New handbook published by Southco


Access solution manufacturer Southco has published a new handbook (HB 72), a comprehensive guide to all its products. It is the company’s first handbook to be released in print since 2015.

HB72 contains a wealth of information about Southco’s access solutions, including product drawings, performance details, available options and installation notes.

One feature is the part number builder. Many Southco products are highly configurable, allowing them to fit many different applications, but with such a large offering comes a long list of part numbers. HB72 details which options go with which part numbers, so manufacturers can be sure that they are getting the correct parts every time.

Another feature of HB72 is the selection guide in the beginning of each product category. This allows users to compare and contrast all products in a category side-by-side. They can view features such as material, latch types and installation, all in one table, to procure the best solution for their application.

Additionally, for each product there are detailed product drawings, performance details and installation notes. These provide the exact dimensions of each product, show how much force it is designed to withstand or provide, and is also intended to ensure that users install the product correctly.

While Southco’s last print handbook, HB65, remains a good reference point for the products contained in it, the company’s product range has increased substantially since the last handbook’s printing in 2015. HB72 includes more than 80 pages of new products that are designed for growing industries and fill gaps in the functionality of Southco’s previous line-up.

Southco is a global designer and manufacturer of engineered access solutions for transportation and industrial applications, medical equipment, data centres and more.
