A universal key for railway applications
FDB Panel Fittings Managing Director, Gary Miles here talks about what he believes a modern day universal key for railway applications is. Miles explained: “In the railway industry we work with many different key types for various applications, requiring people to carry a lot of keys wherever they go. So we created a convenient and flexible product to better serve this industry – a universal key for 4 different inserts so that engineers can conveniently open multiple applications with one key."
The universal railway key offers a single piece with the 4 common key types to save on carry weight and ensure that engineers can always have the right key, right there to hand - with extra leverage for hard to turn locks, and an integrated eyelet for easy attachment.
This stainless steel key includes the conical square insert (Berne key), the socket square 7.6mm insert (UK), the DÜWAG insert and traditional conical square 9mm.
