Receivers



 


TDS 126-1 | Receivers

The versatility of the Norse Latch System is to a large extent contingent upon the variety of Receivers shown on these pages, which allow the Latches to be used in so many different applications. With a few exceptions, any of these Receivers can be used with any Latch, whether the Receiver be an encased type or nonencased. Illustrations of many ‘Mixed’ combinations are shown in the ‘Applications’ of Sections 1, 2 and 3, in this catalog, and some also on the following pages. ENCASED RECEIVERS Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 Encased Receivers and modifications thereof matching and interchangeable with Latches Type 1, Type 2 & Type 3. (i.e.: A TYPE 1 LATCH CAN BE USED WITH A TYPE 2 OR TYPE 3 RECEIVERS, ETC.)  

Download:

 


TDS 126-2 | Non-Encased Receivers

Each of these non-encased Receivers has been designed for the numerous projects where the configuration of the elements to be joined or closed will not be accommodated otherwise.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-3 | 'H' Receiver and Rod Receiver

The ‘H’ Receivers were designed to be mounted behind the panel frame material, usually 3/4"/19mm wood. No flange recess is required. ‘H’ Receivers are usually used with a Type 2 or Type 3 Latch as shown here. Rod Receivers (as shown here typically mounted in a wood 2x4 frame) have several advantages. The “setback” dimension is determined by the drill hole location, and is therefore infinitely variable, compensating for different Latch setbacks. “Press-in” installation is very simple. Various lengths are available. Cost is minimal.

TDS 126-4 | 'U' Receiver and 'D' Receiver

‘U’ Receivers are used in many applications; they facilitate latching at 90°. Used with any Norse Latch, the aesthetic appearance of this Receiver makes it suitable for doors and other high profile applications. The ‘D’ Receiver is a predecessor to the ‘U’ Receiver and can be used in its place. It has the advantage of providing more of a sup- port, particularly when used as a shelf or desk top attachment as shown here.

TDS 126-5 | 'J' Receiver and 'JL' Receiver

The ‘J’ Receiver expands the utility of the Norse Latches considerably. Its versatility is shown here in these applications. ‘JL’ Receivers facilitate container lid tie-down and around-the-corner closures in addition to many other applications.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-6 | Mushroom Receivers and Short 'P' Receivers

THE ‘MUSHROOM’ RECEIVER AXIALLY JOINS TUBULAR MEMBERS SO THAT RANDOM RADIAL ORIENTATION IS ACCOMMODATED. THE TUBES CAN BE ROTATED AS REQUIRED. THE SHORT ‘P’ RECEIVER CAN BE USED WITH ANY NORSE LATCH. THESE RECEIVERS ARE PARTICULARLY USEFUL FOR DOORS, WINDOWS, BOXES, CASE CLOSURES, PANEL JOINTS, COUPLINGS, ETC.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-7 | 'P' Receiver

‘P’ Receivers are commonly used with Type 1 Latches on door, case and wall panel applications. When used in conjunction with the ‘Spring Fingers’ (see Fig. 3), they assist in keeping wall panels and counter & table tops tight and in-line.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-8 | 'PL' Receiver

‘PL’ Receivers are most often used with Type 1 Latches on case goods, doors, wall panel corner joints, etc. When used with Spring Fingers (see Fig. 3), they assist in holding corner panel joints at 90°.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-9A | 'IT' Receiver and 'OT' Receiver

The ‘IT’ and ‘OT’ Receivers each have a slanted surface upon which the Latch hook slides when locking, imparting a lateral force when compressing the door panel against the case. This is especially beneficial when gasketing is involved. Both the ‘IT’ and ‘OT’ Receivers can be used either inside or outside a case. See TDSs 21-1 and 21-2, and 41-1 and 41-2.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-9B | 'OT' Receiver: OTR187-2 with Keyholes for Screws

This ‘OT’ Receiver has a slanted surface upon which the Latch hook slides when locking, imparting a lateral force that compresses the door against the case. This is especially beneficial when gasketing is involved. The ‘OT’ Receiver can be used either inside or outside a case. See TDSs 21-1, 21-2, 41-1 and 41-2. Of particular interest the OTR187-2 has keyhole-shaped screw holes for the easy removal of these Receivers when used, for example, as window hardware for hurricane shutters. See TDS 207-2A1.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-9C | Big 'OT' Receiver and Type 1 Large Latch

The Big ‘OT’ Receiver has a slanted strike surface upon which the Latch Hook slides when locking, imparting a downward force on the latch. This is especially beneficial in such applications as clamping a hurricane panel inward against a window frame, so as to withstand the strong winds of a hurricane.

TDS 126-10 | 'O' Receiver and 'OD' Receiver

‘O’ and ‘OD’ Receivers facilitate multiple panel joining at infinitely variable angles, both free standing or to a wall as shown in Fig 3.

TDS 126-12 | Cup Receiver

The Receiver for joining panels at infinitely variable angles. The Cup Receiver facilitates joining panel elements at infinitely variable angles. Multiple panel to panel (free standing), or panel to wall joints are easily accomplished. The Cup Receiver slips into common 1 1/2" PVC water pipe tubing forming a close fitting sight and sound barrier for office landscaping and other partitioning projects.

TDS 126-13 | Hinge Receiver

The Hinged Receiver can be used to join one panel to another, or to a wall, thereby producing a variable angle connection.

TDS 126-15 | 'JLW' Wide Receiver

‘JLW’ Wide Receivers were designed for use with Norse Heavy Duty Multilatches® which have two shock hooks in addition to the Latch Spring Hook, at each of the multiple Latch stations. These are used as simultaneous-locking panel corner connections. The extra width Receivers compensate for tolerance build up over an 8'/2.4m (or more) span.  

Download:

 


TDS 126-16 | Channel Receiver

A Channel Receiver is part of an engineered Norse Multilatch® assembly Channel Receivers have been designed for use with Norse Multilatches which usually consist of two to four Latches operating simultaneously and mounted on a common channel or angle member. This Channel Receiver serves as a strike for all the Latches. In one usage it may be attached to an elevator cab wall, or on the emergency exit door itself, to which it serves also as a stiffener. It is also frequently used on RF shielded electronic cabinets.
