IP65 stainless compression latches from FDB Panel Fittings

FDB Panel Fittings’ range of stainless steel handles, hinges, locks and swing handles are now joined by the IP65 7-078 compression latch and its sister variant 7-079 with depth adjustable shaft. This enables the cam position on the 7-079 to be re-set to accommodate varying door-to-frame depths. Both items are especially well suited to applications where vibration may be a significant problem or where an unusually wide compression range is required. These situations include road vehicles, railway rolling stock, gen-sets, HVAC installations etc.
The compression stroke of 6mm on the 7-078 (9mm on 7-079) generates enough pressure to compress even the thickest gaskets and seals while the 90° action coupled with high pull down forces are capable of resisting vibrational movement that may otherwise allow doors to shake open. FDB’s 7-078 and 7-079 also feature a colour indicator of open-closed status for ready identification. IP65 sealing against dust and water is the norm for applications with these latches – as are wet/corrosive environments where stainless steel hardware is a standard fitment.
