Twist Latches

Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has designed twist latches, wing latches, and butterfly latches for any type of enclosure. The flush-mounted design makes them especially useful in circumstances where the latch needs to be unobtrusive and compact. These latches allow users to engage or disengage a hook from a keeper with a simple twisting motion. At Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products we have designed our twist latches so that the wing that engages/disengages the latch and can fold down to lay flat on the latch. This is great feature for enclosures that are moved around a lot or for an enclosure that must be as thin as possible.

At SPEP we understand that proper design and function is just as important as overall quality. This is why we have made several different twist latch designs. Each design is made from high quality steel and stainless steel to resist corrosion in damp conditions. We have also included a padlock eye in some of the twist latches in order to make the enclosure more tamper resistant. These latches are also available in a variety of different configurations and sizes to accommodate a large variety of enclosures.

We are a 100% ESOP company meaning only our employees own the company. Therefore quality and customer satisfaction are always on our mind and our ISO 9001 certification shows that even more. We take great pride in our products and services so if you feel we can assist you with any of our products or perhaps a custom part please feel free to call and speak to our excellent sales team.

Adjustable Plastic Friction Hinge

Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products is proud of offer our custom Adjustable Plastic Friction Hinges in with a wide selection of configuration options to suit your needs. Our Adjustable Plastic Friction Hinge is carefully engineered to allow door positioning at any angle, often eliminating the need for gas springs or lid stays. This efficiency will maximize the amount of usable space inside an enclosure and reduce costs. The desired tension of the Adjustable Plastic Friction Hinge is achieved by adjusting with an Allen wrench. Screw caps cover the fasteners and add to the sleek and minimalist appearance of the hinge.


Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has also designed these Plastic Friction Hinges in three sizes to accommodate doors of various weights and sizes. The plastic is UV stable, and all the metal components of the hinge are made from stainless steel, ensuring durability for outdoor and indoor uses. At Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products, we understand the importance of thoughtful engineering.

Unique Stainless Steel Hinge - 1005SS and 1008SS

These two hinges constitute Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products’ unique stamped stainless steel versions of an industry standard hinge. Such a hinge normally is made of die cast zinc and chrome plating, however this version is prone to pitting when exposed to corrosive road salt. Sierra Pacific has greatly improved on the design with its patented stainless steel hinge, which will not pit under such conditions. There are other benefits to the stainless design. For example, cast hinges can fracture upon impact, but stamped hinges will only dent when a major force applied. Please contact us to learn more about the design improvements of the 1005SS and 1008SS hinges. Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products is proud of offer a hinge with numerous benefits and to offer it at a cost comparable to the traditional zinc cast legacy version.

Explosion Venting Latches

Explosion Venting Latches provide quick venting in case of dangerous internal pressure or explosion. Our Explosion Venting Latch is carefully engineered to maintain a tight seal under normal, non-pressurized conditions. This seal prevents the escape of gasses and heat within a window of normal pressure conditions. Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products abides by industry-standard pressure release ranges.


Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products has also designed these Explosion Venting Latches to be spring/bolt tension adjustable, and the latches are offered in two sizes. The Explosion Venting Latches are ideal for any manufacturing process that involves potentially dangerous gasses, dust particles, heat or chemicals. Industries such as Pharmaceutical, Mineral, Chemical, Food Processing, Textile, and other manufacturers benefit from this essential safety feature, sold by Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products at a competitively low price.

P/N 306 A Handle Designed For Strength.

The 306 handle was developed due to a customer not being satisfied with their cast handle. The customer used these handles on enclosures that housed expensive electronic equipment.  When enclosures were placed in rural areas, they sometimes fell victim to vandalism.  Vandals soon figured out that a strong impact could fracture the handle. So SPEP developed a handle with a robust design to withstand abuse.  Our handle and lock tabs are made from .25” thick steel to prevent it  from coming apart when subjected to the impacts of a hammer. It would deform and bend from the impacts but never crack apart.

 

If a robust handle is what your enclosure needs, PN 306 is the handle to do the job. We are also very experienced in developing custom hardware products to fit your application. Please give us a call at (310)608-0693 to talk to our experienced sales team.
