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.
