Spring loaded slam cam from FDB for cylinder locks, handles and inserts

Our latest offering is a very helpful spring loaded lock cam from sales partners DIRAK. The 7-076 tab provides a secure spring loaded slam function so that doors and covers may be simply shut closed and locked in one simple operation. The slam cam is especially useful for self-closing doors and covers, ensuring that security is maintained when the operator leaves.

This slam cam fits existing quarter-turn locks or similar and can be used in conjunction with cylinder locks, as well as inserts. This means it is only possible to open the door with a key or insert tool. The lock is then reset so that when the door is slammed shut the mechanism is re-activated in a locked condition.

Vibration proof IP65/67 swinghandle from FDB Panel Fittings with anti-vandal construction

Our 2-103 Swinghandle offers IP65 or IP67 ingress protection with the added benefits of vibration and vandal resistance. These features make the 2-103 swinghandle especially suitable for road/rail and street furniture applications, as well as for outdoor utility projects.

Robust zinc die construction designed with minimal gaps provides deterrence against vandalism. The design also integrates a further magnetic lock cover for weather protection and an integrated spring release mechanism for the handle which is automatically released from the handle body, making it especially easy to operate even when wearing gloves.

The 2-103 is particularly robust in its construction which facilitates the use of high closure force gaskets for improved sealing.
