This means that we are in a position to help smooth availability problems for locks, hinges, latches, sealing and handles, where they arise in our post Brexit and continuing Covid environment. We see that UK manufacturing industry overall has rebounded close to pre-Covid levels in many sectors, and that some sectors have increased considerably because of the changes we have all experienced – here at FDB Panel Fittings and FDB Electrical we are committed to serving our customers – going that extra mile to help your business run smoothly.

So if you are in a health related production role, construction or vehicles, do view our Online shop for urgent delivery or contact us to talk to a real human being – ask to talk to us about our Rocfast lock assembly and logistics program which can save you time and deliver the right hardware direct to your site ready for installation.

Welcome to our online store.


Featuring a wide range of products from FDB Panel Fittings, we have designed our online store to provide you with a speedy means of viewing, selecting and purchasing all your enclosure and cabinet panel fittings requirements:



However help is always available if required, via the on-line “contact us” button or if you would prefer, by ‘phone or email.

Most items are generally ex-stock subject to quantity and prior sales.

Specials and certain non-stock items are marked accordingly.

The new and novel Giussani M5R T handle provides enhanced security with protection against accidental opening of cabinets, enclosures, storage lockers etc. which may be subject to vibration or sudden bumps, perhaps on trucks or trains.

The patented internal mechanism is set when the ¼ turn handle is pushed in and locked. It is then released by unlocking which allows the T to be pulled out and turned to open the cabinet door.

As specialist distributors here at FDB we take great pride in our relationships with top brands of Panel Fittings for cabinets and enclosures- This is exemplified by our status with DIRAK as their main UK distributor and a key part of their global service network – and by the many long standing and close relationships we have with companies such as EMKA, and Giussani, – also Western Body Hardware, Lowe & Fletcher, Southco, Gold and Wassall, Pinet,  Ronis, and Industrilas.

IP65 1/4 turn locks with integral finger pull handle from FDB Panel FittingsThese ongoing relationships help us to provide the best, most appropriate products and most efficient service possible for our customers while feeding into our own Rocfast branded assembly/logistics program – so we were delighted recently to have the opportunity of technical training with both EMKA – focusing on their extensive specialist hinge program – and with Giussani on their locks/handles and locking handles – see here for details at our Online store – in addition we had a great time with their tech teams and learned a lot that we hope to pass on to customers in due course.
