Door hardware & replacement partsWe sell door hardware and replacement parts and have them listed in several categories. There are four main categories when shopping for parts. Do you need to hang the door, secure the door, control the door or protect the door. If you are hanging the door typically hinges are used to hang the door. There are a few basic types. Five-knuckle or three-knuckle are the common choices. Continuous hinges run the entire length of the door and are often used on exterior doors. It is important to consider the door width, thickness, weight, and clearance when choosing a hinge. Pivots reduce stress on the frame by distributing the door weight throughout the floor and structure. Pivots are used when the door is heavy, design requires pivots, or it is an aesthetic preference.
Wide throw door hingesThese hinges are used when extra clearance is needed behind a door. These are commonly utilized when a door needs to open 180 degrees and sit parallel with the wall, held open on a magnetic holder. Swing clear hinges are used to swing the door out of the clear opening of the frame when the door is open approximately 90 to 95 degrees. Swing clear hinges are most commonly used in hospitals. Raised barrel hinges use the barrel to offset to one side instead of centered between the hinge leaves. This type of hinge is fairly rare, but it is used when the barrel of a standard hinge would interfere with a special frame condition or trim.
Hardware to secure a doorUnderstanding how to secure openings is an important step as locking hardware and functions sometimes have as many as 50 functions in a catalog. It is helpful to start with the following six basic functions that account for the vast majority of locks specified. Passage sets are used where doors do not need to lock. A latch bolt can be operated by a lever from either side at all times. Privacy sets are used for spaces like restrooms or dressing rooms. They can be locked from the inside with a thumb turn or with a push button/turn for privacy, and they are typically unlocked from the outside using a tool rather than a key. There are several variations. Storeroom locks are used when the outside lever should be locked at all times. A key is used to retract the latch bolt and open the door; when the key is removed the door is locked on the outside. Entrance and office locks may be controlled by a key in the outside cylinder or by a thumb turn or push button/turn on the inside. The outside lever may be left in a locked or unlocked position.
Mechanical door locksMechanical locks offer tubular, cylindrical, mortise, deadbolt, and interconnected types of mechanical locks. Tubular locks have a center spindle assembly extending through the center of the lock body and latch, allowing for retraction of the latch when the lever or knob is rotated. While this type of lock is very common on interior doors and in residential applications, they are considered the least secure lock type. Cylindrical locks are sturdier and considered more secure than tubular locks. The latch bolt assembly interlocks with one side of the lock chassis, making it easier to install, replace, and rekey. Cylindrical locks are also available in different formats that provide various levels of security, all of which use the same type of key. Mortise locks are stronger and heavier than cylindrical locks, making them ideal for use in hospitals and schools. They require a pocket and the mortise to be cut into the door where the lock is fitted. Mortise locks also provide a wide variety of choices for function, trim, key systems, and finishes. An interconnected lock comprises two locks that are connected together, so operating the lever handle will retract both the latch bolt and deadbolt simultaneously. The latch set is either a cylindrical or tubular lock with a deadbolt above it. These locks are most commonly employed on dwelling unit entrance doors in multifamily buildings. Deadbolts are available with a single or double cylinder. The single-cylinder deadbolt operates by a key on the outside and a thumb turn on the inside. A double-cylinder deadbolt requires a key for unlocking on both sides of the door and cannot be used on doors required for egress, except in limited locations where specifically allowed by the adopted codes. In these cases, all criteria stated in the adopted code must be met.
Electronic door locksAn electronic lock is controlled by a reader, such as a keypad, card reader, or biometric terminal. There are two main types of electronic locks. Standalone electronic locks employ the same credential as networked locks. However, they are not connected to access control software, so they require the user to physically go to each lock to administer access rights and retrieve tracking information. Networked electronic locks are connected to an access control system. They allow the system manager to easily change access rights and track movement throughout the entire facility from anywhere they are connected to the network. An electromechanical lock is an electrified lockset that can be controlled by a card reader, remote release, or other access control device. Most electromechanical locksets allow free egress at all times.
Electromagnetic door locksAn electromagnetic lock is an electromagnet that mounts on the frame, with a steel armature mounted on the door. When power is applied to the magnet, it bonds to the armature, securing the door. Electromagnetic locks are only available in fail-safe mode. They unlock when power is removed. An electric strike replaces the regular strike for a lockset or panic hardware. It is used as part of an access control system to provide added security and convenience such as traffic control and remote release. An electric strike is typically paired with a storeroom function lockset or panic hardware, so access is controlled by the electric strike but egress is unaffected.
Protect the doorMany products are available to protect the door, an important step in the specification process is identifying what you are currently using or replacing. Protection plates, including mop plates, kick plates, stretcher plates, and armor plates, are used to protect a door from wear and tear. In institutional or high abuse and high use applications, it is best to specify the proper plates to help prevent damage. Door stops prevent doors from coming into direct contact with walls or other adjacent surfaces. Common stops include wall stops, floor stops, and overhead stops. Overhead stops and holders should be used in locations where wall stops and floor stops are unsuitable. Some door closers are available with built-in stops, which work well for some applications, but the backcheck feature of a door closer is not a substitute for an auxiliary stop. Gasketing and thresholds may be used to restrict airflow, smoke infiltration, sound, light, and temperature. Gasketing is installed at the head and jambs of the door opening. Thresholds and sweeps are installed at the bottom of the door.
