FDB Panel Fittings with sales partner DIRAK are delighted to launch this new slam latch for sliding doors and panels. Designed especially for the broad range of industry, light commercial and high-quality residential sliding doors that are widely used on specialist vehicles, caravans, motorhomes, railways, office cabinets, domestic light doors, cupboards and storage units.

The DIRAK team explained that “locking systems for sliding doors must meet several requirements like durability, smooth operation and convenience. Our challenge was to match these attributes precisely and to design the latch so that it is visibly appealing as well as lockable.”

This new development in slam lock design offers convenience and reliability with oblong mounting holes which make it possible to use aluminium profiles of different profile widths and may also be used for adjustment. A sufficiently large rear grip makes it easy to open the door simply by pulling on the handle – the design makes it easy to close the door by sliding shut. Plus, lockable versions are optionally available keyed alike or keyed different.
