Southco, a provider of engineered access hardware, has expanded its extensive line of captive screws with a new option covering the majority of panel applications.
The new Southco’s 4C Extended Length Captive Screw provides a standard solution for sheet metal and panel applications requiring different screw lengths — reducing lead time and simplifying designs that would have previously required modified screw lengths.
Designed as a precise solution for panels, mounting doors, and other hardware applications, the 4C Extended Length Captive Screw is available in a variety of tool actuation and installation styles, including press-in and flare-in.
The captive screws feature heat-treated steel for superior torque strength, while color-coded over-molded head options allow designers to differentiate access points or coordinate hardware with the overall design scheme
“Previously, non-standard panel applications required modified screw lengths with lengthy lead times and costly design processes,” said global product manager Ike Teng. “The 4C Extended Length Captive Screw ensures that designers have easy access to a standard solution for non-standard panel designs and sheet metal thicknesses.”
