FDB Panel Fittingsvisit website


For special-purpose vehicles such as fire engines, ambulances, police riot control vehicles and refuse trucks, there are many special requirements; FDB Panel Fittings has taken these into account with its specialist range of hardware. These requirements begin with a high degree of resistance to vibration and vandalism, coupled with some specific standards and industry usages such as for handles, gaskets and especially lock inserts – vital for security while enabling ready access to any authorised person who needs to only carry one key.

Examples include the 12-880TR bridge handle, with application-specific colour-coding, UL listed clip-on gasket, stainless steel slam latches and AISI 316TI stainless steel quarter-turn locks with industry-standard inserts.

FDB offers a broad range of these products, coupled with stock and service support matched to the procurement and logistics needs of specialist vehicle manufacturers.
