About Brixon / Latch Lake

For over 60 years Brixon Manufacturing has set the standard worldwide for excellence and innovation in the explosion venting latch category. Our pioneering work in safety latch systems helped build our reputation with dozens of Fortune 500 companies operating across a broad spectrum of industries. For decades we’ve partnered with both established and emerging companies in the Food, Pharmaceutical, Environmental, Chemical, Mineral, Textile, Plastics, Metals, and Dry Processing industries. The fact is: if your company manufactures or uses any equipment that encloses potentially More... explosive dust, gas, mist, or chemicals, you should install Factory Mutual (FM) approved Brixon® Safety Latches.

It is with a strong sense of pride that Brixon announces that we are the first company to produce all stainless steel explosion venting safety latches. Our new Brixon 90 Series is the result of years of development and testing. For the first time ever we can supply latch bodies, strikes and handles in solid stainless steel along with totally stainless internal components to make a 100% stainless steel latch.

The purpose of the Brixon® pressure release safety latch is to provide venting in the event of an internal explosion, and to maintain a positive seal in order to prevent loss of heat and/or escape of gasses under normal operating conditions, while allowing access to the protected enclosure. Brixon latches are Factory Mutual Global approved as explosion-venting door latches (1998 Factory Mutual approval Guide 8-1).

Use of Brixon latches is not limited to explosion venting. Many of our customers specify our latches for applications where reliable retention and release features, combined with shock absorption capabilities, are required. Brixon latches are designed to operate through tens of thousands of latch and release cycles under a variety of ever-changing positive, and/or negative pressure conditions. Brixon offers the widest variety of options to suit your particular application. Less
