Schlage Locks: Setting the Industry Standard

Residential and Commercial Security

The A-Series: Schlage’s “Cornerstone”

The Schlage Company considers its A-Series of standard/medium duty cylindrical locks to be its “cornerstone” product.  Throughout the decades it has been one of the company’s top-selling mechanical lock products.

The Schlage A-Series has applications in both the commercial and the residential market.  It is considered medium to heavy duty when used in a residential setting. The series is classified as standard duty when applied to a commercial setting.

The Schlage A-Series of cylindrical locks is manufactured in both lever and knob style handles.  Residential users tend to gravitate toward the knob-style.  The knob is also popular in commercial buildings, but commercial buildings may just as frequently install the lever style.  Both provide equally effective performance and durability.

This “cornerstone” product has a number of desirable features both for residential and commercial building, including:

  • High strength steel: This ensures durability, and helps to prevent tampering and breaking through the use of force.
  • Plating: The steel components are plated for corrosion resistance. It resists damage from scratching, denting and soiling.
  • Versatile finishes: The visible components and the knob/levers are available in a variety of  popular finishes, making it easy to match the A-series with any decor.
  • Meets ANSI requirements.
  • Rated Grade 2 commercial.
  • UL listed for three hour fire doors.

The Schlage A-Series of locks has been around since 1925.  This is nearly as long as cylindrical locks themselves have been around.  The fact that it continues to outsell all other major brands in its class is a testament to the reliability of Schlage’s products in general, and the A-Series in particular.  It’s possibilities in both the commercial and residential market are abundant.  Backed by Schlage’s performance guarantee, it will likely continue to be a top-seller for decades to come.
