IP65 lock keeps its head down

An ultra-low profile IP65 quarter-turn lock from FDB Panel Fittings stands just 3mm above the door so eliminating the hazard of clothing entanglement.

Made from AISI 316l stainless steel, the 7-080 is ideal for equipment housings, electrical or electronic cabinets and enclosures in the food, pharmaceutical and marine industries where there is either frequent wash-down or adverse environmental conditions.

FDB complements its stainless latches with a full catalogue of fittings from hinges through handles to code entry locks, anti-bacterial finish hardware, standard L and T handles and electronic locking systems.
