New LokkLatch® Magnetic Gate Hardware From CertainTeed Combines Security and Aesthetics with Motion Technology


(Valley Forge, Pa.) – New LokkLatch® Magnetic gate hardware from CertainTeed combines state-of-the-art technology with aesthetics for the ideal latching solution. A high-performance, premium addition to the Bufftech® vinyl fence product line, LokkLatch Magnetic features hidden fasteners, dual lock, an intuitive push-pull handle and reliable magnetic latching action.

“We are excited to offer our fence partners one of the most versatile, easily-installed and virtually maintenance-free gate hardware latch solutions available today,” said Doug Mucher, marketing manager for CertainTeed’s Fence, Railing and Deck business. “LokkLatch Magnetic includes the best of both worlds—effortless gate entry and exit and sound piece of mind due to its smooth, high security locking system.”

The stylish LokkLatch Magnetic gate hardware kit is engineered with strong, molded polymer and stainless steel components and includes TruClose® multi-adjust hinges, which can be used with any Bufftech vinyl gate. It is available in a black finish and dual 6-pin re-keyable locks and features ergonomic, contoured gate handles. Vertically and horizontally adjustable, it requires only one drilled hole for ease of installation. In addition, its tough construction won’t rust, bind, sag or stain.

LokkLatch Magnetic, which was developed by D&D Technologies, joins a complete line of high performance nylon gate kits, which include LokkLatch with Eternal Access Kit, LokkLatch Deluxe and MagnaLatch® Magnetic Safety Gate Latch.

Leading the industry in styles, colors and realistic textures, Bufftech vinyl fence products include a variety of traditional, contemporary, private, semi-private and classic designs. The product line features 13 designer fence colors, including nine multi-chromatic blends that capture the essence of stained wood. A wide selection of durable gates designed to match all fence styles are also available in a choice of heights and widths. Bufftech products are easy to install, and are backed by an outstanding lifetime limited transferable warranty, which includes SureStart™ protection that covers warranted repair and replacement costs – including labor – for five years after installation.
