Emergency open device for inside release

The new FDB 2-450 emergency-open device can be combined with swinghandles from the company's ex-stock range for use in walk-in storage situations such as cold rooms, refrigerated stores, data rooms or large cubicles.

The device works on rod lock systems to override the exterior swinghandle so providing an emergency exit for personnel accidentally shut inside the storage area.

Further information on FDB Panel Fittings products and services may be found on the company's website and the latest information and news can be found on the FDB blog (www.panelfittings.co.uk). Otherwise, readers could follow developments by viewing videos at www.youtube.com/fdbpanelfittings.
