Slam latches strategy slides into place

Online store seen as vital link for customers

The FDB Online store is seen by the company as an important resource for specialist panel builders needing a single point of contact for many different latch configurations, such as slam latches.

Slam latch variants from sales partners, including DIRAK and others, are listed with sliding door latches, push-button types, sliding latches, refrigeration style and a stainless steel flush T handle. “These robust slam latches all offer simple, secure closure for many industrial applications, with fiddle-free, slam and forget closure,” says FDB.

Multiple benefits

Barrel push-button latches from FDB Online are said to be suitable for small doors on cabinets and are often used for electronic equipment, “while the circular T handle latch in AISI 316 stainless steel is great where corrosion protection is needed and space is limited”.

Sliding latches are appropriate to specialist vehicles and general-purpose closure, while the C38 slam latch with inside safety release is widely used in large size insulated enclosures or containerised units – where a surface-mounted latch is preferable to avoid breaching the integrity of the door.

Glowing report

“With its slam action against a roller striker, this unit can be used on doors flush fit against the frame and features a glow-in-the-dark inside safety ‘punch’ handle for emergency release. It incorporates through holes for a padlock hasp where additional security is required to lock the handle more permanently,” adds FDB.
