Hinges, locks, latches, handles

The Snap-Line range of hinges, locks, latches, handles, and other fasteners that allow tool-less assembly will be featured on the Dirak stand at the Fastening & Assembly Solutions exhibition at the RAF Museum, Cosford, on 30 April.

"This technology is a way for companies to save money and reduce inventory", says David Hayes, general manager, Dirak UK. "A visit to our stand will show how up to 90% of hardware installation time can be saved." Dirak also has introduced a new global website which features product and technical information on the systems that it designs and manufactures to provide "high-quality solutions for latching, hinging, and profile technology".

The 'Product Search' function on the website in the United Kingdom (www.dirak.co.uk) allows a user the find a product in three different ways. A 'Technical Advice' section provides a conversion feature to/from metric and Imperial measurements and industry standards, and by clicking on 'Sample Request' product samples can be requested to test in specific applications. A 'Download Centre provides CAD files, newsletters, catalogue pages, and product literature, and a 'What's New' section feature information on new products, enhancements, and company news.
