New Corrosion-Resistant, Southco R4-30 Latch Eliminates False Latching Conditions In The Toughest Environments

Southco has introduced the newest addition to their successful R4-30 range of rotary latches. Constructed from high-strength, robust stainless steel with a two-stage design, the new R4-30s ensure safe use and increases security by preventing false latching conditions in heavy-duty enclosure applications. The addition of corrosion-resistant materials to the range mean you can use your R4-30 latches for longer than ever.

The two-stage design and elimination of false latching makes the new R4-30s ideal for applications where safety and security is of the highest importance, including construction, agricultural, industrial machinery, marine and transportation.

These robust latches combine rotary-action security with push-to-close convenience making them ideal for doors and panels of heavy-duty equipment and vehicles.

The durable materials, corrosion-resistant plating and robust construction, make these latches suitable for the most demanding of environments. Additionally, the R4-30 range continues with the options and applications that made it such a popular choice to begin with:

Available Options

  • Separate models available for right-hand and left-hand opening styles.
  • Available in choice of threaded and through-hole mounting styles.
  • Electronically actuated rotary latch models also available.
  • Two-stage cam version prevents false latching condition.
  • Single and two-stage cam versions with integrated bumper option to eliminate noise and vibration.
  • Dual point option allows the rotary latch to be actuated from different positions.
  • Compact and micro styles minimize protrusion within the enclosure.
  • Integrated cable mounting bracket option eliminates the need for secondary installation components.
  • Paddle actuator option combines rotary latch and actuator into one solution for simplified rotary system installation.
