New Compact Rotary Latch Series from Southco Eliminates Noise and Vibration
CONCORDVILLE, Pa. — Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has further expanded its successful line of rotary latching solutions with the launch of the R4-10 Rotary Latch with Integrated Bumper. Southco’s newest rotary latch is available in single and two-stage options and features an integrated rubber bumper that eliminates noise and vibration caused by normal operation.
The R4-10 with Integrated Bumper features a design that traps the striker between a rubber bumper and rotor. Without extra clearance or room to move, any noise potential that could be caused by metal-on-metal movement or vibration is eliminated. While both the single and two-stage options provides proven, secure latching, the two-stage option is designed specifically to prevent false latching conditions.
The high-strength, compact design of the R4-10 Rotary Latch occupies minimal space within the enclosure, providing concealed latching and increased security. Available in corrosion-resistant steel, these latches are suitable for demanding environments and can be used in a broad range of applications across industries. Additionally, R4 Rotary Latches can be combined with Southco’s line of mechanical and electronic actuators and cables for a complete rotary latching system.
Global Product Manager James Stroud adds, “With the incorporation of the rubber bumper option, our new R4-10 Series offers a significant reduction in the common ‘buzz, squeak and rattle’ of door hardware during normal operating conditions.”
