FDB Panel Fittings now have available a book detailing the development of a modular approach to the need for latches and hinges – entitled “Latch and Hinge Technology for Industrial Use”. This little red pocket book of 95 pages is packed with information from standards and guidelines, IP ratings, installing tips, actuators, rod latches, mounting arrangements and guidelines on relevant calculations as well as a dip into the arena of gaskets and edge protection profiles – plus much more.

Many illustrations add clarity to the text throughout the book, showing the how, what, why and where of latches and hinges as applied to their specification, use and fitment on specialist enclosure cabinets.

Terry Cantle, MD at FDB Panel Fittings, gives this description: “We are delighted with this pocket-sized edition which I am sure will become a valued companion for enclosure design, production and installation engineers.”

“Latch and Hinge Technology for Industrial Use” is available free of charge from FDB Panel Fittings, who may be contacted by e-mail at or via their website at, and you can find the latest information and news on the FDB blog –
