Cabinet Keys from FDB

Our Online Store has a wide range of keys in metal and polyamide suitable for all general purpose quarter turn locks and handles for specialist cabinets and enclosures, such as quarter turns, L and T handles, swinghandles etc. We have crescent, food/medical, multi-key, polyamide and zinc die to suit all types of industrial situations.

Clip-on sealing profiles for enclosures from FDB Panel Fittings

EPDM and NBR extruded sealing profiles provide enclosure gasket solutions for specialist panel builders.

These clip-on hollow sections enable quick and effective protection from dust and water to be achieved with the simple expedient of pushing the section onto the frame profile or inner door edge. Construction is of EPDM or NBR (oil resistant) bonded onto a spring steel spine.

Sizes of our ex-stock sealing strips range from 8mm to 13mm width sections and are available tested to UL standards – UL 94 HB. 50m coils are listed at the FDB Online store for ex-stock same-day despatch.

FDB telescopic stays for enclosure doors

It is interesting just how many types of door and panel stays are called for in the specialist enclosure industry – for example we have adjustable, telescopic, stainless steel, vibration proof, wind stop, cover stays and eyelet cable restrictors all available at our Online store. Sizes vary from 100mm to 710mm and materials are steel and in stainless steel.

A parallel range of gas struts is available to order and further information can be viewed at our Knowledge base here.

Mounting can be at the top of a door or at the base – for horizontal lids mounting is at the sides. Stays with positive stops are used where the door is to be held open for an extended period while work is carried out – whereas a simple extension stop is useful for doors in windy conditions or to restrict the momentum of heavy doors so that they do not damage their hinges or adjacent panels.
