Typical L handles for office/industrial use

As a supplier of hardware components, we work every day with panel builders who need to achieve various levels of protection depending on the specific configuration of the installation and the environment in which it will operate. To help achieve this – whether IP44 or IP67 or something else, we offer a high-quality selection of locks and latches alongside the hinges and gasket sealing profiles.

Generally, in terms of IP protection, we tend to focus on the locks and latches since they are more self contained – whereas hinges and gasket must be evaluated in so far as the cabinet design is suited to them and facilitates their overall sealing.

eg in regard the sealing between lock body and door, and in terms of placement of the lock and especially considering the operation, dimensions and adjustment of the cam or tab which greatly affects the integrity of the gasket seal.
