Latches for Rapid, Secure Assembly of Sectional Flooring

Norse latches are designed for concealed installation in sectional flooring. Multiple configurations of latches and receivers are possible to suit many applications, and offer numerous advantages:

· Exceedingly strong section-to-section compression, with a clamping force of 500 to 550 lbs.

· Yieldable, with forgiveness of installation tolerances to 1/4 inch due to a unique spring loading mechanism.

· Allows for multiple installations including: recessed in from beneath the floor; mortised directly into the center (width) of the flooring sections; mortised into the center (width) of thin floors (5/8 in.) when metal-reinforced edging is used; and beneath raised flooring mounted on vertical supports to create a raceway for pipes, wires, etc.

· Can be installed in flooring as thin as 5/8 in.

· Can be specified with upward-dimpled flanges for flush screw head installation, no protusion.

· Uses a standard hex key for rapid operation (3/4 turn) when compared to installation using standard fasteners (screws).

· Can be operated from above the flooring via a small (5/16 in. dia.) key hole if desired.

· Operable by inexperienced installers with minimal instruction.

Engineering assistance is always available for optimal latch and receiver selection.
