The Simplex push-button lock series from dormakaba provides superior access control without the need for cables, software, or batteries. While in the industry for many years, Simplex locks still eliminate the problems associated with issuing, handling, controlling, and safeguarding keys and cards. Combinations can be changed quickly and easily by authorized individuals to provide maximum security after employees, managers or visitors leave a designated area

Simplex 1000/L1000 Series

These locks allow users to gain entry from the outside using a combination. They can exit by simply turning a knob/lever. The Simplex 1000/L1000 Series is the best option for limiting access to sensitive or crowded areas in the institutional, residential, and industrial sectors. It is ideal for locations with high people flow such as data centers, employee entrances, research and development labs, residential apartments, dorms, and restricted areas in hospitals and airports where an audit trail is not required.

Key features include:

  • Simple operation. Press buttons in the correct sequence and turn the knob/lever to retract the latch bolt.
  • Thousands of possible combinations. Authorized individuals can use one to five buttons individually in the combination or by pressing two or more buttons simultaneously.

Optional Features include:
