The new DIRAK compression rod latch from FDB Panel Fittings facilitates a multi-point 3 or 5 point system with 4mm clamping at each latching point so ensuring constant pressure over the entire edge length with a high degree of sealing. It will be suited to large electrical and electronic cabinets in outdoor or internal wash-down areas.
A quality die-cast engineered latch mechanism operates with a 90 degree turn of an external swinghandle, followed by a further 45 degree turn which creates the 4mm pull-down. 8mm round rods or 3×14mm flat rods are used to interconnect between individual latches which may be LH or RH closing.
The system is suited to large wall-mounted enclosures up to floor-standing cabinets where additional latches may be incorporated into the mechanism for extra closing force over very long door edges.
