Series 700

Series 700 self-balancing lid closure is available with either statuary bronze or black oxide finish. The standard closure features solid brass enclosed slide. It is also available with hardened moving parts and stainless steel rivets, particularly necessary for sound enclosures where they operate many times per hour. You may choose left or right hand brackets, a variety of spring tensions to suit application, and either a back side mount or side mount hardware.
