Low noise sliding slam latch

​The new DIRAK sliding slam latch from FDB Panel Fittings provides a low noise secure door closure mechanism for internal doors, cupboards etc.

It is expected to be of value in specialist vehicles such as caravans, commercial vehicles, railway rolling stock and similar.

Explains Gary Miles, MD at FDB Panel Fittings: “In the event of the transportation of containers – for example, for small animals or similar, in addition to vibration resistance and secure locking of doors and hatches – a stable closure is essential. For this reason, DIRAK have developed their new sliding slam latch, which, due to its sliding release, prevents unintentional opening from the inside and furthermore is virtually noiseless during use.”

The new sliding latch is fitted with rubber plugs and a felt washer to cushion the latching components, so making it extremely quiet while enabling easy operation. The housing incorporates a sliding bolt with integrated stop, which allows independent locking by simple door closure – which can then only be opened by activation of the handle. Mounting is adjustable from the rear by means of integral slot nuts.

Locking variants are offered with cylinder barrel keyed alike, ‘1333’ – or keyed differently. Construction is in robust zinc die, with finish in black.
