The revamped Pemko Privacy Door Latch (PDLAA) brings a sleek and stylish design to interior-corridor openings such as hotels or dormitories. The new contemporary design maintains the latch’s simple operation. Pemko’s redesigned Privacy Door Latch is compatible with existing accessories and is easily retrofittable with the legacy Pemko PDL latch.
This durable accessory allows the door to be opened for identification while providing privacy for the guest or resident. The design of the PDLAA does not allow the door to be held open, avoiding door and frame damage caused by the door slamming against a traditional flip latch or chain. Silicone bumpers on the latch provide additional protection for the door.
Door guards, flip latches, and sliding chains have been used as means to provide privacy for guests and residents. However, these devices have been misused to prop doors open, causing damage to the door and frame as well as defeating the purpose of a fire-rated door.
