This industrial oven door latch is often used as a explosion relief latch or as a spring relief latch on industrial oven doors. Brixon is a great choice for door latches because they offer the widest pressure release range of any Factory Mutual (FM) approved explosion venting latch manufacturer, from as low as .01 PSI to pressure in excess of 3,000 pounds per door (using multiple latches). In addition to reliability and convenience, Brixon latches are designed to allow for installation from flush to well over 1 " offsets.
