FDB multi-angle lid and door stay

It can be surprising sometimes just how many variants of a simple design are available – take the humble cover or door stay for example – we have in stock adjustable ones, telescopic ones, vibration proof types and wind stops – oh and steel or stainless steel. So whether for convenience or for health and safety reasons our stays can help the specialist panel builder support a door or prop a cover to enable safe access with a quick and simple locking mechanism. See our Online shop or contact us for more.

Roller cam from FDB Panel Fittings for quarter-turn locks

The new DIRAK 1-105 roller cam increases operator comfort and feel while protecting paintwork – protecting interior equipment from contamination, e.g. servers, caused by paint chipping or corrosion. The roller action offers lower friction and a soft plastic surface in place of the hard metal ramp of most cams which can cause paint damage and be difficult to close where high gasket forces are experienced.

The roller cam is depth adjustable over a 5mm range to enable a close fit to be achieved with all their inserts, swinghandles and multi-point latches which use an 8mm square drive screw.

Adjustable cam for quarter-turn latches from FDB Panel Fittings

The new DIRAK 7-077.01SL  is an adjustable cam to enable correct fit to be achieved on new enclosures or cabinets and to compensate for gasket set over time and is especially necessary where doors and covers are subject to ongoing vibration, so ensuring security of the installation.

This novel cam arrangement may be re-adjusted manually without tools and suits standard DIRAK quarter-turn latches or compression latches with 10mm threaded latch rods – it also accepts standard cams of varying depth.

The adjuster, in steel or stainless steel, is vibration proof and provides 0.25mm depth change per click.
