Corner hinge from FDB Panel Fittings

This new DIRAK high load capacity corner hinge offers specialist panel builders a simple way to quickly and effectively mount heavy doors with 180° opening and a lift-off facility.

The Pr04 corner hinge suits surface mounted doors where an external visible installation is appropriate. The hinge is a substantial 92mm length manufactured in zinc-die with stainless steel hinge pin for robust operation and longevity in industrial environments where electrical controls, power distribution/ management, HVAC or other equipment is housed.

New DIRAK lift-off hinge concept from FDB Panel Fittings

The team here at FDB Panel Fittings have found that hinge solutions for construction of electrical and 19” industrial cabinets require a high degree of design flexibility in combination with stability and security during operation. It was from this close relationship with the specialist panel industry that the new “pop and click” lift-off door hinge was developed. Not only is fitting and removal toolless and remarkably quick, providing easy door removal, but it also retains the hinge pin – so no more having to keep track of fiddly pins.

Hinge release is readily achieved with complete security of the installation by virtue of an innovative design which features a finger slide mechanism, which once released then requires the door to be opened 30° before the hinge permits the door to be removed.

Construction is zinc-die and steel for rugged service – while the hinge offers a full 180° opening even on side-by-side mounted enclosures. It suits industry standard door designs with 25mm returns.
