FDB Quarter turn insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Quarter turn latches are core to the idea of enclosure security and access control – these simple latches and locks have been the mainstay for closure of wall mounted cabinets and enclosures for many years and as such we carry a wide selection to IP55, IP65, IP67 and IP69 on an ex-stock basis and available to order from our Online Store.

Vandal resistant pignose bung lock in stainless steel from FDB Panel FittingsAs well as simple insert latches in reinforced plastic and zinc die, we have stainless steel clean styled pieces for wash down hygiene situations and others with specialist features such as “pignose” vandal resistant security and others with spring loaded shutter plates to exclude ingress of dirt from the mechanism.

Stainless steel compression latchesCompression locks and latches are gaining in popularity for their enhanced IP security and their vibration resistance, which makes them suitable for use on specialist vehicles and railway rolling stock, as well as achieving greater gasket pull down performance. Compression locks and latches come in a variety of formats including industry standard quarter turn and recessed lever designs – given their focus on high degrees of sealing and the likely environmental application  many compression latch locks are required in stainless steel – such as for use on hygiene/wash down equipment where the whole design concept is centred around high levels of functionality.
