The latest addition to the Heavy-Duty Rotary Latch line is designed for applications where durability and reliability are critical. As an FMVSS 206 capable solution for high strength door retention, the R4-50 is made for last-mile delivery applications where constant use and unpredictable conditions are the norm.

The new R4-50 combines these traits with electronic actuation and monitoring to verify door security. The latch is said to actuate reliably under high loads in under one second, and electronic access technology gives users remote control actuation at all times. The integrated sensor communicates when the latch is closed and the door striker is present to confirm that the door is secured. The entire electronic actuation system is sealed to protect against environmental conditions.

According to Southco, the R4-50 Heavy-Duty Rotary Latch will be a reliable solution for years after installation, even in the most demanding environments.
