Blumcraft center housings are adaptable to most door series. CH-800 center lock housings are designed to receive mortise latchlocks, mortise deadlocks or combination latchlock/deadbolts manufactured by Russwin/Corbin, Schlage, Sargent or Best. (Others upon request.)
Mortise locks come in a variety of functions such as classroom, entrance, office, apartment, and others. These locks can be operated by levers, cylinders, or thumbturns. A hold-back feature is optional. Pull handles are available.
To specify center housings, choose a lock manufacturer, lock function, lever or pull handle, finish, and whether electric strikes are required.
CH-800 and CH-802 strike housings are prepared to accept the specified latchbolt or deadbolt. Strike housings can receive Folger Adam 310-1 electric strikes. A raceway connects the center housing and door or sidelight rail to carry wiring to a control station or card reader.
CH-801 full width strike housings are similar to CH-800 and CH-802 but are only mounted to sidelights. These housings internally carry wiring to a control station or card reader for electric strike applications, eliminating the need for vertical raceways.
CH-850 center housings are available with #7385-L deadlocks only. CH-851 center strike housings are available to match the lock housing.
Mortise locks are generally supplied in satin or polished architectural bronze or stainless steel. Statuary bronze is also available.
If center lock and strike housings are applied to a pair of doors, then one door becomes active. For security, the inactive door must be deadlocked. It is suggested that the doors be independently operated. Use of Blumcraft panic and deadbolt hardware provides this convenience. This hardware has Underwriters Laboratories approval and is in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Rail Dead Deadlocks
The 7385 rail deadlock has a 5/8" diameter drop bolt with a 3/4" throw that can engage into a strike plate, threshold, or dust-proof strike. This lock can be mounted in the Blumcraft 640C door and most tempered glass doors. Standard mortise key cylinders are held in position with set screws that are accessible from the end of the door rail.
The 7385L rail deadlock is the same as the standard 7385 except that it has a full 1-1/4" throw. The additional engagement can accommodate clearances up to 11/16" or special floor conditions.
The 7350 rolling lock is a deadlock with a cylindrically shaped bolt that rolls rather than slides. Rolling reduces the contact area surrounding the bolt and the possibility of freezing in an open or closed position. When locked, the bolt becomes very difficult to damage because it revolves on its own axis. Ball bearings smooth out the operation of all stainless steel moving parts. Six pin mortise cylinders are standard and can be keyed alike or keyed separately.
