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. 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.


H3-EM ELECTRONIC LOCKING SWINGHANDLESouthco’s H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle features an efficient microprocessor-controlled gear motor design that ensures minimal power consumption and provides intelligent locking and monitoring capabilities. The H3-EM can be used as a standalone system, integrated with an existing building access control system or supplied as a fully networked system enabling remote monitoring and audit trail reporting to meet compliance requirements, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes Oxley. The H3-EM Electronic Locking Swinghandle can easily accommodate a variety of rack sizes and configurations with its simple, single-hole panel preparation.

H3 SWINGHANDLE MULTI-POINT SYSTEMThis upgraded modular design offers extreme flexibility in an aesthetically and ergonomically pleasing low-profile package for industry-standard panel preparation requirements. Multiple offset cams, multi-point latching, and numerous locking and non-locking options simplify cost-effective configuration. The swinghandle nests into the housing for minimal protrusion and pops up to swing smoothly for easy latch actuation. Robust die-cast zinc construction provides durable, corrosion-resistant performance, with optional gasketing for indoor or outdoor use. A lightweight nylon version provides a reduced-cost alternative for indoor applications.


As a simple, economical add-on option for many Southco single-point latches, these fixed-rod latching systems can be included in your original cabinet design or retrofit as needed. The added latching points at the extreme edges of door panels provide extra security and strength for longer doors by eliminating pry points, flexing, and rattle. The deadbolt design of the A5 Multi-Point System provides simplicity of installation and operation.


A5 Flat Rod Multi-Point Systems offer increased strength when controlling multiple latching points from a single point of operation. When installed within an enclosure, the added latching points at the extreme edges of door panels provide increased security and strength, eliminating pry points, flexing and rattle. These economical systems can be easily integrated into original enclosure designs or retrofitted as needed.

There’s no compromise of style, performance, or security with this affordable multi-point latching system designed especially for gasket-sealed outdoor applications. A low-profile handle, installation flexibility, and adjustable fit provide an attractive look and reliable performance for a variety of telecom, electronics, and industrial enclosures. This heavy duty swing-handle latch design enhances vandal-resistant security and provides three points of engagement for even gasket compression in environmental, EMI, and RFI sealing applications. The versatile options of cam offset offer tremendous flexibility for installation and adjustment.


Designed for indoor applications, this latching system is mounted outside the gasket seal and close to the door edge, where it provides lever action and remote compression in a small space. It provides very stylish options in enclosure design, with the use of concealed latching mechanisms and just a slim-profile handle visible outside the enclosure. The Southco F2 Multi-Point Latching System, engineered to meet industrial design requirements, is available with varying lengths and latch-point locations to fit a wide range of enclosure shapes and sizes.
