Shop fitting fasteners from FDB Panel Fittings

Among other places the FDB Panel Fittings range of fasteners find application in shop fitting manufacture, not only quarter-turn locks and swinghandles in checkout islands but also quick-fix/release fasteners around the display section of stores where they may be used to hold price indicators, product cards and special offers. For cupboards and storage space at the checkout rapid keyless access is provided with wing handles, while triangular key or cylinder locks are also typical – for more security digital combination locks may be preferred.

Elsewhere, captive Snapline connectors and push-fit fasteners with tool or toolless operation are suited to widespread use in stores generally and can be found at the FDB Online Store available ex-stock for urgent delivery.

2 stage hinges for flush doors from FDB Panel Fittings

These novel EMKA 1042/3 two stage hinges provide a full 180° door opening for removable flush doors on large or small cabinets, with two sizes to suit industrial enclosures and electrical housings.

The 1042/3 hinges provide this unusual facility for flush doors and are concealed within the cabinet using internal weld-on mounting, which combined with a flush/insert door design minimises opportunities for vandal attack while presenting a smooth aesthetic appearance. They enable simple door demounting by virtue of their easily removed hinge pins. Each hinge also has a second spring loaded hinge pin – once the door has been opened 90° it may then be opened a further 90° using the second pivot point.

180 degree polyamide hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

We have recently introduced EMKA 1110 polyamide hinges to our range. These 180° quick fit hinges permit rapid door mounting and demount by use of a removable hinge pin which also locks the hinge into place. They are considered suitable for batch or continuous production of specialist enclosures.

1110 hinges are available to suit 16mm or 25mm flange returns on lay-on cabinet door designs which require only a very simple cut out to enable instant positioning of the door component. The frame half of the hinge uses a simple screw/nut assembly which when used with 2D nuts further permits detailed door alignment.
