HONG KONG SAR – 4 February 2021 – Southco Asia Ltd., a subsidiary of Southco Inc., a leading global provider of engineered access solutions such as locks, latches, captive fasteners, electronic access solutions and hinges/ positioning technology, has expanded its successful R4 Rotary Latch series with a new debris resistant version that offers enhanced performance for medium-duty applications.
Southco’s R4-75 Rotary Latch offers an integrated mounting bracket to simplify installation and features a concealed rotary mechanism, to protect against dirt and debris, for improved durability in applications where remote actuation is required.
The R4-75 Rotary Latch with Debris Resistant Design offers a compact solution for applications that require concealed mounting and remote actuation of a door or panel. An in-line trigger and external rotor feature provide robust latching for interior or exterior enclosures and compartments, making it an ideal choice for the Off-Highway, Truck and Bus & Coach applications.
Constructed in corrosion-resistant steel, the R4-75 Rotary Latch with Debris Resistant Design provides durable performance in high vibration environments, and protects against exposure to dust and dirt. Two-stage engagement protects against false latching, providing secure and positive latching at low closing forces with push-to-close convenience.
