Strength & Security in Minimal Time

Southco’s R2 & R5 Panel Fastening Draw Latches are established products & have been built with efficiency in mind. Combining quick operation, exceptional strength & concealed mounting, R2 & R5 Panel Fastening Draw Latches provide a proven solution for joining panels, & securely closing doors. With less than one full turn of a wrench, panels can be securely joined, or disassembled for service or transportation.

Enhanced Corrosion Resistance & High Strength Latching 

The updated latches combine reliable, industrial grade finishes with strength & durability. Refreshed with galvanised steel to prevent rusting, the R2 & R5 latches deliver a consistent long-lasting appearance over time while maintaining the product’s established quality & strength.

Production processes are increased as the latches enable the rapid assembly & disassembly of doors & panels, providing significant reductions in time & labour costs. Trusted with secure construction of exhibits, displays & staging, they are a proven solution for joining panels, providing sufficient pull-up action to create a tight connection & seal.
