Latching performance for outdoor enclosures

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

The Southco CR Multi Point Compression latching system is said to provide a robust solution to enhance secure performance with multiple key locking options and adjustable multi point latching for gasketed enclosures.

Incorporating vandal resistance, sealed performance and 5mm of centre point compression, it is suitable for use with environmental, emi or rfi gaskets in a range of outdoor enclosures for telecom, electronics, or industrial equipment applications.

Four different locking options offer choices and multi key code management flexibility. These include standard Southco shuttered lock cores - with or without a supplemental padlock – DIN 18254 lock cores and two industry standard tool access options with padlock protection.

The key locking versatility allows users to match key codes with other Southco lock cores used throughout their installation, for single key convenience. It offers the option of using higher security DIN lock cores, installed by Southco or by the end user. And it provides an add on layer of padlocking security that allows end users to make instant changes to access control with supplemental 8mm padlocks.

The CR latch handle is partially recessed into the door panel and, when released, it creates a user grip which provides the means for controlled release of the centre compression. Since the latch opens by turning the swing handle in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction, it is well suited for close quarter installations on either left hand or right hand opening doors.

The main latch housing fits outer door panels ranging from 1.5 to 3mm thick, and can accommodate double walled doors. Individually ordered multi point latching rods allow the main latch mechanism to be mounted off centre, or to be centred on doors up to 2metres tall.
