HDB Gate Latch Replacement

What is HDB?

In Singapore, HDB is an abbreviation for the HOUSING AND DEVELOPMENT BOARD, responsible for public housing administration. To accommodate Singaporeans, they offer accommodation at reasonable and cheap rates.

Because not everyone makes the same amount, not everyone can afford pricey homes. Although times have changed, the fundamental needs of all people have not. To live in a safe and secure environment is an essential requirement for which HDB offers affordable housing options.

HDB Gate Latch Replacement

HDB Gate Latch Replacement

If a door didn’t have a latch, what would it be used for? A latch is the most fundamental component of a door fixture since the door would simply not close without it. It is made up of a bar that falls into a holder when the door, gate, or window is closed and is lifted when the door, gate, or window is opened. The latch keeps the door, gate, or window shut. What use would a door be if it didn’t have something to keep it close? Latching is extremely vital, even though locks are used to keep the door closed. A latch is an addition to your locking system that increases its overall security.

The following are the various kinds of latches:

  • Cam Latches

Simple devices are used to latch and unlatch a door by turning the base with a key or something else, which presses the door close when the base is twisted. Their installation is straightforward and convenient, and they are operated by turning a simple 90-degree pivot point. Water and dust are not a problem for them, which is a huge plus!

  • Compression Latches

Using a trigger release mechanism, these latches operate. The locking arm is released when you touch a button or turn on a key. It is the lack of vibration and noise produced by compression locks that work to their advantage. Installation and operation of compression latches are similar to those of cam latches in terms of simplicity. A wide range of actuators and handle alternatives are available from them.

  • Slam Latches

Closed or slammed doors will lock or unlock these latches, which are activated by the spring. The term “push-to-close” is also used to describe this type of fitting. Suitable for industrial, agricultural, and construction applications, these latches are a great choice.

  • Draw Latches

They are also referred to as toggle latches or pull-down latches in some instances. They are used to join two or more pieces of wood together securely. Because of their smooth finish, they may be used in a variety of applications. Like the latches mentioned before, draw latches are simple to use and straightforward to put in their respective positions. A variety of sizes and design possibilities are also available from this company.

  • Sliding Latches

The general design of these latches is rounded and gentle. One-touch locking is provided by sliding latches, which require only that you slide the door open and close. They are perfect for ships, automobiles, trains, and bus sashes, amongst other applications.

The latches we sell come in various styles, and we feel that you should have the most outstanding possible locks not just for yourself but also for every room in your home.

Factors to consider before buying a latch

Latches for your doors cannot be purchased at random. Choose the best latch for your home by taking into consideration a few things. You will find them as follows:

  • Size

Consider the situation if you saw a large latch on a bit of door or a small latch on a large door. Isn’t that a total mismatch? Consequently, it is critical to measure your door before selecting a latch for it accurately.

  • Gate thickness

A wide variety of shapes and thicknesses are available in gates, particularly wooden ones. Always check the thickness of your gate before obtaining a latch to avoid any unpleasant surprises later on!

  • Design and materials

To be effective, your latch should always be aesthetically pleasing. To save you time and energy, your latch should be low maintenance. The material you use must be appropriate for the environment in which it will be utilised. Check that the latch’s material is sturdy and robust if it will be subjected to repeated or rough handling.

The purchase of latches is just the beginning; we also offer free installation services for our products. The installation process can be extremely crucial and delicate, so we only engage labour who has extensive experience in this industry.

Replacement

We understand that just like any other equipment, latches too will face problems sooner or later. At such times, you would either need a repair or a complete replacement! During such times, all you have to do is just call us and schedule an appointment! We will take care of the rest.

I received wonderful service from Jimmy. He reached our location at the agreed timing and proceeded to analyse the situation with our broken lock and explained how he will fix the problem. When we enquired more on the different lock models available for replacement, he was not pushy and explained the pros and cons of each model. In the end, we selected what we thought suited us best. Thumbs up to the service provided by Jimmy and will not hesitate to contact him again if the need arises.read more

Great & prompt service and I feel very lucky that I found this shop from google! Our main door lock suddenly got spoiled which caused unable me to get in the house on sunday morning. I was exhausted and tired after long walk and grocery shopping. They promptly helped to open the door and replace new one at reasonable price. Not over & hard selling and it's in fact cheaper than other 2 places that I compared. They explained well whats wrong and how they are going to fix it. Keep up the good work! I definitely recommend it to others.read more

We were very happy and pleased with David's service. He was very focussed and professional, managed to pry our door open in less than 5 minutes. He even offered us advice on how to ensure that we dont end up locking ourselves out of our bedroom again. This was in spite of our bedroom door being a tricky door since there isnt any doorknob or keyhole from the outside (see picture). 2 thumbs up for speedy response and excellent service ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผread more

David Lee was very prompt, he is honest and his workmanship is very professional. Takes pride in his skill and he went the extra mile to help me tighten my wooden door (screws were loose due to fair wear and tear), my padlock and even helped me drill a hole on the floor for my wooden door side panel to secure the door. Very satisfied with the service provided and would highly recommend his service to others.read more
