FDB compression lock

For over 40 years we at FDB Panel Fittings have taken pride in developing a specialist service for the supply of panel and electrical enclosure hardware (locks, hinges, handles, enclosure gasketing, cable management and accessories) to the metal/plastic fabrication industries including panel builders and OEMs – this includes of course our Online shop for quick and simple delivery.

We are proud to provide probably the UK’s largest range of locks, hinges, handles and accessories for virtually all industrial applications. This supply process continuously focuses on our ability to provide a friendly personal service based on detailed product knowledge and experience with an extensive product range. Encompassing everything from cable management support systems to cabinet hinges, enclosure gasketing and locking systems which include many stainless steel variants and anti-vandal handle designs – with our extensive stock-holding we expect to deliver most items direct from our warehouse.

Built to order – built to last – our Rocfast program saves time, money and mistakes by guiding customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

This program focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands – and is designed to take the hard work out of an order process that often requires specification of individual lock components and time consuming self-assembly prior to installation.


Lock range from FDB

Our Rocfast enclosure lock assembly and logistics service includes all our 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 provide to site 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 schedule 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.

This Rocfast program has proven successful in saving time, money and mistakes by guiding customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

Rocfast lock assembly from FDB Panel Fittings

Quarter turn locks are such a day to day item in the enclosure industry that we can sometimes loose sight of the sheer variety of components available to meet different situations – for example we have a large selection of lock bodies, cylinders, cams, keys etc listed at our online store but there are many more in manufacturers catalogues and it can take a real expert to find their way through the whelter of possibilities. This is where our Rocfast assembly and logistics service comes in and is proving increasingly popular for the way we are able to simplify the purchasing process by getting the specification right for the job while saving customers time and money.
