FDB Insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Quarter-turn latches are ubiquitous on industrial cabinets and enclosures, often with insert keys for low level security purposes. We are delighted to offer an extensive range of these latches and matching keys.

Many types are available, such as the double-bit, female square, male square, hexagonal, triangular, Daimler Benz, Crown type and Crescent Czech. These keys are produced in hard wearing zinc-die or black polyamide and may be provided with customer logo for batch quantities. Standard latches and keys are available from the FDB Online Store at www.fdbonline.co.uk.

 

As specialists in panel fittings for cabinets and enclosures we deal with premium manufacturers and stock a wide range of lines for same day dispatch – see our Online shop or call us direct.

 

Spring loaded slam cam from FDB for cylinder locks, handles and inserts

Our latest offering is a very helpful spring loaded lock cam from sales partners DIRAK. The 7-076 tab provides a secure spring loaded slam function so that doors and covers may be simply shut closed and locked in one simple operation. The slam cam is especially useful for self-closing doors and covers, ensuring that security is maintained when the operator leaves.

This slam cam fits existing quarter-turn locks or similar and can be used in conjunction with cylinder locks, as well as inserts. This means it is only possible to open the door with a key or insert tool. The lock is then reset so that when the door is slammed shut the mechanism is re-activated in a locked condition.

Giussani reprogrammable quarter-turn lock from FDB Panel Fittings

One of our latest introductions is the Giussani reprogrammable quarter-turn lock which provides users with the flexibility to update keys or switch users so that staff changes or lost keys may be easily accommodated. With 9,791 possible combinations the reprogrammable lock offers a high degree of security as the lock can easily be reset without the need to replace the lock itself.

Reprogramming makes use of a special programming key supplied which is then retained by the supervisor.

Typical applications include personal storage and high staff turnover areas in office or public access areas. For additional protection a large anti-vandal escutcheon is available – as are replacement lock cylinders. For details please contact us.
