New Southco M5 Magnetic Catches Combine Strength and Style – Available Now at Zygology

2 mins read

Delivering the holding power of rare earth magnets, Southco has launched the M5 Magnetic Catch. Combining strength and style, the latest in Southco’s magnetic catches range provides a secure, robust, and attractive solution for keeping doors and panels open or closed.

A reliable alternative to door stays, the M5 features corrosion-resistant stainless steel and has a highly polished finish, so it looks great no matter the application.

Strength and Versatility

Offering simple push-to-close and pull-to-open functionality, it’s well suited to high vibration environments. Additionally, it can be configured to provide nominal holding powers from 50-118 N (11-26 lbs) to accommodate multiple door sizes and weights with a significant tolerance for misalignment.

M5 Magnetic Catches are available in a range of swivel catch height options that can be mounted horizontally or vertically, and fixed catch options that mount flush to or directly on the surface to suit a wide range of door, panel and window dimensions.

Swivel catches are easily adjusted to hold at any desired angle. They include a rubber bumper surface to minimise noise from closing and vibration whilst also preventing scratching the mating fixed keeper.
