Different Types of Door Latches
Roller Latches: A type of door latching mechanism that is commonly used on interior doors that experience high traffic or use and wherever quiet operation is desired. A roller latch features a roller under spring tension, which engages a strike plate that has a recess to receive it, causing the roller to fall into the depression of the strike. This mechanism is used to hold a door closed. We carry both adjustable and heavy-duty roller latches in several finishes, including satin nickel, antique brass, polished brass, and oil-rubbed bronze. Baldwin's roller latch is designed to ANSI specifications.
Touch Latches: A type of door latching mechanism that allows doors to open and close with just a gentle push. Once pushed, the door releases from the latch and pops outward. A touch latch is invisible from the outside of the door and requires no other hardware. We offer both regular duty and heavy-duty touch latches. A heavy-duty touch latch is slightly larger and has a much stronger spring action, which is ideal for solid core or heavy doors. Wherever a vacuum condition exists or if the door does not open easily, you may need to purchase an auxiliary push to aid in operation.
In addition to door latches, we also offer door catches and strike plates that are made to hold full-size doors. When it comes to a set of double doors, the door that is generally inactive is typically held closed using a flush bolt at the top and bottom. This type of door bolt latch is mortised into the edge of the door for a seamless installation. We offer a number of residential flush bolts in an array of finishes and sizes, so you are sure to find a solution for your doors. Are you looking to add some extra security to your doors? We offer heavy-duty surface bolts, which are held in place with a ball bearing system that prevents the barrel of the bolt from getting scratched or rattling.
