Quarter-turn lock range for industrial panel builders

FDB Panel Fittings now offers the full range of DIRAK quarter-turn locks for use as a locking mechanism in numerous applications. Quarter-turn locks are comprised of a housing, insert, and cam, with a wide range of assembly possibilities.

The DIRAK range includes over 30 standard and customised inserts in zinc die-cast, polyamide or stainless steel for rugged service in enclosures and cabinets for used in applications ranging from mechanical engineering to HVAC, medical device manufacture, data centres to energy distribution and environmental technology.

FDB Panel Fittings MD Gary Miles said: “In most applications, quarter-turns are the ideal solution to protect against unauthorized access; in some cases, we advise using both a quarter-turn and rod latch, which is why we carry extensive UK stock.

“We focus on the individual requirements of each specific industrial sector. For example, our sales partner DIRAK has created specially-designed, high-quality polished stainless-steel products to meet the strict hygienic standards of the food processing industry. Similarly, it has developed solutions for the transportation industry/sector which meet the vibration resistance and fire protection requirements.”
