Quarter turn locks

Quarter turn locks are very simple and robust fastenings, most of which are operated by a widely available key or tool, although some types incorporate a simple lock. All offer ease of operation and are ideal for applications where regular access is required. The level of security afforded is ‘tamper resistant’, rather than providing genuine protection. The majority of these products can be specified as weather resistant to IP65 standard.

​Camlock specified most of the quarter turn products on this site from Mesan, which has been serving the industrial enclosure sector for over 30 years and exports to over 35 countries. Like Camlock Systems, Mesan is accredited to ISO 9001 : 2008.
