Zinc Die Cast Application in Security Hardware

Zinc is chosen in many applications due to its precision, price, and performance advantages. Zinc die casting alloys enables the security hardware industry to modernize products, which provide ease, comfort, and security for consumers.

Deco Products is a well known and established name in the window and door hardware industry. Deco Products has many sash lock designs to give style to an important piece of security in a home. The sash lock is entirely made of zinc die cast parts that are assembled together to make the window sash lock. We have sash lock offerings for specific customers, as well as a catalog of Deco owned designs. The whole catalog can be viewed by clicking the link.

Additionally, Deco Products offers a wide range of finishes for security products, including plating or powder coated painting. Deco offers close to 100 different powder coating colors. Zinc die cast parts are powder coated by initially applying the dry powder followed by curing the powder coated part with heat or ultraviolet light. Powder coated parts are popular for their beautiful finish, superior corrosion resistance, and their resistance to chipping and scratching. Please contact our sales team to learn more about sash locks and powder coating applications on your parts.

Zinc is an easy choice for the sash lock due to its high strength, ability to have an appealing finish, and its high performance at a low cost. Other applications of zinc in security hardware is in locks for many safes as well as in keyless door locks.
