IP65 quarter-turn padlockable wing handle for enclosures from FDB Panel Fittings

This IP65 wing handle is a pre-assembled quarter-turn latch in AISI 316 stainless steel, designed to accept a standard padlock for enclosure security.

It is suited for outdoor applications where a padlock can provide a good level of security and perhaps convenient digital code locking, while the IP65 latch ensures suitable closure. Applications include wall mounted enclosures and small cabinets in a wide range of industrial situations.

This quarter-turn wing knob is available ex-stock for same-day despatch from our FDB Online store.

Spring loaded slam cam from FDB for cylinder locks, handles and inserts

Our latest offering is a very helpful spring loaded lock cam from sales partners DIRAK. The 7-076 tab provides a secure spring loaded slam function so that doors and covers may be simply shut closed and locked in one simple operation. The slam cam is especially useful for self-closing doors and covers, ensuring that security is maintained when the operator leaves.

This slam cam fits existing quarter-turn locks or similar and can be used in conjunction with cylinder locks, as well as inserts. This means it is only possible to open the door with a key or insert tool. The lock is then reset so that when the door is slammed shut the mechanism is re-activated in a locked condition.
