About the Locking Swing Handle for Broadband Enclosures

In today’s fast-paced digital world, the demand for high-speed internet and efficient telecommunication systems is greater than ever. To meet this demand, telecommunication companies invest in broadband enclosures, FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet), and 5G Telecoms street cabinets, which are essential for the expansion of their networks. Ensuring the security and accessibility of these cabinets is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the network infrastructure. One key component that plays a significant role in this regard is the locking swing handle.

Here, we will explore the benefits of using a locking swing handle in broadband enclosures, FTTC cabinets, and 5G Telecoms street cabinets, with a focus on its technical details, right or left-handed applications, 3-point locking option, IP65 rating, and its construction materials, among other aspects.

Technical Details

1. Right or Left-Handed Application: One of the key technical features of a locking swing handle is its adaptability for both right and left-handed applications. This versatility ensures that the handle can be positioned to suit the specific requirements of the cabinet, providing convenience and flexibility for technicians and maintenance personnel.

2. 3-Point Locking Option: The inclusion of a 3-point locking mechanism adds an extra layer of security to the cabinet. This design feature ensures that the cabinet remains securely locked, protecting the valuable equipment and connections within.

3. IP65 Rating: The IP65 rating is a testament to the locking swing handle’s durability and resistance to environmental factors. It signifies that the handle is dust-tight and protected against water jets from any direction, making it suitable for outdoor applications where it may be exposed to the elements.

Construction Materials

The construction materials used in the locking swing handle are designed to withstand various conditions while maintaining performance and reliability:

  • Housing: The housing of the handle is typically made of zinc die-cast material and coated with a black powder finish. This not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also provides robust protection against corrosion and wear and tear, extending the handle’s lifespan.
  • Spindle: The spindle, a critical component for handle operation, is typically constructed from stainless steel. Stainless steel is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, ensuring smooth and reliable handle operation even in harsh environments.
  • Cap: The cap of the handle is often made from polyamide material in black. Polyamide is a robust, lightweight, and durable plastic that is ideal for maintaining the handle’s integrity and function.


The locking swing handle is designed for convenient use by technicians and personnel. It opens the handle upward, and its quarter-turn opening mechanism ensures quick and easy access to the cabinet. The unique feature of position device direction allows for adaptation to right-hand or left-hand applications, making it a versatile solution for various cabinet configurations.

Additional Notes

It’s important to note that the cam, which is responsible for converting the motion of the handle into a locking or unlocking action, is ordered separately. This allows for customization and adaptation to specific cabinet requirements and locking mechanisms.

Performance Parameters

The locking swing handle’s performance parameters highlight its reliability and strength:

  • Handle Load Tension Capability: The handle can withstand a load tension capability of up to 390N, ensuring its resilience against external forces.
  • Handle Load Torque Capability: With a load torque capability of up to 12N.m, the handle can be operated smoothly and effortlessly, even with resistance.
  • Maximum Static Load: The handle can support a maximum static load of 300N, providing stability and security to the cabinet.

The locking swing handle is an essential component for ensuring the security and accessibility of broadband enclosures, FTTC cabinets, and 5G Telecoms street cabinets. Its right or left-handed application, 3-point locking option, IP65 rating, and robust construction materials make it a valuable addition to the telecommunications infrastructure. With its impressive performance parameters, it provides reliability and durability, ensuring the efficient operation of critical equipment and connections within these cabinets. In a world where connectivity is paramount, the locking swing handle stands as a vital asset in the telecommunication industry.
