Panel Fittings for every enclosure from FDB

For over 40 years we at FDB Panel Fittings have taken pride in developing a specialist service for the supply of panel and electrical enclosure hardware (locks, hinges, handles, enclosure gasketing, cable management and accessories) to the metal/plastic fabrication industries including panel builders and OEMs – in that time we and our customers have experienced the ups and downs of our world economy – but none more dramatic than the Covid 19 pandemic – and perhaps never more importantly than in this phase when long supply chains are no longer beneficial and are being restructured to more local sources – we are here to help you.

We are proud to provide probably the UK’s largest range of locks, hinges, handles and accessories for virtually all industrial applications. This supply process continuously focuses on our ability to provide a friendly personal service based on detailed product knowledge and experience with an extensive product range. Encompassing everything from cable management support systems to cabinet hinges, enclosure gasketing and locking systems which include many stainless steel variants and anti-vandal handle designs – with our extensive stock-holding we expect to deliver most items direct from our warehouse. See our Online Store for your urgent needs.

At this time when staffing levels are low our Rocfast program saves time, money and mistakes by guiding customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

The Rocfast assembly and logistics 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. Our 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 our 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. Contact us to receive your Rocfast service.

FDB channel fitting gasket

In the world of small enclosures, wall fitting boxes and similar there is little space and little fitting time so gasket profiles which slot in or stick on are often the first choice – they are time proven solutions to simple sealing requirements and are available ex-stock on quick delivery from our Online store in a variety of sizes. Generally speaking the push in type is a close fit into a channel on the door ( but could be on the frame) and seals onto a flat face while the self adhesive closed cell foam self adhesive foam from FDBsection is usually located on the inside of the door so that it seals onto a lip formed in the body/frame of the enclosure giving it the benefit of being protected by the lip of the door. Both are excellent solutions for many industrial situations.

FDB enclosure door gasket seals

Sealing of enclosures or cabinet doors is made simple with our range of clip-fit, push-fit and self-adhesive sections. These specialist profiles in EPDM, NBR, neoprene and PVC offer a quickly installed solution to maintaining good IP protection for panel builders, equipment manufacturers and vehicle constructors.

Clip-on hollow section gaskets enable inexpensive and effective protection from dust and water to be achieved with the simple expedient of pushing the section onto the frame profile or inner door edge. Construction is of EPDM or NBR (oil resistant) bonded onto a spring steel spine.

Sizes of FDB sealing strips range from 8mm to 13mm width sections and are available tested to UL standards – UL 94 HB. 50m coils are listed at the FDB Online store for ex-stock same-day despatch.

Other sections are designed to be retained within channels or for self-adhesion to painted surfaces, while edge protectors and window profiles with expanding filter sections enable simple edge covering and window installations for inspection of machine settings and processes.

Where electromagnetic compatibility is necessary variants are available to combine EMC with dust and water sealing.

Alongside these sections we have issued a Knowledge Base data sheet to make selection of seals and gaskets easier. This downloadable document (available at www.fdbonline.co.uk/collections/knowledge-base) covers the standard styles of self-gripping seals, edge protection and rectangular section gaskets. Additional information is provided on window seals, channel seals and round profiles, together with tabulated performance data for typical materials.
