Protex Fasteners has introduced the 75 series of over-centre latches, suitable for medium-duty applications in aggressive operating environments.

Incorporating a raised tail profile that ensures effective operation – even at low temperatures by users wearing thick protective gloves – 75 series latches offer up to 10mm of grip range adjustment to suit guarding, enclosure, machine building and process equipment applications across a range of operating temperatures and environments.

The new units feature a compact base design for location and mounting on assembly components, as well as a spring-loaded rocker safety catch that engages automatically on closing and can be padlocked to provide additional security.

Available in stainless steel and zinc-plated mild steel, with tensile strength figures of 750kgf and 650kgf respectively, Protex 75 series latches are currently offered with a hook claw or a solid strap for use with a range of catch plates.

Full details of the new Protex fasteners – including AutoCAD-compatible 2D drawings or 3D product models in native Solidworks, Step, Iges and E-drawing formats – can be downloaded for use in customers’ own designs from the company’s website.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)-compliant site provides access to more than 550 Protex products and incorporates a set of measures, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and encryption technology, to provide users with fast, efficient and secure online order processing.
