With a minimal protrusion of 6mm the new 6-160 lever compression latch from FDB Panel Fittings provides all the benefits of compression closure with a recessed operating handle.
This makes it ideal for cabinets in areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic or narrow corridors such as computer suites, production line control systems or electronic cabinet in server hotels, while its resistance to vibration lends suitability to use on vibration prone applications such as railway carriages and HVAC panels to counter nuisance opening.

The 6-160 features especially easy installation. The complete latch, including the pre-assembled U-shaped fastening bracket, is installed in the cutout from outside. Then by rotating the fastening screw from outside, the U-bracket automatically fastens the complete latch and in the “closed” position the screw cannot be removed. The adjusting screw can also be used for retro-adjusting to increase or decrease the sealing pressure.

In addition the lever action gives both a soft landing (with cushioning rubber pad) and a comfortable feel for the operator – there is a choice of thumb activated handle release or a key cylinder security option with industry standard key types.
