Door strikes are fitted to the door jamb to provide a secure position for the latch and deadbolt to seat when the door is closed and locked.
Lock forends are fitted to the thickness/depth of the door to finish the lock case with a decorative plate.
They are commonly supplied with the lock however there is often requirement for modified versions for site specific problems. Constant Engineering can manufacture in small and large volume strikes and forends to virtually any specification.
The majority of all handled doors will require a door strike plate and lock forend. Without one the door jamb can wear quickly, and result in unrepairable damage. Wood will not provide a secure home for the lock and wear and tear to the jamb will quickly take place.
Typically door strikes are made from 1.2/1.5mm thick materials, however, depending on the application and installation you may require a different material and thickness. Here’s our range of materials:
|Satin anodised aluminium||1.2||1.5||3.0|
|Polished anodised aluminium||1.5||3.0|
|PVD brass effect||1.5|
|Satin stainless steel G304||1.2||1.5||2.0||3.0|
|Satin stainless steel G430||1.2||1.5|
|Satin stainless steel G316||1.2||1.5|
|Polished stainless steel G304||1.2||1.5||2.0||3.0|
|Polished stainless steel G430||1.2||1.5|
|Powder coated (mild steel)||1.2||1.5||2.0||3.0|
|Powder coated (aluminium)||1.2||1.5||3.0|
|Chequer plate||2mm, including tread at 3mm|
