Continuous Hinge 3 Point Latch


Continuous Hinge 3 Point Latch

Continuous Hinge 3 Point Latch Enclosure Applications

These indoor/outdoor stainless steel electrical enclosures protect electronic controls and components systems incorporating large components or complex mounting configurations in a variety of non-corrosive or mildly corrosive environments.  These electrical enclosures are typically used in food-processing plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, petrochemical plants, pulp and paper processing and waste-water treatment facilities, water treatment facilities, food processing plants and packaging applications.

These enclosures feature an easy-to-install three-point latch locking system incorporating Teflon rollers and a stainless steel rod mechanism to effectively secure the top and bottom of the enclosure door simultaneously with the point where the key is turned. When the lock is turned, the rotary movement of the latch on the inside of the door translates to vertical movement in these rods, with the result that the upper rod moves upwards by an inch or so, and the lower rod moves downwards similarly. This effectively immobilizes the top and bottom of the door, and greatly increases the security of the door-locking compared to a door with only single-point locking. The 3 Point latch mechanism also provides a watertight seal and therefore earns a rating of the enclosure up to 4X without the need for tools to unscrew all of the clamps.
