What exactly is a wedge?

A wedge is a part with a bevel used to clamp something. A wedge is also known as a cotter or a chock. Rob Snel mostly uses wedges in combination with door toggles.

Wedges are available in various shapes and heights and in various materials (see photos below).

What material wedge do I need?

What wedge material is best depends on the material of the frame that the wedge will be welded onto. That is, a steel (or stainless steel) wedge is welded onto a steel frame and a stainless steel wedge is welded onto a stainless steel frame. Triclad wedges are used for aluminium frames. In need of a triclad wedge? Visit the material properties page (under construction) for more information on this material. All wedges have a bevelled top made of steel or stainless steel to make it wear-resistant.

Are you looking for a bronze wedge? Look no further. These are used for a central QuickPin closure, for example, and are fitted with screws. Contrary to what the name suggests, this wedge is not wedge-shaped, but rather flat with a rounded edge.
 

Application of wedges in door toggles

In door toggles, wedges are welded into the door frame (see photo). Tightening the door toggle over the wedge pulls the frame tightly into the rubber of the door. This ensures that the door is resistant to water and other (extreme) weather conditions.

The same principle applies to central closing systems. This involves clamping multiple door toggles over multiple wedges at once. QuickPin central closing systems use angled pins instead of wedges.
