Title (EN) LATCH STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE VERROUILLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A latch assembly (10) is adapted for use on motor vehicles, such as agricultural and construction vehicles, recreation vehicles, utility and emergency vehicles, and heavy-duty trucks. The latch assembly includes a housing (16, 18) with a rotor (12) and catch (14) rotatably mounted therein for movement between open and closed positions for releasing and retaining a striker bolt on the door. Holes in the housing allow the housing to be mounted either internally or externally to the door frame. The rotor and catch are impregnated with a lubricant to minimize friction and extend the life of the latch assembly. A grease block is also provided within the housing to inhibit entry of contaminants, such as dirt, water, and the like, so as to further extend the life of the latch assembly.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un ensemble verrou conçu pour être utilisé sur des véhicules automobiles, tels que des véhicules agricoles, de chantier, de loisir, utilitaires ou de secours, ou des camions lourds. L'ensemble verrou comprend un logement contenant un rotor et un cliquet montés rotatifs à l'intérieur dudit logement pour un déplacement entre une position ouverte et une position fermée afin de libérer et de retenir une gâche de sécurité disposée sur la porte. Des orifices situés sur le logement permettent audit logement d'être monté soit à l'intérieur soit à l'extérieur de l'encadrement de porte. Le rotor et le cliquet sont imprégnés d'un lubrifiant servant à réduire au minimum la friction et à prolonger la durée de vie de l'ensemble verrou. Un bloc de graissage est également disposé dans le logement pour empêcher que des substances contaminantes, telles que des impuretés, de l'eau et analogue, ne pénètrent dans ce logement, de manière à prolonger davantage la durée de vie de l'ensemble verrou.
