FDB Panel Fittings have introduced a new clip fit guide for round locking rod systems to complement the flat rod version recently introduced. This round-rod-guide will suit all those panel builders using the traditional and cheaper round rod systems, while speeding assembly. Such multi-point rod mechanisms are common in larger cabinets from 1200mm to over 2m in height where they optimise clamping of door gaskets.
Consequently simplification of the door assembly is likely to be welcomed by specialist manufacturers of electrical control cabinets and industrial electronic racks where sealing in the region of IP54 is required.
These quick fit rod guides require no tools and offer zero-defect assembly with correct fitment being audibly confirmed. In addition, rattling of the rods (often a problem in older systems) is virtually eliminated by the internal spring elements of the guides.
