Smooth operation with new slide shoe

In a novel touch of detail design panel fittings specialist FDB can make the operation of many cabinet locks really much smoother with the application of a simple slide shoe for cams.

The two-part plastic shoe fits easily over many standard lock cams for single and multi-point locking systems, thus maximising gasket pull-down while minimising the scraping effect on a cabinet frame, with the operator benefit of an easier smoother mechanism.

Features include tool-less assembly with a positive locking design and the slide shoe can also be retro-fitted with due attention to clamping of door gaskets. Its sliding properties have been proved in laboratory tests of 20,000 cycles and its electrical insulation properties further enhance the safety of equipment housings.
