Abrasive Strip Levers
All levers are available with an abrasive strip along the inside length of the lever to identify entrances that may be hazardous to the handicapped. To order, change trim designation to: 6DA (DANE) or 6QU (QUANTUM) in trim section of order. Not vailable on 613 finish as abrasive strip will not hold.

Finishes
The latest in modern techniques and equipment are used to apply the highest quality finish. Extra steps assure durable, consistent finishes and long useful life.

Although we apply the finest available protective plating and/or clear-coat powder coating to the surface of our products, these finishes have limitations and in time may deteriorate either from exposure to weather, pollution, perspiration, extremes of climate, frequency of use or other factors. Deterioration of these finishes is, therefore, not a defect, but a normal process which is unavoidable. Our company cannot accept responsibility for finish deterioration in these circumstances; therefore, the finishes cannot be guaranteed. These products will not be refinished or replaced under our warranty should deterioration of finishes occur.

Interchangeable Core (IC) Cylinders (Full Size and Small Format)
For use where fast rekeying by non-technical personnel is desired, conventional interchangeable cores offer a great blend of security and convenience. The special control key for the system is all you need to remove the old core and install a new one. The core itself can be rekeyed with standard Schlage pin kits. Unlike some other brands, Schlage interchangeable cores can always be integrated into existing systems with no adverse effect on the key system. IC locks are especially well-suited to chain stores and restaurants where frequent employee turnover requires immediate rekeying by store management. Use IC cylinders to save time and energy when changing labor-intensive locks on exit devices and other door hardware.

Construction Keying
Falcon offers two different construction key systems depending on the size of and application within the project. Both systems permit the installation and use of regular door locks during construction, yet completely preserve the security of the keying system for the ultimate building owner. The Master, Grand Master and change keys are never with the locks during the construction phase of a building. Only the “construction” keys are sent to the job site. Where the job permits, we will utilize the “Lost Pin System” as our standard system for construction keying. Larger or more complicated jobs may require the use of our “Blockokey® System” for construction keying.

“Disposable Construction” Interchangeable Cores
This newly designed disposable construction core (1408) is an inexpensive alternative to interior keyed construction cores. This core should be used on interior door applications or where security on a site is not a concern. No keys need to be issued. The disposable core is inserted in the lever or knob and is operated by a thumb turn, which retracts the latch bolt. Please use either brass or permanent construction cores on exterior doors or secured areas.

Locks with ”Lost Pin System”
Our “lost” pin construction key system consists of one construction pin and a shallow hole in the side of the plug.

Construction Key—KB566
When the “construction” key is used, the construction pin is always in the cylinder plug, sitting on top of the bottom pin. consists of one construction pin and a shallow hole in the side of the plug.

Master Key—KB578
When the Master key is inserted, the construction pin is pushed up into the cylinder housing. As the Master key is rotated to the right, the construction pin will drop into the hole in the plug, thereby eliminating any future use of the construction key.

Locks with Blockokey® Cylinders
All lock cylinders on a specific project are operable by a special “project key.” Duplicates of this key may be assigned by the building contractor to workmen and subcontractors as required. No regular change keys or Master keys are needed on the job. This eliminates the possibility of subsequent exposure from lost or stolen keys.

How Locks with Blockokey® Cylinders are Used
Project Key—KB531
Lock cylinder is operated by the special ”project key.” The last two pins in the cylinder are held inoperative by the key block.

Removal Tool—KB536
The special ”project key” is canceled out by removal of the key block. A key block removal tool is furnished with the Master keys for the locks. Simply push the removal tool into the keyway, then withdraw it to remove the block. Thereafter, the ”project key” will no longer operate the lock cylinder.

Change or Master Key—KB578
Cylinder is now only operable by the regular change key or Master key.
Strikes
Normally furnished with a 4 7/8” ANSI strike unless specified otherwise.
