T handles

For many years the traditional handle for cabinets had an “L” or a “T” configuration but these were often awkward and caught on clothing where there was limited space – such as in control rooms – and then the swinghandle was created and has in many ways become the “new normal”. It’s benefits of non-catching low profile and ergonomic leverage have streamlined specialist cabinet design and the modular approach that came along with it has greatly simplified high quality installations.

For our offerings of swinghandles to IP65 in zinc die and stainless steel please see our  Online Store

Under the present circumstances we are happy to be able to offer our Rocfast “home delivery” service – a complete specification and logistics package that saves time, money and mistakes by guiding our customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.

This Rocfast program focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands – and is designed to take the hard work out of an order process that often requires specification of individual lock components and time consuming self-assembly prior to installation. The FDB expert team rapidly identify the optimum specification of components then order, assemble and deliver to site, to workshop or to metal former/subcontractor in line with their theme of providing “Panel Fittings for every Enclosure”.

The Rocfast service includes all ¼ turn favourites with appropriate keys, with IP rated sealing if required, with cams of all types, traditional L or T handles, swinghandles and compression locks as applicable – the service is accessible online or by phone by contacting us here.

We are pleased to offer a wide range of handles (locking and non-locking) in zinc diecast, polyamide or stainless steel, including swing handles, lever and tee handles and wing handles – also a selection of bridge handles in various materials.

 

T handles – ( or Tee handles) are a traditional and comfortable way of operating latches with or without key locks. Generally a simple fit into a keyed hole and assembled with a back-nut to provide a cam or tab latch, they are available in zinc die, polyamide or stainless steel – many of them are compatible with multi point locking systems by using rod mechanisms to provide an additional two points of closure. This enhances security especially on large cabinet doors both in terms of sealing and preventing unauthorised opening – while still enabling single handed opening/closing.Round rods from FDB

T handles and Rod mechanisms can be found at our Online store – or please contact us to discuss your requirements.
