Need help with a potential project/trying to figure out possible headaches/guide client in correct direction.
40 unit condo building (old building, not a new build) is looking to upgrade/modernize/uniform their condo doors. The units are all either:
Schlage K series mortise
Schlage G lock
Schlage H lock
Of course they hired a designer who is telling them to go with Schlage L. For the doors that have Schlage K series, I see no problem as we do this work enough. My main concerns are what route I can take the G and H locks. Condos here are required to have fire rated doors, so my question is.. can you even convert G/H locks to mortise? And, won’t that void the fire rating of the doors?
If it will either not be able to converted or it will void rating, what other options can I present to them hardware wise for uniformity that will not require new doors.
Any help is appreciated.
