Like many companies, FDB Panel Fittings have kept working and supplying from stock with one eye to the future – and the need to restart and rebuild our industrial base. As front-line suppliers of hardware for everything from control systems to medical devices, FDB are aware that online/phone ordering and delivery to the customer door are even more important than ever.

Their Rocfast service is not new – but has been in strong demand for the way they are able to rapidly configure hardware components including locks of all types. This is especially important when supply of component parts is difficult – so FDB can speed specification, assembly and delivery by using their specialist knowledge of the market coupled with long term relationships, to save time, money and mistakes, and to get us all moving more easily when the present situation eases.

Typically, the Rocfast system could provide a careful investigation of the specification and supply parameters so that, for example, a suitable assembly of ¼ turn camlock, budget lock or stainless steel lock might be identified – coupled with perhaps a piano hinge or internal weld-on hinges – packed together with a pre-cut length of clip on sealing profile – with packs to be delivered in batch quantities.

Explained MD Gary Miles “Under the present very difficult circumstances FDB Panel Fittings are delighted that we are able to offer our Rocfast “home delivery” service – a complete specification and logistics package that saves time, money and mistakes by guiding customers through the process of specification, component matching, ordering, assembly, packaging and logistics – direct to site – worldwide.”

This Rocfast program focuses primarily on lock assembly including all major industry brands – and is designed to take the hard work out of an order process that often requires specification of individual lock components and time consuming self-assembly prior to installation. The FDB expert team rapidly identify the optimum specification of components then order, assemble and deliver to site, to workshop or to metal former/subcontractor in line with their theme of providing “Panel Fittings for every Enclosure”.
