Zoo Hardware Bathroom Hex Locks

June 1, 2023

Zoo Hardware has introduced a new bathroom lock accessory in response to the UK Department for Education’s Technical Annex 2D: Internal Elements and Finishes Part 5.2.2. The Hex release options of bathroom turns have been introduced to meet the requirements of the document in relation to bathroom locks being used in schools that need to be locked from the inside by turn or lever, and released from the outside by a hexagon or star profile key, therefore excluding more traditional designs such as coin slot or square drive type releases.

Available in standard or accessible thumb turn configurations, the Hex bathroom turn and release are manufactured from grade 304 Stainless Steel and are supplied on an 8mm rose base with the rose cover options of screw-on or push-on. 

Zoo Hardware has also introduced a separate dedicated Hex release key, which by design also offers a 5mm square drive that can be used in extreme emergency where the external release parts could be removed from the door and the key can be used to drive a 5mm Follower to allow retraction of the bathroom deadbolt.

Jason Tonks Reg AI, Technical Product Manager at Zoo Hardware, said: “Following the last update of Technical Annex 2D by the Department for Education, we have introduced our new thumb turn and hex release to continue supporting our customers in achieving the highest standards of compliance for all sectors.

“As a UK market leading supplier of architectural ironmongery, we are committed to the continuous development of products that not only meet legislative and standard based updates but also meet our customers’ expectations with regards to performance, quality and aesthetics at a competitive price and our new bathroom turn and hex release is another example of that.”

The range includes:

  • The ZCS004iSS–HEX Standard Turn-Push on rose
  • ZCS006iSS-HEX Accessible Turn-Push on rose
  • ZPS004-iSS-HEX Standard Turn-Screw on Rose
