Lever handles on the rose comprise the door lever and the round ‘rose’, upon which the handle is mounted and turns. Lever handles are attached to the door latch mechanism, and when the lever is pushed down, the latch is operated, allowing for the door to be opened or closed. A spring mechanism within the rose ensures that the handle returns to its original position when not in use. All lever fixings and screws are hidden behind the rose cover itself. Lever handles on rose are available in materials such as chrome, stainless steel and aluminium.

A variety of types of Door Locks
1. Knob Locks
Knob locks are the most common type of door lock and the chief method of security for most doors. The lock cylinder is located in the knob instead of the door. Thus, knob locks should not be used on external doors, as they can be broken into with basic tools like a hammer or wrench.
2. Cam Locks
Cam locks are a type of fastener that allows storage to be kept intact and do so in a latent way, so as to not affect the overall appearance. They are for the most part invisible in fully constructed cabinets. Cam locks usually come with sets of furniture and cabinet kits. These types of door locks are cylindrical and are situated in the wooden part. A metal tube with a hole in one side helps position the bolt that is inserted. Certain cam locks secure cabinet doors completely, which makes them attractive measures for keeping sensitive materials. Cam locks use various tailpieces or “cams” to create a locking mechanism.
3. Deadbolt Lock Types
Deadbolts offer the best protection against burglary or break-ins. Lock bolts are moved by turning a knob or key without the use of a spring. Deadbolts feature a unique locking mechanism that resists physical attacks, battering and boring. They cannot be opened with a knife or hand tool. Deadbolt locks come in three types: single, double and C. Single-cylinder deadbolts are the simplest ones and can be activated from one side via a key. A double-cylinder deadbolt can be used with a key from both sides. A single, double and lockable thumb-turn deadbolt features a thumb-turn inside that can be locked with a key. This type of deadbolt provides the greatest flexibility and security.
Padlocks belong in the free-standing lock group. They are portable, meaning unlike other lock types, they are not permanently attached to a door or anything that uses it. Padlocks come in a variety of models that are grouped into two main categories: keyed and combination. Keyed padlocks alone are available in different subtypes, like keyed alike, keyed different and keyable. Padlocks are easy to recognize, not merely due to their mobile nature, but also because of their looped-handle shackle shape. They contain a shouldered shackle, a part in which the padlock shoulders raise the sides of the shackle to inhibit bolt cutters from cutting through it.
5. Mortise Locks
Mortise locks are powerful locks used on external doors. However, they are available in both light and heavy-duty models. They are comprised of an internal system which makes them more locksets than just locks. These locksets can house either knobs or levers and are often comprised of a cylindrical body. They are threaded and utilize mortise components added to the door. A box lock is set within the mortise, which is a deep recess at the edge of the door. Mortise locksets stay secure by using a set screw and a cam which creates the locking mechanism. The cylinder component comes in various heights and lengths for different types of doors.
A tubular latch is an essential product for a door that you wish to open and close with a door handle or doorknob. As the name suggests, the door will just 'latch' with a tubular latch fitted, it will not lock.
Rim Locks and Latches have been used for centuries to lock and latch doors. They sit on the surface of the door rather than set into the edge of the door, traditionally because the door would not have been thick enough to take a mortice lock or latch.

A rim lock or latch requires a special type of doorknob (a "rim" knob) that you will need to purchase separately.
