cabinet hinges

Here at FDB Panel Fittings, 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.

As an integral division of FDB Electrical Ltd – with a background in the specialist panel building industry – we naturally grew our business together with panel builders serving the controls industry – but this soon developed into a wider marketplace so that we are equally at home with the sourcing and supply of the more specialist products for a huge variety of industrial and defence related applications. For instance, we are proud to have been able to supply locking devices used on such diverse applications as London’s Millennium Wheel and the Royal Navy’s fleet of T45 destroyers.

Under the banner of our Rocfast brand we are frequently able to achieve significant reductions in purchasing/admin time and effort with our well proven “Just in time” service for all those low value but critical components. This means just one order, one invoice, one payment and the components on the line when needed.

Our simple ethos of “quality products, quality service” has been the cornerstone of our success over very many years and countless satisfied customers worldwide can testify to the excellent level of service and technical back-up provided by our dedicated and resourceful customer service team.

New from our Online store are the PINET 90° opening stainless steel and steel hinges for concealed installation – with two options available, the 3520 with pins and links in 430 stainless and the 3625 in 316L stainless.

The new design offers tough corrosion-resistant parallel link functionality for nested or surface-mount doors – LH or RH in horizontal or vertical installation. These compact hinges are suitable for steel or wood/composite doors and enable easy opening in industrial or office/domestic cupboards, cabinets and enclosures.

These new PINET 7 axis multi-link hinges from our online store offer concealed and sprung door opening for overlay and nested doors. Their spring counterbalance allows for easy operation while the multi-link design ensures accurate and positive closure.

This new design hinge is fitted internally to the frame/door corner from where it offers a 110° door opening with positional hold in the open and closed modes by virtue of the sprung mechanism. This means that door latching is not necessary unless specifically required. Un-sprung variants will generally require latching and do not provide positive open/close hold.

The new DIRAK hinge Pr01 now launched by our Panel Fittings team marks an innovative approach to the time-saving installation of IP65/67 hinging for specialist enclosures. DIRAK believe that to meet the requirements of industrial applications, panel hinges must be sturdy, robust and durable. Additionally, they should offer simple assembly, high strength and flexible usage. Consequently, for these applications they have developed a novel new hinge with fastening bracket, which ensures a precise fit in the rectangular cutouts and allows for easy installation using only one screw per side. Additionally, the seals on the hinge provide protection against the ingress of water and dust.

The stepped mounting surface on the back of each hinge half allows for easy alignment in the cutout and the gasketed fastening brackets can be tightened with a single screw, allowing for easy hinge positioning. This 180° opening hinge for nested doors (LH/RH) has been designed to require only one screw on each hinge flap. The hinge is moulded to fit rectangular cutouts on the door and frame with clamping backplate incorporating a gasket seal and positive location which enables a degree of adjustment and uses a single screw either side to clamp securely.

The design is configured to fit doors of thickness up to 4mm using the standard M6x12mm screws supplied. With longer screws then thicker panels may be accommodated. The Pr01 series is available in 50x40mm, 54x50mm and 60x60mm sizes.
