Patent-pending invention installs a lock inside the door jamb instead of on the door itself

INOX debuts its industry-exclusive Barn Door Lock, which is a patent-pending, sophisticated yet discreet integrated locking solution. Shown in Graphite Black.

Barn doors are used throughout the interior design industry due to their ability to save space by sliding along the wall instead of swinging into the floorplan, which opens up more usable square footage. However, the lock options are often hooks, chains or other bulky hardware that are added as a gaudy afterthought. INOX®, creator of innovative and premium decorative hardware and door locks for more than 25 years, debuts a patent-pending Barn Door Lock—a sophisticated yet discreet integrated locking solution for designers, architects and homeowners to secure the door for added privacy.

“Barn doors remain a strong trend given their Old World charm, variety of design styles and space-saving efficiency, yet we found that there wasn’t a true locking mechanism that could offer seamless design as well as reliable privacy,” said Jeff Howes, President of INOX. “We responded to this market need by inventing our industry-exclusive Barn Door Lock. Architects, designers and homeowners can finally add a lock to their barn door that guarantees both superior privacy and a beautiful design aesthetic.”

The Barn Door Lock’s bolt is installed inside the door jamb (instead of the traditional practice of adding a lock on the door itself) and slides securely into the door’s strike. The locking mechanism features a one-inch bolt that is easily activated by a thumb turn and can be locked securely from inside the room; a variety of attractive thumb turns are available, including ADA options. The strike, mounted on the door, features a discreet spring-loaded dust cover with a decorative cap on the opposite side of the door. A safety release allows the lock to be disengaged from the outside in case of an emergency.

Six designer finishes provide both aesthetic and practical options that complement any design space, including: Bright Stainless Steel, Satin Stainless Steel, Satin Brass, Satin Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze and Graphite Black.
