M3 - Multi-Point Compression Latching Systems

The M3 system uses multiple over-center latch mechanisms to provide the ultimate in consistent compression along the entire edge of an enclosure door. Available with multiple choices of stylish, flush-handle actuators, it can be installed to meet industry standards for environmental or EMC sealing applications.

M3 - Multi-Point Compression Latching Systems

A complete M3 latching system consists of an actuator, two or more remote compression latches, and one or two hexagonal rod(s). The hex-shaped drive rods run the length of the cabinet door to enable you to drive multiple compression latches simultaneously from one actuation point.

  • Multiple latch points can be positioned anywhere along the hex drive rod
  • Each remote latch point provides 5 mm (.20") of compression
  • Easy to operate with a straight pull on the actuator handle
  • Protection of latch mechanisms inside of gasketed seal is suitable for outdoor use
  • Available with multiple choices of hand-, tool-, or key-operated actuator styles
  • Latch mechanisms offer adjustable grip dimensions to suit application
  • Optional keepers are available to provide grip ranges from 15 mm (.59") to 30 mm (1.18")
  • Lift-handle actuator offers added option of padlock hasp to existing built-in locking mechanisms
  • Optional gaskets available for environmental or EMC sealing
  • Maximum static working load: 890 N (200 lbs.)
  • When mounted with the appropriate gaskets, the lift-, paddle-, and push-button-handle-style actuators satisfy the requirements of NEMA 4, IP-66, or EMC applications
