Commercial Vehicles and Trains

ON THE WAY TO EVERYWHERE

When things are moving, a bump in the road can really shake things up. However, this should not be true for latching systems. They need to be designed to withstand all kinds of vibrations, while also make sure the outside weather conditions stay on the outside.

PERSONAL SAFETY

Vehicles and trains operate with people in them, and with people around them in other vehicles, on bikes or on foot. To ensure personal safety, nobody should be at risk of being hit by something falling off a truck, because a poor latch just let a door open. At the same time, the driver of a truck or passengers on a train, should be sure that no indoor cabinets or doors open by themselves and hit them.

USER EXPERIENCE MATTERS

The person who operates a latch instantly notices if it is not working smoothly. Imagine getting into a car or truck and slamming the door shut. But it does not close properly so you must pull the door towards you until the final click is heard. Now imagine that this is your workplace, and you need to open and close that door 25 times a day.

The same is true for the cabins of long-haul trucks. This is the home of drivers for long stretches of time. For them to be comfortable, and enjoy their time in the cabin, it is vital that all cabinet latches operate with ease, that cabinets stay closed and that the ladder to the bunkbed is simple to unfold, use and securely fold away again.
