Here at FDB Panel Fittings – the name says it all – we specialise in panel fittings – otherwise referred to as enclosure hardware – hence the theme of “panel fittings for every enclosure” covering probably the UK’s largest range of locks, hinges, handles, cable management support systems, and accessories for virtually all industrial applications. Our extensive stock and Online store deliver top international brands such as DIRAK, EMKA, PINET, Weston Body Hardware, Gold and Wassal, Lowe and Fletcher, on urgent delivery backed with our Rocfast assembly and logistics package which ensures that you get the right components,  correctly assembled, ready to fit to your enclosure, in the pack type/size you want, at the location of your choice.

Under the banner of our Rocfast brand we are frequently able to achieve significant reductions in purchasing/admin time and effort with our well proven “Just in time” service for all those low value but critical components. This means just one order, one invoice, one payment and the components on the line when needed. Contact us to discuss your Rocfast needs.

Shop fitting fasteners from FDB Panel Fittings

Among other places the FDB Panel Fittings range of fasteners find application in shop fitting manufacture, not only quarter-turn locks and swinghandles in checkout islands but also quick-fix/release fasteners around the display section of stores where they may be used to hold price indicators, product cards and special offers. For cupboards and storage space at the checkout rapid keyless access is provided with wing handles, while triangular key or cylinder locks are also typical – for more security digital combination locks may be preferred.

Elsewhere, captive Snapline connectors and push-fit fasteners with tool or toolless operation are suited to widespread use in stores generally and can be found at the FDB Online Store available ex-stock for urgent delivery.
