quarter turn locks

IP65 quarter-turn padlockable wing handle for enclosures from FDB Panel Fittings

This IP65 wing handle is a pre-assembled quarter-turn latch in AISI 316 stainless steel, designed to accept a standard padlock for enclosure security.

It is suited for outdoor applications where a padlock can provide a good level of security and perhaps convenient digital code locking, while the IP65 latch ensures suitable closure. Applications include wall mounted enclosures and small cabinets in a wide range of industrial situations.

This quarter-turn wing knob is available ex-stock for same-day despatch from our FDB Online store.

FDB Insert key latches for specialist cabinets and enclosures

Quarter-turn latches are ubiquitous on industrial cabinets and enclosures, often with insert keys for low level security purposes. We are delighted to offer an extensive range of these latches and matching keys.

Many types are available, such as the double-bit, female square, male square, hexagonal, triangular, Daimler Benz, Crown type and Crescent Czech. These keys are produced in hard wearing zinc-die or black polyamide and may be provided with customer logo for batch quantities. Standard latches and keys are available from the FDB Online Store at www.fdbonline.co.uk.

 

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.
