FDB Insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Under the present circumstances we are happy to be able to offer our Rocfast “home delivery” service – a complete specification and logistics package that saves time, money and mistakes by guiding our customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

This Rocfast program focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands – and is designed to take the hard work out of an order process that often requires specification of individual lock components and time consuming self-assembly prior to installation. The FDB expert team rapidly identify the optimum specification of components then order, assemble and deliver to site, to workshop or to metal former/subcontractor in line with their theme of providing “Panel Fittings for every Enclosure”.

The Rocfast service includes all ¼ turn favourites with appropriate keys, with IP rated sealing if required, with cams of all types, traditional L or T handles, swinghandles and compression locks as applicable – the service is accessible online or by phone by contacting us here.
