Customer programme has panel fittings with a twist

FDB Panel Fittings has announced its Rocfast customer service programme and said it saves time, money and mistakes by guiding engineers and buyers through specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics for enclosures. 

The FDB Rocfast programme focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands and is designed to take the hard work out of an order process that often requires specification of individual lock components, and time consuming self-assembly prior to installation. The expert team rapidly identifies the optimum specification of components then order, assemble and deliver to site, to workshop or to metal former/subcontractor, worldwide.

The Rocfast service includes all quarter turn locks with appropriate keys, with IP rated sealing if required, with cams of all types, traditional L or T handles, swing handles and compression locks as applicable.

As well as supplying standard latch inserts the company can also supply handle inserts, turning a standard quarter turn into a handle. This includes T-handles, L-handles, star knobs and wing knobs in various styles. For locks used in dusty environments the company can supply dust caps and finger pulls for easy opening of panels.

Accessories include serrated lock washers for applications where the securing nut may become loose, and earth (grounding) nuts which have sharp protrusions intended to cut through the painted coating on the metalwork to provide a good electrical connection.

The Rocfast assembly service provides specifiers with a quick and simple means of getting the exact quarter-turns they need, to the specification they choose, pre-assembled and delivered on time. There are many combinations so the company provides a guide to explain how to select the correct product code and to showcase the wide range of options available covering materials and finish of the lock assembly, the type of insert to operate the lock, the cam style and height for the lock.

Customers can pick the housing, insert, cam and order the fully assembled lock.
