Southco, a provider in engineered access hardware, has expanded its successful R4 Rotary Latch series with a new debris-resistant version that offers enhanced performance for medium-duty applications.
The new R4-75 Rotary Latch offers an integrated mounting bracket to simplify installation and features a concealed rotary mechanism that protects against dirt and debris and offers improved durability.
The debris-resistant design enables 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 or coach applications.
Constructed in corrosion-resistant steel, the R4-75 Rotary Latch ensures reliable performance in high-vibration environments, protecting 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.
“Southco’s R4-75 Rotary Latch with Debris Resistant Design provides new levels of design flexibility to OEMs, particularly for exterior panels on buses and motor coaches,” said global product manager, Cindy Bar. “The R4-75 Rotary Latch with Debris Resistant Design provides secure, hidden latching and remote actuation, while also simplifying the installation process.”
