Dirak stainless steel compression latch from FDB

This new DIRAK compression latch meets the common need for a flush latch with compression/anti-vibration characteristics often found in rail transport, HVAC and furniture applications. The 7-086 and 7-087 provide discrete closure with visual indicator.

Both variants offer 6mm of gasket compression in a corrosion-resistant stainless steel mechanism which accommodates 1.8 to 22mm thickness doors dependent on choice of two housing lengths. This permits use of doors in steel, wood, fiberglass, synthetics and compound sandwich materials to match the style of panelling or other decorative features.

The 7-086 allows for cam depth adjustment by use of selected cranked cams, whereas notably the 7-087 provides for additional depth adjustment of the tab by virtue of a toolless knurled knob on a threaded shaft enabling cam adjustment to accommodate especially deep frames.

Inserts may be selected from all common options including square, triangular, double bar, conical square, in various sizes to suit corporate convention.

New toolless assembly quarter-turn latch from FDB to IP69K

We have tracked the growth in both availability and use of plastic type locks and seen a substantial benefit where extra strong glass reinforced plastic such as polyamide can frequently offer comparable performance to zinc die, and sometimes even stainless steel dependent on application – with great savings in cost.

These high strength engineering plastics are often indistinguishable from zinc die but often the precision of the injection moulding process permits the realisation of improved design both functionally and in terms of usability.
