New Pinet aluminium profile hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

Specialist cabinets deserve specialist hinges like these new T5 aluminium profile items in a classic “piano-style” of 60mm, 90mm or 120mm length with spring-assisted operation, which comes in three different levels of force rating.

Clear or black anodized finishes suit industry, office or specialist vehicle situations, or other general environments where their design aesthetic suits the installation. Fixing is by means of 3.5mm dia. pre-drilled holes.

It seems that every company in the UK and beyond is working on a recovery plan – and we at FDB can help – our team of experienced sales/admin people have been working hard to ensure that our customers get all the panel fitting hardware that you need. We have in fact been very busy – perhaps because other suppliers have not been able to support normal service – or perhaps because we try so hard to make customers lives easy!

We believe it is probably because we deal with many major manufacturers and have our Rocfast assembly/logistics package in place, that our team here are so skilled at providing extra-ordinary service, which can support your recovery plan. So whatever your requirements in terms of specialist enclosure or cabinet hardware – or mains power earth protection – please do check out our Online store or contact us direct – we would love to talk to you.

Pinet stainless steel friction hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

The humble hinge is constantly being developed and upgraded to ensure that specialist enclosure or cabinet makers have the right component whatever the application. A good example is the new Pinet range  – in this case their new dual-function 301 Stainless Steel torque/friction variants to help regulate door opening/closing with a torque or friction function.

These 85mm long hinges feature constant torque/friction with temperature stable characteristics in a “gull wing” design which raises the pivot for easier operation. Fixing is by 6.3mm pre-drilled holes, with hinge pins sealed by polyethylene caps.
