A patch fitting is a type of door hardware that is used to secure a glass door in a frame. It consists of a metal plate that is mounted on the door and a corresponding plate that is mounted on the frame. The two plates are connected by a hinge, which allows the door to swing open and closed.
Patch fittings are typically used in commercial or public buildings, such as office buildings or shopping centers, where security and safety are a concern. They can also be used in residential settings for sliding glass doors or shower doors.
