The unique stainless steel PROTEX CatchBolt holds firmly in three directions. The integral bolt forces a panel or door to close with the action of the lever drawing those two parts securely together. Available with safety catch or padlock option. For more details: http://bit.ly/2neYOhj

Some great pictures from today’s visit by Howard Cooke, our Managing Director to the Trico Stadium, home of Redditch United Football Club. Howard was given a number 1 football shirt bearing Protex’s name by David Tittershall, the Red’s general manager, as a way of saying ‘thank you’ for our sponsorship of a brand new community trust.

This trust aims to do lots of good work in the local community by, amongst other things, getting young people positively engaged in sport. Also in the frame is PCSO Ricky Brookes who is actively involved in this project along with other police officers from West Mercia Police.

PROTEX SUPPORTS NEW COMMUNITY VENTURE!

PROTEX is pleased to announce its involvement in a brand new community initiative for Redditch. This week we officially became sponsors of a charitable project set up by Redditch United Football Club to positively influence the lives of people living in our local area.

The purpose of the trust is to tackle issues including reducing anti-social behaviour and crime, reducing health inequalities and increasing social inclusion. It also hopes to boost participation in sports activity and to provide educational support to help increase the employability of young people.

The inspiration for the scheme came from the success of a satellite football club started by Redditch United earlier in the year. This now has more than 30 children regularly attend weekly evening football sessions at a local secondary school.

The club aims to roll out the scheme to other areas in Redditch and the funding from PROTEX will help employ a co-ordinator. It is eventually hoped to expand the project in ways that will benefit all sectors of the community.

Our Managing Director, Howard Cooke said: Managing Director Howard Cooke said: “When we heard about the beneficial impact this initiative has had on children in terms of building self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as enhancing physical wellbeing, PROTEX was keen to get involved. We’ve become sponsors because it’s vital to keep the momentum going and get more young people positively engaged in sport.”

We look forward to keeping you updated on this exciting venture!

ULTIMATE TENSILE STRENGTH
==========================

When selecting a toggle latch, over-centre fastener or draw latch, it is important to gauge the maximum load to which the latch will be subjected to. Each PROTEX latch is designed for a maximum load and we recommend that a safe working load is one that's half its ultimate tensile strength (UTS). The catch plate strength should also equal that of the latch. PROTEX supplies the following four categories of toggle latches:

LIGHT DUTY – adjustable, non-adjustable and spring latches with a UTS of 11kg to 90kg.

MEDIUM DUTY - adjustable, non-adjustable, spring and flexible latches with a UTS of 125kg to 750kg.

HEAVY DUTY - adjustable latches with a UTS of 1,000kg to 2,500kg.

SUPER HEAVY DUTY – adjustable latches with a UTS of 7,000kg.

We offer a wide range of quick action toggle latches and draw latches for you to buy directly from the manufacturer. Toggle latches provide an elegant solution when you need to ensure product or equipment accessibility, and when locked, the item securely fastened. Using a unique cam action, a toggle latch is stable, strong and dependable, yet the quick release function means it can be opened in a flash.
