Wherever safety is a main concern, there is always one name brand you can trust when it comes to quality gate hardware. D&D Technologies is a recognized leader in the safety and general-purpose gate hardware industry. Since the late 1980s, D&D has been committed to designing and manufacturing top-quality hinges and locks for commercial and residential customers alike. Here at HardwareSource, we proudly offer an assortment of D&D hardware that can help you make your gate at home more safe and secure. Whether you are searching for a key-lockable or non-lockable solution, we have all your needs covered in one convenient place.
We know how difficult it can be to keep an eye on the kids all the time. Our D&D Technologies collection features the ground-breaking MagnaLatch magnetic latch for swimming pool and other child safety gates, so you can have some peace of mind while enjoying the day. Our choices include side pull, top pull, and vertical pull, to ensure that you find the best solution. Both top pull and vertical pull latches are ideal for shorter gates whereas side pull latches are great for general use on gates around the house or garden. With a properly aligned gate and fence, the powerful magnetic action of the MagnaLatch will cause the gate to lock on its own when it closes.
Our selection of D&D hardware would be remiss without the LokkLatch magnetic gate lock. This intuitive lock is made of the most durable materials and finishes that resist the harsh effects of both time and the elements. Whether you prefer the locks to be keyed alike or differently, we can help you secure the perfect solution for your home's safekeeping.
Your garden gate is also your home's first line of defense against potential break-ins, but good security measures can deter burglars. Safety gate hinges will restrict your gate from swinging open any more than 90 degrees in one direction, but non-safety gate hinges will allow your gate to swing open up to 180 degrees in one direction. We keep our selection stocked with bolt-on and weld-on hinges as well as round post spring, free-swinging, adjustable spring, and ornamental tee hinges, including self-closing and non-self-closing versions. With your choice of ReadyFit, SureClose, TrueClose, and KwikFit, you really can't go wrong.
From regular to heavy-duty gates, you are sure to find the right solution for your swimming pool or garden here. Please let us know if you have any questions about D&D Technologies or would like help finding a specific product.
Single Acting: Single acting hinges swing in one direction. Double Acting: Double acting hinges swing in both directions.
Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors. Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
The center to center is the distance from the center of one screw hole to another. Most manufacturers use this measurement to identify the size of the pull.
