New Padlockable Cam Latch Features Redesigned Wing Knob
source: Southco - Rachel Pilgren-Kane
Southco has redesigned the wing knob version of its successful E5 Cam Latch series with a stylish, streamlined design that promotes improved ergonomics and enhanced security. The new E5 Wing Knob adds a padlockable feature capable of accepting a hasp shackle up to 8mm in diameter, and promotes a redesigned wing knob that functions as both handle and actuator.
The redesigned E5 Wing Knob features concave side surfaces that provide aesthetic appeal as well as positive finger grip for ease of opening panels and doors with a gloved hand. A spring loaded ball detent provides sensory feedback and helps to verify that the door is fully opened or closed with an audible “click”.
Tested to NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection, the E5 Wing Knob provides a high degree of ingress protection and is suitable for use indoors and out.
Southco’s line of E5 Cam Latches delivers robust, vibration-resistant fastening, features a variety of grip lengths and is available in numerous head style options for added security. Additionally, the E5 Wing Knob Cam Latch features the same panel hole prep as the standard series and is available with a separate latch and cam assembly to promote modular use.
The padlockable E5 Wing Knob Cam Latch provides ergonomic operation and secure latching in applications where increased security is necessary, such as industrial equipment with Lockout Tagout (LOTO) requirements.
