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.
