New Corrosion-Resistant, Southco R4-30 Latch Eliminates False Latching Conditions In The Toughest Environments


Southco has introduced the newest addition to their successful R4-30 range of rotary latches. Constructed from high-strength, robust stainless steel with a two-stage design, the new R4-30s ensure safe use and increases security by preventing false latching conditions in heavy-duty enclosure applications. The addition of corrosion-resistant materials to the range means you can use your R4-30 latches for longer than ever. 

Southco R4-30 Rotary Latch
The two-stage design and elimination of false latching makes the new R4-30s ideal for applications where safety and security is of the highest importance, including construction, agricultural, industrial machinery, marine and transportation.
These robust latches combine rotary-action security with push-to-close convenience making them ideal for doors and panels of heavy-duty equipment and vehicles. 
The durable materials, corrosion-resistant plating and robust construction, make these latches suitable for the most demanding of environments. Additionally, the R4-30 range continues with the options and applications that made it such a popular choice to begin with:
