Product details

Secure and convenient

The SVA 5000 & SVI 5000 self-locking emergency escape solution is particularly suitable as a mechanical user solution for double-leaf apartment or house doors, as well as project build doors, whose status does not need to be monitored. Thanks to the emergency escape function, the door can be readily opened by simply operating the lever handle, while the automatic relocking mechanism ensures secure lock re-engagement once the door has closed.

Operational versatility

SVA active door leaf locks are available in different models suitable for over-rebated or flush-closing timber doors and also narrow stile doors. They are flexible in terms of their installation position thanks to the non-handed DIN universal trip latch. They have been approved as emergency exit locks for doors in escape routes and for use on fire and smoke check doors.

As the lock is purely mechanical, no complex wiring on the door is required.
