New Product Inset T Handle Latch From Fdb For Vibration Prone Applications
This novel T handle latch from panel fittings specialist FDB addresses the need for an inset/flush locking system in situations such as truck or railway rolling stock side panels where vibration is also a significant problem, also including storage compartments on buses, coaches, commercial vehicles, gensets, machinery and equipment cabins.
Commonly referred to as a “Trap-door” latch the unit is flush mounted with rubber anti-rattle feature. The mechanism has a dual operation with unlocking achieved by means of a separate T handle type key – this also releases the integral T handle for manual operation of the door or access panel.

Finish is in polished chrome with a non-locking variant, also available for places where locking is either not needed – such as a trap door – or provided elsewhere, but still requiring an inset/flush handle for operation. Fitment is via a keyed 75mm dia hole cutout typically in 2mm panelling. Further information on FDB Panel Fittings products and services may be found at:
