Door stays Online


It is easy to overlook the need for cover stays, wind Stops, telescopic stays and associated accessories – which is why we here at FDB Panel Fittings have thought of them for you – our Online selection includes steel and stainless steel to keep doors and covers propped open – to enable installers and service engineers to work safely where gravity or windy conditions are a problem.

Small, long, right, left – from a simple eyelet device to an all singing and dancing wind stop with auto lock/release – in steel or stainless steel – we have an excellent range for urgent delivery at our Online store where you will also find all the other hardware you might need for a specialist enclosure to suit indoor or outdoor environments.

It is interesting just how many types of door and panel stays are called for in the specialist enclosure industry – for example we have adjustable, telescopic, stainless steel, vibration proof, wind stop, cover stays and eyelet cable restrictors all available at our Online store. Sizes vary from 100mm to 710mm and materials are steel and in stainless steel.

A parallel range of gas struts is available to order and further information can be viewed at our Knowledge base here.

Mounting can be at the top of a door or at the base – for horizontal lids mounting is at the sides. Stays with positive stops are used where the door is to be held open for an extended period while work is carried out – whereas a simple extension stop is useful for doors in windy conditions or to restrict the momentum of heavy doors so that they do not damage their hinges or adjacent panels.
