New stainless steel hinge from DIRAK and FDB Panel Fittings

The specialist team at DIRAK have recently launched their new 180° stainless steel hinge for specialist cabinets where corrosion-resistance and robust service performance are defined requirements.

The new screw-on hinge in AISI 303 features integral M5 threads for internal screw fixing which both speeds up installation and enhances security.

Designed to fit industry standard 20mm surface-mounted door returns, this lift-off hinge will open to 180° for adjacent cabinets and 270° for single installations.

New from FDB Panel Fittings - DIRAK 3-point Cam Adapter for large cabinets

We are now able to offer the new 3-point zinc-die rod adapter from our sales partner DIRAK. This adapter enables a quick, low-cost solution to multi-point locking with centre-cam and double-rod mechanism for larger cabinets using UK traditional round rods with circlip retention.

Multi-point closure enhances sealing and security by assisting gasket pull-down and resisting forced entry at additional points.

This zinc-die adapter complements the existing DIRAK stainless steel version at lower cost. Both adapters suit the range of standard modular DIRAK handles with standard square shaft operation.

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.

DIRAK FDB IP65 swinghandle

The new DIRAK 3-149 swinghandle is a low-profile IP65 locking handle which facilitates fitment of flat rod multi-point closure systems.

This swinghandle/flat rod approach especially suits larger door cabinets which need the additional rigidity which they can offer to the door structure in its closed condition, thus aiding sealing and security.

These flat rod systems enable 2 or 3-point closure – even 4 or 5-point and more, by virtue of multiple brackets at intermediate points along each rod. This new 3-149 swinghandle provides pop-out handle operation with 1333 keyed lock cylinder for RH or LH mounting and incorporating an optional integral earthing clip.
