Compression latching hinge with safety catch
04 November 2015
A new, patented compression latching hinge is now available from Albert Jagger. Part of the Kilmaflex system and designed for insulated and HVAC applications, these hinges are manufactured by Jagger's Swedish partner, Industrilas.
The product can be used as a hinge or latch, allowing for left or right-sided assembly, as well as complete removal of the door if required. This ensures the hinge is functional for a wide range of applications, with tactile feedback during use and a 180 degree opening angle when applied as a hinge.
Constructed from high-quality robust materials, including polyamide, die cast zinc and stainless steel, the hinge meets standards for sealing Level 1 according to DIN EN 1886. Simple assembly and smooth opening allows for safe and effective operation when using as a hinge or latch. Furthermore, the new compression latching hinge is also available in an extensive range including non-locking, push-button, keyed and tool-operated. All hinges are fully customisable to individual logo-type upon request.
Safety has been the main priority during the design stages of this product. The 6mm compression and decompression process ensures equalisation of pressure both inside and outside the door. Whilst maintaining a closed position, the hinge allows air to safely pass through the door and frame. This means a safe and steady opening, reducing the risk of compressed air hazardously forcing the door open. The added bonus of a built-in safety catch, plus vertical adjustment, makes it easier to achieve a perfectly sealed door.
