IP65 quarter-turn cabinet locking program from FDB Panel Fittings

Our new IP65 quarter-turn cabinet locking series provides a tool-less, snap-in time saving installation to fit industry standard mounting cut-outs.

The system can be modularly pre-assembled with any of 24 inserts and 70 cams for efficient new production or re-purposing of existing equipment with single or multi-point closure. The elegant design, with long escutcheon format where required, allows unusual cut-outs to be aesthetically concealed with a superior appearance.

The lock and escutcheon are moulded in 30% glass reinforced polyamide which is extremely rugged and durable, as well as halogen-free and flame resistant according to UL 94.

Unusually the 6-501 is offered in both vertical and horizontal configurations so that it can be used on upright cabinets and on wide control desks where the top angled surface of the desk also require secure closure.
