quarter turn locks and latches

Quarter turn locks and latches – or “quarter turns”as they are sometimes known are the mainstay of our panel fittings industry with an increasing interest in IP65 rated units – as reflected by the extensive stock and availability at our Online store. Typically IP65 and lower ratings in polyamide or zinc die are appropriate but we are being asked more and more for stainless steel – which we also have. IP65 1/4 turn box rapid locks from FDB Panel Fittings

Of course there is no better way to check out these 1/4 turn access fittings than to go and look – so please do so here.
