CISA locks have been the lock of choice for communal doors since the late 1970’s
Designed and constructed in Italy these ultra-robust locks are the Locksmiths go-to-product.
With a built-in solenoid they connect to many intercom systems for keyless opening.
CISA make 100’s of different locks but this model is by far the most common option found on a wooden door.
These locks are handed left or right – please study the images before ordering.
Also look out for inward-opening (99% of all UK doors) or the much rarer outward-opening doors, again please study the product images before ordering.
Predominantly in use in communal hallways they really aren’t designed to be looked at.
The main body is a silver painted finish and often they arrive from CISA with minor nicks and bumps in the paint, sometimes several.
Unfortunately these described nicks and bumps will not give rise to a reason to return the lock so please be aware.
