Vibration and tampering are both addressed with the new Program 1000 stainless steel compression latch from EMKA for use in railway applications.
This IP65 latch offers a high degree of vandal-resistance by virtue of its tube key mechanism requiring a special internally profiled key to open/close and to operate the 6mm gasket compression featured by turning the key 90° - once to close the latch and then again to compress the gasket.
For clear visual indication the lock has red/green markings and a status arrow on the activating insert which shows the full 180° of movement so as to confirm that the lock is secure. Appropriate tube keys are also supplied.
