Door Latches

Description
Description

Door Latches, also known as Door Catches, are the mechanical fasteners that join doors to another object or surface, to be closed while also allowing them to be opened when necessary. Door Latches usually engage with other hardware pieces on the matching mounting surface. Door Latches are not the same as Door or Window locks as they can be more easily opened and vary in complexity. Door Latches are often made of stainless steel, cast iron, zinc, or even plastic. The different types of Door Latches include the deadbolt latch, spring latch, draw latch, and slam hatch.

History
History

Door latches have been safeguarding our spaces for centuries. Ancient civilizations crafted basic mechanisms to secure their dwellings and protect against intruders. As time progressed, so did latch complexity. By the Middle Ages, intricate ironwork became a hallmark of these devices. The industrial revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries standardized production, leading to widespread use and varied designs. Over time, latches evolved, reflecting both the technological advancements and the changing needs of societies.

Future
Future

Door latches are getting smarter and more user-friendly. Today's latches often include tech features like Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to lock or unlock using your smartphone. Some even have built-in cameras or sensors to notify you of activity. Eco-conscious designs using sustainable materials are also making waves. In the coming years, we'll likely see latches that further integrate with home automation systems, offering enhanced security and convenience, making our homes both safer and more connected.

Common Questions
Common Questions
Why does a door latch typically fail?

A door latch can fail due to wear and tear, corrosion, or misalignment. It can also fail if the mechanism is damaged or broken. Additionally, the latch may not properly engage if the door or frame is warped or if the strike plate is not properly aligned.

Is a door latch the same as a door lock?

A door latch and a door lock are not the same thing. A door latch is a mechanism that holds the door closed, while a door lock is a mechanism that prevents the door from being opened without a key or code. A door latch can be used in conjunction with a door lock for added security. A latch can be operated by thumb turn or key and lock can be operated by key or code.

What are the parts of a door latch?

A door latch typically consists of a latch bolt, a latch plate, a strike plate, and a mechanism for activating the latch, such as a knob or lever. The latch bolt is the part that extends into the door frame to hold the door closed, the latch plate is the part that surrounds the latch bolt and helps guide it into the strike plate, and the strike plate is the part that is mounted on the door frame and receives the latch bolt.

Link Door Latch
Style and size comparison drawing of the Link Door Latch compared to other door latch designs

The design of the Link Door Latch makes it extremely modern and looks expensive. It is made of brass and the parts are round. What makes it aesthetically pleasing is the near oval nature of the lever and its thickness for a comfortable grip. It was designed by Piero Lissoni.

The Link Door Latch has a diameter of 1.85” (47 mm) and depth of 1.22” (31 mm). It is available with an optional lock indicator.

Verona S Door Latch
Comparison drawing of the Verona S Door Latch compared to similar door latch sizes and shapes

The Verona S Door Latch is easily identified by the lack of parts/rosette. This gives it a small profile. As a result, it takes little space in the door. Even so, its important feature is the ergonomic lever that is also pleasing to touch. It is made of brass.

The Verona S Door Latch has a diameter of .91” (23 mm) and depth of .98” (25 mm).

Link Q Door Latch
Comparison drawing of the Link Q Door Latch compared to similar door latch sizes and shapes

The Link Q Door Latch has square parts/profile. It was designed by Piero Lissoni and made of brass like other Link Door Latches. However, the lever is a little small compared to the others in the same category. But still, it retains the same properties of straight lines and smooth curves.

The Link Q Door Latch has a height of 1.85” (47 mm), width of 1.85” (47 mm), and depth of 1.22” (31 mm). It is available with an optional lock indicator.

The design of the Venezia Door Latch makes it an eye-catcher, and the way the lever is attached to the rosette makes it very expensive and pleasing to touch. It is made of nylon and the parts are round. Another important feature is its perfect size, which makes it ideal for most doors.

The Venezia Door Latch has a diameter of 1.97” (50 mm) and depth of 1.22” (31 mm).

Space Q Door Latch (ADA)
Style and size comparison drawing of the Space Q Door Latch (ADA) compared to other door latch designs

The Space Q Door Latch (ADA) shares a lot of similarities with the Space Q Door Latch, like large square parts and sharp clean lines. However, the lever is a little larger, such that it overlaps over the parts. It is made of brass.

The Space Q Door Latch (ADA) has an overall height of 2.36” (60 mm), width of 1.85” (47 mm), and depth of 1.22” (31 mm). It is available with an optional lock indicator.
