Modular Solutions for Rear Compartment Latches

Kiekert offers the optimum solution in modular closing systems for rear compartments and liftgates. The key to the advancement lies in our advanced NRC platform (new rear compartment). They are suitable for more than just the highly variable demands for the vehicle rear compartment area. In accordance with our global strategy, they also fulfill the individual demands of all regions, markets and vehicle segments. Therefore, as the leader in automobile closing system technology, we are writing the next chapter of a success story that will span decades.

With the fully modular construction based on the NRC platform, Kiekert offers vehicle manufacturers a large number of variants to cover market needs specific to each region. Individual customer requests are fulfilled "as standard" – with flexible design of the installation space and interfaces, with release at the push of a button, with additional comfort from premium products that have electrical/mechanical closing function (integrated into the latch or modularly, or as a power striker). We supply more variants for special markets, such as a fluorescent interior release system for opening the rear compartment in an emergency.
