We have a security door in my office with keyed lever on both sides. Door is activated remotely by staff pressing a button to unlock the door. Visitors walking in just need to PUSH the door open, but because there is a lever they constantly try to turn the handle, which doesn’t do anything. They get very confused and, for some reason, angry.
I’d like to replace that keyed lever with just a deadbolt cylinder housing since staff still need to enter the premises through that door using the keyed lock. No more handle, no more problem. I’d then put up a push plate.
I’ve searched for a set like this (keyed lever one side, cylinder housing the other) and can’t find any. Is this possible to do with the existing hardware and any cylinder housing? Is there specific replacement set I can purchase and install using the existing cylinders?
