Multi point rod locking systems from FDB

Multi point rod locking systems – sometimes called espagnolette arrangements – are a mainstream layout for closure of larger cabinets and generally give a three point pull down of the door gasket as well as securing against unauthorised opening. Typically the rods are operated by a locking handle such as a swinghandle or traditional L/T type where the lock mechanism provides the third and central closing latch. Rod systems can be used on larger doors or access panels eg over a metre on a side where security of closure is important or where flexibility of the door requires support by tying in to the cabinet frame. Rod locking systems are available in component form from our Online Store – or contact our team for advice.

FDB bridge handles

Traditional bridge handles from our Online store provide easy one-handed operation of doors, draws, access panels, cases and instruments with comfortable feel and are aesthetically suited to industrial or office-style environments.

Simple fitment is achieved quickly with screw fixing at either end as open front mounting or with decorative inserts, as well as the rear mounting options.

These grab or “bow” drawer type handles for opening or carrying are available in polyamide, steel-chrome or stainless steel, depending on requirements.
