Electrical protection units from FDB Electrical

The use of RCD electrical technology has become commonplace in all areas of building services where the safety and convenience of this type of protection is of great value – but RCDs and their “sister” MCBs often need to be housed in specialist enclosures which provide for the integration of a number of devices in a custom system. Here at FDB Electrical we have created  the FDB11 as a unit which installers can readily customise and which also provides for the use of multiple units in  a grid layout. The facilities offered by the FDB11 are especially of value in the industrial and institutional arenas where capacities of 40A to 63A  and up to 100A can be accomodated

  • General purpose RCD with overload and short circuit protection
  • Steel, surface mounting enclosure c/w knockouts (IP20)
  • Conforms to BS4293 (RCD); BSEN60898 (MCB)
  • IΔn: 20mA; 30mA or 100mA

Shop fitting fasteners from FDB Panel Fittings

Among other places the FDB Panel Fittings range of fasteners find application in shop fitting manufacture, not only quarter-turn locks and swinghandles in checkout islands but also quick-fix/release fasteners around the display section of stores where they may be used to hold price indicators, product cards and special offers. For cupboards and storage space at the checkout rapid keyless access is provided with wing handles, while triangular key or cylinder locks are also typical – for more security digital combination locks may be preferred.

Elsewhere, captive Snapline connectors and push-fit fasteners with tool or toolless operation are suited to widespread use in stores generally and can be found at the FDB Online Store available ex-stock for urgent delivery.

Data Centre panel fittings from FDB

Within securely protected Data Centres there is a need for low tech’ individual cabinet security, and elsewhere stand-alone Telco and data storage racks need their own individual protective locks.

For these situations our range of panel fittings provide a suitable solution where cylinder locks or digital code locks are considered appropriate. For many applications it will also be required to offer a good degree of vandal resistance for which many swinghandles and concealed hinges from the FDB range meet typical requirements. The Pignose Bung lock quarter-turn is suitable for smaller enclosures and the smooth designs of zinc die and stainless steel swinghandle are excellent for larger cabinets.

Companion fittings for mounting of screws and related equipment include traditional cage nuts and captive 19” fittings to suit standard uprights, also suitable of course to other cabinet widths. These and other FDB panel fixings enable rapid fitment and release of data storage devices with secure location – see also our Online shop for urgent delivery.
