swinghandles

FDB enclosure and cabinet handles

On a day-to-day basis we tend to use the terms “enclosure” and “cabinet” almost interchangeably, but except in the generic sense that an enclosure is anything that encloses ( not very helpful) we are probably used to using “enclosure” to mean something medium sized to small eg wall mounting to plastic box – while “cabinet” is reserved for free standing or suites of  larger units – often around 1800 or 2000mm high.

The size difference of course has an effect on our choice of handle – in terms of style and function – hence we see quarter turn locks on enclosures and swinghandles used for cabinets but the actual choice is usually a bit more nuanced than that often depending on the pull down force required to achieve the desired degree of gasket sealing – hence L and T handles are still popular as are insert latches with large keys for extra leverage.

Whatever you decide on we have a handle to suit at our Online store.

FDB online shop includes IP65 stainless steel L and T handles

Electrical cabinet handles available from our Online Store include T and L styles, swinghandles and wingknobs plus paddle handles and grab handles – all the handles you might need in fact for a specialist electrical cabinet or enclosure.

Within the portfolio there are extra security items eg with multi key or padlock,  and others in stainless steel for wash down areas – bridge type pull handles augment the installation where required.
