As specialist distributors here at FDB we take great pride in our relationships with top brands of Panel Fittings for cabinets and enclosures- This is exemplified by our status with DIRAK as their main UK distributor and a key part of their global service network – and by the many long standing and close relationships we have with companies such as EMKA, and Giussani, – also Western Body Hardware, Lowe & Fletcher, Southco, Gold and Wassall, Pinet,  Ronis, and Industrilas.

IP65 1/4 turn locks with integral finger pull handle from FDB Panel FittingsThese ongoing relationships help us to provide the best, most appropriate products and most efficient service possible for our customers while feeding into our own Rocfast branded assembly/logistics program – so we were delighted recently to have the opportunity of technical training with both EMKA – focusing on their extensive specialist hinge program – and with Giussani on their locks/handles and locking handles – see here for details at our Online store – in addition we had a great time with their tech teams and learned a lot that we hope to pass on to customers in due course.

For more on this and on how we can help you with your panel fittings requirements please contact our enthusiastic sales team who are keen to make use of their latest training expertise!

Rocfast Panel Fittings for every enclosure from FDBWe hear quite a lot about re-shoring of manufacturing to the UK, Europe and the US – and certainly from the interest and business levels we see reported at exhibitions and the trade media this seems to be a time of growth for UK manufacturing companies – who are often now stretched to increase output on the same staffing levels – and this is where our Rocfast assembly and logistics program can come to the rescue – by speeding specification, dealing with assembly and packaging followed by delivery direct to production facility or installation site worldwide.

Our Rocfast team can effectively support the connection between design, purchasing and production by dealing with the detail of your panel fittings needs – saving time, money and mistakes.

The Rocfast program focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands – it 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. This specialist service program can efficiently deal with modern modular component systems or traditional single kit formats and with one-off or scheduled program deliveries as well as separate packaging of locks/backnuts/keys etc to suit logistical requirements. Where required complete fitting kits can be supplied including lock/s, hinges, gasket, and with lock cylinders+keys forwarded to a separate destination if desired.

Typically this could involve a careful investigation of the specification and supply parameters so that for example a suitable assembly of ¼ turn camlock, budget lock or stainless steel lock might be identified – coupled with perhaps a piano hinge or internal weld-on hinges – packed together with a precut length of clip on sealing profile – with packs to be delivered in batch quantities.

Contact us to discuss your assembly and logistics requirements.

The Rocfast Program from FDB Panel Fittings with SNAPLINE enclosure locksWe were delighted recently to find that our Rocfast program, combined with the novel D-SNAP technology, enabled rapid on-site enclosure lock changes with substantial saving in time and money for one enterprising customer.

The SNAPLINE series of zinc die or polyamide bodied locks with adjustable L/R 90° operation clips securely into a standard rectangular cut out with many different varieties available so that it was possible to accommodate varying pre and post commissioning security requirements.

Rocfast specification and logistics complimented the flexibility of this technology by ensuring the right locks and keys could be delivered to the appropriate site at the right time.

This process was found to save multiple site visits and time consuming unscrewing, followed by re-screwing of traditional enclosure lock bodies.

So you can understand that we are proud to offer the Rocfast service which matches technology, assembly and logistics to optimise project needs.
