Secure, multi-point latching for outdoor enclosures

08 February 2010

Southco’s new CR multi-point compression latching system offers a robust and secure performance with multiple key-locking options and adjustable multi-point latching for sealed outdoor enclosures

High vandal resistance, good sealing performance and 5mm of centre-point compression, make the new CR latching system an ideal choice for use with environmental, EMI or RFI gaskets in a wide range of outdoor enclosures.

Four different locking options offer choices for enhanced security, convenient access control, 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. This key-locking versatility allows users to match key codes with other Southco lock cores used throughout their installation, for single-key convenience.

Aesthetically styled and ergonomically designed, the CR latch handle is partially recessed into the door panel, protruding just 12mm into the enclosure. When the recessed handle is released, it creates a convenient user grip and 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 suitable for close-quarter installations on either left-hand or right-hand opening doors.

The main latch housing fits outer door panels ranging from 1.5mm 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 of up to 2m height.

The multi-point latching rods can be used with a wide selection of cams to satisfy a broad range of enclosure designs and dimensions, while adjustment options allow the latching system to be fine-tuned to the dimensional and gasket requirements of your particular enclosure.

With a maximum static load rating of 250N and an average ultimate load of 580N, the CR meets Southco's Level-3 specification for vandal resistance, which prevents access using a hammer, chisel, screw driver or pry bar for up to five minutes.
