For Residential and Commercial Buildings
Latch guards are a metal plate that protect the weakest points of a door, the space between the door frame and the door itself.
You might be asking, why do I need a latch guard if I already have locks on the door? Well, they help protect your latches from a burglars prying tools such as a crowbar. Most latch guards are commonly used on commercial property and multi-unit buildings. When a latch guard is installed over your existing latch it forces the burglar to pry further away from the latch, oftentimes leaving them locked out. Latch guards can be installed on either inward-swinging or outward-swinging doors.
Custom latch guards can significantly increase the security of a door. A full length latch guard covers the entire latch side from top to bottom. Additional add on options like a wrap-around-plate can also be made to further enhance your security needs.
