5498 - 5498 latch


Latchbolt is extended to 16mm to ensure 13mm engagement in the striking plate. Lever handles droop if the latchbolts are not fully engaged in the striking plate.

Each latchbolt follower is fitted with an additional arm incorporating a stub. The stubs protrude from the side of lockcases. When the three stubs are joined together with a steel bar (not supplied by ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions) inside the door, the latches can then be operated simultaneously with a single central lever handle.

Available with 50mm backset only.
