In response to a noticeable gap in the marketplace, Lake Forest, Calif.-based Kwikset launched an Austin product family, described as a rustic option for traditional and modern homes.
The Austin line includes a stylish handleset, lever and deadbolt with a decorative swing cover. The new products embrace the aesthetic of transitional décor and provide sophisticated security features.
“Kwikset is thrilled to offer a rustic collection that is as secure as it is stylish,” said Krista Weigand, senior product manager, Kwikset. “Rustic design is part of American design tradition. We decided it was time to offer a new family of products that reflected this slightly more rugged, yet versatile aesthetic.”
Austin products come in two finishes -- Venetian Bronze and Satin Nickel. The Austin line is simple to install and will be available in August at a number of home improvement retailers.
Additionally, Austin keyed entry products are equipped with Kwikset SmartKey Re-key Technology, which allows homeowners to re-key their locks in seconds, without removing the lock from the door. SmartKey locks are incredibly secure and have passed the most stringent lock picking standards. Additionally, the patented BumpGuard technology provides superior protection against lock bumping. Austin products come with a lifetime warranty ensuring your home will be safe and secure indefinitely.
