Magnetic Catches

Magnetic catches are a simple and effective way to hold doors in cabinets and enclosures closed and have no moving parts. The catch consists of a magnet or series of magnets within a casing which is fixed to the cabinet door. When the door is closed, in the case of metallic cabinet, it is held closed by the magnet. If the cabinet is non-metallic a magnetically receptive counter plate can be fitted to the unit. When the door closes the magnetic catch and the counter plate meet and are held together magnetically securing the door. Magnetic latches are available with a wide range of holding forces and can also tolerate misalignment

Types of Magnetic Catch
Magnetic catches can be round or rectangular in shape and are available in a range of mounting and fixing styles

Mounting Types
  • Flush Mounted: These magnetic catches are recess fitted underneath the surface of the panel or door giving an attractive and functional flush finish
  • Surface Mounted: These magnetic catches are mounted on the top of the surface of the door or panel

Fixing Methods
  • Screw: These catches are affixed with screws which offers vibration resistance
  • Snap-in: These catches feature panel mounting flanges and snap directly into a hole and are quick and easy to install
  • Self-adhesive: These catches have an adhesive strip which secures the catch to the door and are simple to install

Counter Plates
Counter Plates are magnetically receptive steel strips that are used with the magnetic catches in non-metallic enclosures or cabinets. The counter plate can be screw mounted or adhesive mounted.
