Rocfast

Rocfast lock assembly from FDB Panel Fittings now offers up to IP67 sealing

Our ROCFAST assembly logistics program ensures that specialist panel builders get the right specification of lock or latch while saving time and saving cost. A call to our team here at Panel Fittings will take a customer through the multi step selection process of choosing the right sizes of components, right lock variant and right sealing option, perhaps compiling a fitting pack with hinges and gasket so that it can all be assembled and delivered where it is needed, when required.

See also our ROCFAST guides for when you want to browse through the process.

We take the stress and chore out of locks so all you have to do is fit them!

FDB enclosure door gasket seals

Sealing of enclosures or cabinet doors is made simple with our range of clip-fit, push-fit and self-adhesive sections. These specialist profiles in EPDM, NBR, neoprene and PVC offer a quickly installed solution to maintaining good IP protection for panel builders, equipment manufacturers and vehicle constructors.

Clip-on hollow section gaskets enable inexpensive and effective protection from dust and water to be achieved with the simple expedient of pushing the section onto the frame profile or inner door edge. Construction is of EPDM or NBR (oil resistant) bonded onto a spring steel spine.

Sizes of FDB sealing strips range from 8mm to 13mm width sections and are available tested to UL standards – UL 94 HB. 50m coils are listed at the FDB Online store for ex-stock same-day despatch.

Other sections are designed to be retained within channels or for self-adhesion to painted surfaces, while edge protectors and window profiles with expanding filter sections enable simple edge covering and window installations for inspection of machine settings and processes.

Where electromagnetic compatibility is necessary variants are available to combine EMC with dust and water sealing.

Alongside these sections we have issued a Knowledge Base data sheet to make selection of seals and gaskets easier. This downloadable document (available at www.fdbonline.co.uk/collections/knowledge-base) covers the standard styles of self-gripping seals, edge protection and rectangular section gaskets. Additional information is provided on window seals, channel seals and round profiles, together with tabulated performance data for typical materials.
