New latch with closure display

Heiligenhaus, 15.05.2013 – Steinbach & Vollmann presents a new family member in the product group of latches. As manufacturer of a broad portfolio in the product sector of latche closure technology, the company from Heiligenhaus offers an outright new solution for visual closure control with this innovation.

Contrary to the usual markings for the tongue position, the STUV designers have developed a display solution which is so obvious that it cannot be overlooked. When the closure is open, a red-rimmed and spring-loaded insert emerges from the housing and closes flush with the lock insert. This way the user can identify at a glance (and under poor visibility conditions reliably feel) whether the turning lock is in opened or closed position.

The new latch can be supplied with different lock inserts, depending on requirement and customer wishes and can be ordered in right and left versions.  Insert and housing are manufactured of V2A (investment casting). Other materials such as, e.g.  V4A can be supplied upon enquiry. O-ring and spring washer guarantee adequate protection of the inner housing against moisture.  The closure therefore also complies with protection class IP65. The drilling pattern corresponds to the standard of 20 mm.

The comprehensive accessories include, among others, opening key, dust caps and various tongue forms.
