lock assembly

Rocfast lock assembly from FDB Panel Fittings now offers up to IP67 sealing

Our ROCFAST assembly logistics program ensures that specialist panel builders get the right specification of lock or latch while saving time and saving cost. A call to our team here at Panel Fittings will take a customer through the multi step selection process of choosing the right sizes of components, right lock variant and right sealing option, perhaps compiling a fitting pack with hinges and gasket so that it can all be assembled and delivered where it is needed, when required.

See also our ROCFAST guides for when you want to browse through the process.

We take the stress and chore out of locks so all you have to do is fit them!

Rocfast lock assembly guide from FDB Panel Fittings

Our new Rocfast guide to lock assembly now available free from the links below is a how-to-do-it selection assistant from our respected experts in specialist cabinet and enclosure hardware.

Customers are walked through the logical process of determining which housing, insert, cam, cut-out, and/or cam adapter may be required for standard or extended body locks in common finishes and how to select the correct part number to ensure the desired part is ordered. Accessories such as handle inserts, dust caps and finger pulls, serrated lock washers and earth nuts are highlighted, as are slide shoes for cams which help provide a positive compression while reducing the friction and paint damage caused by constant operation.
