel finishes to complement our aluminum gate series. PalmSHIELD is the only louvered and architectural screen and fence system with this level of professional locks offered standard on all gates.
