FDB Panel Fittings has released a new Dirak 6-500 compression latch, which is a novel cylinder lock designed to IP65 which makes light work of gasket clamping over the extended range of 20mm.
This makes it suitable for large doors with soft gaskets. It is also vibration resistant, so, in addition to public access areas, it is suited to transport or other vibration prone environments such as gensets.
The 6-500 is installed with through door fixings with no protruding handle or knob, and may be fitted with an external protective lock cover. It is particularly suited to rod locking systems where it may also be used in a horizontal orientation
