FDB stainless steel hygiene handle

The growth in availability of stainless steel hardware over recent years has allowed panel builders and installers to upgrade their specifications with more rugged components and with higher levels of IP sealing. Nowhere is this more true than with cabinet or enclosure handles such as those we carry in stock, which include specialist hygiene rated items for food etc wash down areas. Suitable also for other applications requiring IPs up to 67 and with compression technology for vibration resistance and increased gasket pull down they offer especially smooth styling and high performance.
