Southco manufactures engineered access hardware designed to meet international standards for restricted access and ensure durability under harsh environmental conditions.

Heavy-Duty Actuators Enable Actuation of Multiple Rotary Latches

Southco has further expanded its successful line of rotary latching solutions with the launch of two new heavy-duty, paddle-style actuators that provide multiple points of actuation, allowing two connected rotary latches to be activated remotely by one actuator.

Southco’s AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators are constructed from corrosion resistant materials, making them well-suited for exterior applications that require robust performance. Available in polished chrome or black powder-coat finishes, these actuators feature a rugged, contoured paddle design for enhanced grip, key locking security and secure push-to-close functionality.

AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators are an ideal solution for doors and panels that require remote actuation of several connected rotary latches. When opening a large access panel on a piece of Off-Highway equipment for instance, the end user can easily release both latches at the same time by activating one actuator, facilitating operator entry.

With their high-strength, corrosion resistant paddle-style design, Southco’s AC-20 and R3-22 Actuators provide remote release of multiple connected rotary latches for simplified access in challenging environments. When combined with Southco R4 Rotary Latches and AC Cables, these Actuators create a complete Rotary Latching System, providing secure, reliable, remote latching for interior and exterior applications.
