New Compact Compression Latch for Limited Spaces

January 12, 2017 Rachel Pilgren




Southco has expanded its successful E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latch series with a compact version designed for limited space applications. The compact E3 Compression Latch combines high strength with a smaller design footprint for secure, vibration resistant latching in even the most challenging operating environments.

With its lightweight, shortened housing, the compact E3 Compression Latch easily fits into enclosures with interior space constraints. The compact E3 is tested to EN45545, the European fire resistance standard and meets NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection, making it suitable for a wide variety of industry applications.

Similar to the standard E3 line, the compact version delivers robust, vibration-resistant fastening, features a variety of grip lengths and is available in numerous head style options for added security. Additionally, the compact E3 features the same panel hole prep as the standard series and is available either with pre-installed cam options to minimize installation time or without to enhance flexibility in modular use.

With its reduced size, the compact E3 Compression Latch provides secure latching for high vibration environments and delivers the strength necessary to compress gasketing, making it an ideal choice for rugged, outdoor applications.
