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.

Panel Fittings and accessories for every enclosure from FDB

We keep adding to our accessories package so it is worth checking what is available – you never know when you might need an adapter, a lock anti-rotation device, a finger pull, a ball catch or a slide shoe.

Maybe you only have simple well known requirements for most of your cabinets – but when you need a drawing pocket, knuckle cover, dust cap, slam latch or slide bolt – then we will be here.

Common needs often include door stays, magnetic catches and touch latches – so we have those – along with “C” clips, covers and serrated washers.

In fact if you are in the panel building business then we can provide what you need – and if you don’t see it at our Online shop then call or e-mail and we will check with our suppliers.

Front insert cage nuts for 19

Traditional rear insert cage nuts for 19″ racks or other punched rail mounting systems have been a mainstay of panel mounting for many years – now we have also introduced the Dirak  front insert cage nuts for even simpler and quicker assembly – M5, M6 and M8 sizes are available.

Rear mounting is fine where access is easy but this is often not the case and front insertion can save a lot of time where many nuts are required per rack – we offer two styles of front insert and one type of rear insert cage nuts.
