Zygology Ltd News and PR from Zygology Ltd - Published 23 August 2018 New Southco E5 Cam Latch With Flexible Grip Adjustment Provides Single Solution For Multiple Applications Available Now
Expanding upon their popular E5 Cam Latch range, Southco has introduced their latest version of the series featuring flexible grip adjustment. With a focus on customisation, the deep offset, standard offset, and straight (no offset) options available, the latch covers a wide range of grip distances and is suitable for multiple applications.

Delivering unprecedented versatility, the new E5 Cam Latch features an extended shaft that allows the cam to be set at a specific grip to tightly secure a door or panel. The grip adjustment overcomes door tolerance inconsistency and permanent gasket setting

The E5 allows for the ideal compression of the door assembly by allowing the grip to be finely adjusted to provide optimal door closing or gasket sealing.

Meeting rigorous NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection increases durability and safety. The E5 provides ingress protection and is suitable for use indoors and out. Usability and longevity is increased as the new latch solution provides protection against incidental contact with elements such as falling dirt, rain, sleet, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, and hose-directed water.

To further demonstrate the attention to detail Southco delivered during design and development, the metal cam features a plastic cap that minimises noise when making contact with the keeper, delivering robust, scratch-free connection with the frame and protecting decorated or coated finishes.

Providing a single latching solution for multiple applications, the new E5 Adjustable Grip Cam Latch series offers the following features and benefits:

- Adjustable grip - Offers flexibility to manufacturing tolerances and adjustment to compensate for long term gasket set
