Stainless steel lock for food and clean room areas

A stainless steel quarter-turn lock just released by FDB Panel Fittings has some exciting features that ensure its suitability for food processing and electronic clean room assembly areas.

The easy to clean polished and rounded shape eliminates crevices that could trap debris, thus preventing accumulation of dirt and bacterial contamination by the use of conventional methods, including high pressure cleaning. There is a reduced risk of injuries and guaranteed germ free environment within the enclosure.

The new lock, designated 7-081, complies with Food and Drug Administration requirements and features special red silicone gasketing for easy identification. Additional features include electrical continuity by use of a grounding nut to protect users against static discharge. The wide variety of cams available ensures that there is high application flexibility and optimal fit to frame width. Locks can be delivered pre-assembled under FDB's RocFast brand package.
