New DIRAK Swinghandle Cam Mounting from FDB Panel Fittings

The new DIRAK Swinghandle system has been enhanced with the introduction of their 3-440 Bearing Plate RS bases. These intermediary mounting accessories enable use of swinghandles with a single point polyamide latching cam or alternatively with standard cam and multi-point rod locking if required.

Installation is quick and simple with initial clip attachment to the swinghandle base, then twin screw fastening for security and sealing.

These internal support plates secure the swinghandle through doors of 1mm up to 3mm thickness and provide 270° limitation with the locking position engaged at 90°.

The “type a” bearing plate incorporates a black polyamide cam, while “type b” uses standard cams or 3-point adapter for connection into a rod closure system.

The Rocfast service includes all ¼ turn favourites with appropriate keys, with IP rated sealing if required, with cams of all types, traditional L or T handles, swinghandles and compression locks as applicable – the service is accessible online or by phone by contacting us here.
