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
