Safety Release Latches by Application

Pressure release latches provide venting to help prevent internal implosion or explosion in applications involving combustible dust, mists, paints, solvents, and other hazardous substances. Explosion venting latches attach to positive, atmospheric, or negative pressurized doors and automatically release when pressure rises above a specified point. This release allows the excess pressure to escape, reducing the risk of implosion or explosion.
Brixon safety latches are easy to install and operate, coming in a wide range of latch materials and finish options, including spark-proof brass or aluminum, to accommodate various operating environments and industrial applications. Depending on the release force required by your application, we offer many options for you to choose from. Contact us today to discuss your industrial pressure latch needs.
