Latch magnets are important magnets that are used for locking doors, windows, pool gates etc. These are powerful and reliable safety magnets that are used widely. The latch magnets come in various shapes, sizes and width depending upon the applications.
There are various ways by which latch magnets are created. For example, ceramic or magnet are placed between two zinc-plated steel pole pieces to form latch magnet assembly which are held together magnetically. Normally the latch magnets have a center hole for mounting.
Types of Latch Magnets
Depending on the functions and configuration latch magnets are of following types:
Super Latch Magnets
Super latch magnets are powerful magnets which can lift, hold or retrieve metal objects up to hundred times their own weight. Featuring welded solid steel construction, latch magnets can be used to secure gates or doors.
Universal Latch Magnets
Universal latch magnets are normally set in durable red plastic casing with four elongated holes which allows multi-directional and adjustable mounting.
How gate latch magnet functions?
the latch is set into action, a powerful magnet draws a latch bolt from one housing into the other, latching it securely. The latch cannot be disengaged from shaking pushing or pulling. Since there is no mechanical resistance to closures, it eliminates the sticking jamming and sagging which are typical to mechanical gate latches.
Latch magnets have following applications:
Door latch and for holding key rings nameplates nozzles and ferrous metal objects.
