Access Control Simplified: Simplex® 5000 Series Mechanical Pushbutton Locks

The mechanical pushbutton lock provides proven convenience for applications where a single lock entry code satisfies the access control requirements of the end user. Using a mechanical pushbutton lock eliminates keys, cards, batteries and computers.

Simplex 5000 Series Mechanical Pushbutton locks meet or exceed ANSI/BHMA 156.2 (Cylindrical Lock) and 156.13 (Exit Device Trim), Grade 1 Certification. The lever equipped locks conform to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the California State Reference Code for levers returning to within 1/2” of door surface. Cylindrical latch models have a 3-hour UL/ULC fire rating on “A” labeled doors.

Weather-resistant Simplex 5000 Series Locks have a five-button keypad which operates the Simplex “chamber”, a one-inch square by five-inch long mechanism that has been providing keyless mechanical access control for more than 50 years. In addition to securing commercial doors, Simplex Locks provide security and restrict access for a number of applications including residential deadbolts, cabinet locks and gun safes.

The single lock entry code eliminates the need for keys, batteries, hardwiring, software and cards. The code is programmed at the keypad without having to remove or disassemble the Simplex 5000. Department of Defense (D.O.D.) compliant locks have interior combination changes. The lock entry code is changeable and requires only a few minutes.

Simplex 5000 Series locks can have from a one- to five-digit combination using the five buttons. The five buttons can be pushed individually, or two or more buttons can be pushed simultaneously, creating multiple combinations. Each button can only be pushed only once. Over 1,000 combinations are possible.

To operate the Simplex 5000 Series lock, depress the lever or rotate the knob to reset the chamber. Enter the combination using the buttons of the keypad. Each time a button is pressed, it should click. Once the combination has been entered, press the ENTER button. Rotate the outside lever or knob, retracting the latch bolt or exit device latch.

The 5000 Series is equipped with an override cylinder. The keying options include key-in-lever cylinder, small format interchangeable core, and large format removable core. The lever and knob configured locks can be configured for small and large format cores. Key-in-lever models include an Ilco 1599, six pin cylinder and multiple tailpieces to accommodate other similar size/style cylinders. SFIC and large format cores are not included. They are available separately.

The Simplex 5000 Series locks are available as cylindrical and mortise locks, and exit device trim. Locks are pre-configured for lefthand door installation. They are field-reversible for righthand door installations without additional components. Locks include mounting hardware to accommodate door thicknesses of 1 3/8”-2 ¼” in each box.
