New Compact Rotary Latch Series from Southco Features Dual Trigger Actuation

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 Dual Trigger. Southco’s newest rotary latch features a compact design that provides multiple points of actuation, allowing the latch to be triggered by two independent actuators.

Dual actuation points and its compact size make the R4-10 with Dual Trigger an ideal solution for doors and panels that require actuation from multiple positions. For instance, the R4-10 with Dual Trigger facilitates access when entering or exiting an entry door, or when accessing a larger panel or piece of equipment from two separate points.

As the smallest latch size available in the R4-10 Series, the Dual Trigger model occupies minimal space within the enclosure, providing concealed latching and increased security. Constructed of corrosion-resistant steel, these latches are available with an integrated bumper feature, and single or two-stage latching, and are well suited for a broad range of application environments 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, “The dual trigger actuation provided by Southco’s newest addition to our R4 Rotary Latch Series simplifies rotary door systems and improves end user operation when actuating or opening of an access panel from multiple positions.”
