L handles

Traditional L handle from FDB

FDB Panel Fittings have added a sleek, robust non-locking L handle to their Online Store selection. The 1608 handle is ideal for simple low-security access or for use in combination with more complex closure systems.

Explained Gary Miles, M.D. at FDB Panel Fittings, “we have found that customers appreciate more and more the easy availability of items like the 1608 L handle on same-day despatch. It is astonishing where these products end up, from locker rooms to complex production and control systems all around the world – even on super yachts!”

The 1608 is a chrome finished zinc die unit with concealed fixing – it features an industry standard 8mm square spindle of 75mm length with 90° or 180° movement.

New large slam latch with inside safety release from FDB Panel Fittings

Our new large format slam latch is a purpose designed unit from Weston Body Hardware for large insulated enclosures such as cold stores or containerised units. The roller striker latch is surface mounted to preserve the integrity of the door with an internal punch-style emergency release. Importantly, the release “mushroom” features a fluorescent button for easy location in the event of inadvertent door closure.

The 270mm latch is suitable for flush fit or offset doors and is easy to operate, even with gloved hands. It offers a quick, positive, smooth and quiet action for especially heavy doors. Finish is high quality chrome.
