Safety quarter-turn lock seals to IP65

The range of stainless steel quarter-turn locks from FDB Panel Fittings has been further enhanced by the introduction of the 7-074 safety quarter-turn, which seals to IP65.

This product is suited to equipment access panels and enclosure doors for electrical controls or industrial electronic processors in applications where frequent wash-down or other safety considerations are important. IP65 sealing against dust and water is the norm for applications with these latches – as are wet and corrosive environments where stainless steel hardware is a standard fitment.

Features such as low profile offering a smooth surface and the spring loaded shutter keeping out material ingress are standard. The 7-074 comes with 6mm square insert as standard and spring loaded shutter which minimises dirt traps.
