When you need to replace an existing notched-style lock and get up to code on ADA accessibility the Falcon RU/RW Series is a perfect fit. Designed specifically for retrofitting older and historical buildings, this unique lock combines old-fashioned styling with modern strength, security and convenience.
 
Falcon RU/RW Series locks have an interchangeable core that can be removed for quick, easy re-keying. Our interchangeable cores are compatible with SFIC products from other manufacturers. And they’re backed by one of the best names in the business.

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 enamel 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 and 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.

The Falcon Lock RU Series accepts the following manufacturers' interchangeable cores:
  • Falcon
