Latches are used solely for the purpose of keeping doors closed. A latch slots into the ‘keep’ on the door frame and is released when door knobs or door handles are turned. Latches come in a range of sizes to suit different types of door handle and to cater for a range of situations. Door handles on rose and door handles on backplate are most commonly fitted to 63 or 75mm deep latch cases. These latches usually have a backset (the distance to the operating point) of 44 or 57mm. Door knobs require a longer reach because when you turn a door knob your knuckles need room to work, otherwise they will touch against the door frame. So door knobs are usually fitted to latch cases of 100, 125 or 150mm with backsets of 80, 100 or 125mm.
Here at Love Handles we have a quality range of latches from the likes of Easi-T, Eurospec, Zoo Hardware and Carlisle Brass. Prices start at under a pound, which is a great deal for quality latches made by some of the best manufacturers in the ironmongery industry. We also feature some charming, traditional latches with timeless designs and lovely old rustic finishes – these are perfect for older style properties such as cottages, farmhouses and country homes.
