Our clients range from hotels and motels to dormitories, hosipital and other facilities. When we are performing a specification analysis with our clients, not everyone understands the different types of locks. We often hear "Well, what’s the difference? As a general response – there is a HUGE difference between a mortise lock and a cylindrical lock.
A cylindrical lock is designed to be installed through the door with a knob or lever on either side that retract the latch when turned or depressed.
The major advantage of a cylindrical lock is its relatively quick installation. Two holes are drilled into the door, one through the face of the door for the lock chassis and the other through the strike edge of the door for the latchbolt.

A mortise lock is one that requires a pocket to be cut into the door where the lock is to be fitted and is common in commercial construction.
Mortise locks are more durable due to the bigger bolts. The deadbolt is incorporated into the lock body, which makes it more secure, and it allows for the added benefit of releasing both the latch and the deadbolt when you turn the lever.
