A couple of nice new items for you to consider are the stainless L- and T-handles available with compression to maximize the seal against harsh weather. In addition, they are sealed and rated at protection degree IP69K, meaning it is
sealed for high-pressure, high-temperature washing and is rated as
"Waterproof according to NEMA 4".
One of the types (top handles in image) offers the more conventional solution with a fixed cam-position, allowing you to fine-tune the latching position with a bent cam. The other type (bottom handles in image) offers our popular extended, threaded shaft which allows you to place the cam along its entire length, resulting in a long distance for adjusting. Fixing the cam is done with counter-nuts.
This latch is the perfect solution if you are in prototype-building stage, or want only one latch in stock that will fit several of your products. This means maximum flexibility for adapting to your various projects.
These are unusual handles – being stainless and having built-in compression – and we feel certain you will find them unassuming problem-solving stars in those difficult situations like on oil-rigs, on ships, in factories and similar.The compression function seals the door just right, compressing the sealing profile to create a perfect seal against the surroundings and also reduces noise when vibrations are present. Finally, the handles are really good looking in brushed stainless steel, offering a good grip in the user’s hands.
