What are door bolts?

Door bolts are an essential addition to any property, providing an added layer of security against unauthorized access. These pieces of hardware are designed to be simple yet effective and can be installed on the inside of a door to prevent it from being opened from the outside.

Door bolts are operated manually by sliding a bolt into a strike plate, providing a secure and reliable locking mechanism. They come in various sizes, styles, and materials, such as brass, steel, or iron, and can be customized to fit any aesthetic. Additionally, door bolts can be installed in various locations on the door, such as the top or bottom, to provide additional security.

When used in combination with other locking mechanisms such as deadbolts or padlocks, door bolts provide an extra layer of security, essential for residential, commercial, and industrial settings. This combination ensures that the door is securely locked and cannot be easily breached.

Furthermore, door bolts are a cost-effective and straightforward way to improve the security of any property, making them an excellent investment for anyone looking to protect their home or business.

How to install a sliding door bolt:

Investing in additional security, like door bolts, for your home is an easy choice, but knowing how to install them can be tricky. Luckily, door bolts are easy and quick to install.

Use these quick steps as a guide:

  • First decide on the height at which you want to place it.
  • Next, use a pencil to mark the spot on the door frame where the bolt will go.
  • Use a drill to make a hole where you made the mark. Ensure that the hole is deep enough for the bolt to fit tightly.
  • Insert the bolt into the hole and secure it using screws.
  • Finally, test the bolt to ensure that it is working properly.

What are the different types of door bolts?

Door bolts come in a range of sizes, finishes, and styles. Each style of sliding door bolt has unique functions, so choosing the right door bolt for your need has never been easier. The 2 most popular door bolt styles are:

1.     Straight door bolts

A straight door bolt, which is also known as a surface door bolt or straight barrel bolt, is a simple and widely used type of bolt. They are often used in conjunction with other door hardware to provide an additional layer of security beyond just door handles, latches, or knobs.

2.     Necked door bolts

Necked door bolts are designed to provide a greater level of security and reinforcement to a larger surface area of the door. Unlike straight barrel bolts, necked door bolts have a curved or angled bolt head that helps to distribute the force over a wider area, making them more effective at preventing forced entry.

These door bolts can be used both horizontally and vertically and are a popular choice for securing doors in both residential and commercial settings.

With their unique design and added strength, necked door bolts are an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve the security of their doors. Discover our 152x38mm Necked Door Bolt in a classic polished brass finish.
