The new Kaba Simplex® 5000 has been designed for the simplest installation possible. The lock is shipped preassembled as two fully contained front and rear housings. It's non-handed, and the lever hand can be changed in seconds. It installs easily on wood or metal doors from 1 3/8' to 2 1/4' in thickness, or 35mm to 57mm. In addition, it fits standard 161 Cylindrical Lock door prep with only minor modifications; retrofits cylindrical locksets with 2 3/4' (70mm) backset; and covers existing Kaba Ilco 1000, L1000 and PowerLever installations.
Since it features a direct-drive design, there is no need for a clutch mechanism. This decreases the possibility of internal breakage and the subsequent linkage repairs. And with a fully independent lever, there's less chance of damage from abuse. Using the Simplex 5000 couldn't be easier. You just punch in the correct code and press 'ENTER.' The ADA-compliant lever requires only a 45-degree turn in either direction. The code that opens the door can be easily changed to one of thousands of possible combinations, without removing the lock-eliminating the cost of cutting new keys. And since it is mechanical, there are no batteries to maintain or replace.
