L handles

FDB Insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Under the present circumstances we are happy to be able to offer our Rocfast “home delivery” service – a complete specification and logistics package that saves time, money and mistakes by guiding our customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

This Rocfast 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. The FDB 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 their 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 – the service is accessible online or by phone by contacting us here.

New DIRAK cabinet L-handle from FDB Panel Fittings

A new enclosure handle in traditional L format is an unusual event, so this latest DIRAK offering from FDB Panel Fittings is to be welcomed as it brings the concept up to date by incorporating many features in one simple product. Easy and precise height adjustment of the latching cam enables correct fitment with square threaded rod to engage single or 3-point cams. Stainless steel construction with mirror finish provides corrosion resistance and robust service life. IP65 sealing allows for use in indoor or outdoor environments and the concealed padlock feature enables secure closure in all situations.

Gary Miles, M.D. at FDB Panel Fittings explains that “in order to be able to use the L-handle for padlocking in a more versatile manner and to increase both the flexibility as well as the operating comfort, DIRAK have been able to expand the previous properties with a specific benefit. As of now, we offer a new L-handle for padlock with a square threaded rod. This enables a precise adaptation of the height adjustment of cams with variably adjustable catches for standard cams.”

Standard fitment is with rear mounted nut and screw or 5mm dia. carriage bolts through the escutcheon.
