Our intriguingly named “pignose bung lock” may just be the ultimate in vandal-resistant quarter-turn locks for roadside cabinets or other publicly accessible cabinets that need to stay secure.
The “pignose bung” is secured into place with a two pronged key which ensures that the inner lock is protected; while the rugged AISI 303 stainless steel body and bung offer little in the way of opportunity for vandals. Legitimate access is simply gained by removing the bung with its special key and using a normal key to turn the recessed hexagonal insert-with-pin. Both 90° and 180° rotation options are available on the “pig nosed bung lock”.

We are pleased to be able to provide greater security swinghandles for electrical/electronic/telco cabinets – these IP65 swinghandles are especially designed for applications where security is a significant concern, specifically in situations where cabinets are exposed and accessible to the general public and for outdoor installations exposed to the weather where IP65 dust/water sealing is important.
They feature electro-mechanical operation with anti-vandal design features and reinforced construction such that they comply with the European DIN V ENV 1630 Class II standard security test. This standard relates to the resistance level of doors against force using tools of class WK2, e.g. screwdrivers, pliers and wedges. Two versions are available, one with single lock cylinder and the other with dual cylinders to permit opening with either one of two keys.
Operation requires a power supply to the swinghandle or mechanical activation which may be provided under control of an existing central access management system, so enabling maintenance of an event log and update of access protocols. An LED indicates when the handle is ready to be opened and stays in that condition for 20 seconds with locked/unlocked status displayed on the LED.
Mechanical anti-vandal features include: exceptionally fine gaps/tolerances to prevent insertion of tools, reinforced edges, additional latch bolt, reinforced dust cover and availability of specialist 40 and 45mm profile lock cylinders.

Our engineers have been aware that commercial vehicle manufacturers have special requirements for their components – for example specific hinges and lock inserts. Consequently we are now pleased to offer a range of transport related hardware with the durability to withstand high vibration environments with a high degree of vandal-resistance built-in. These are particularly applicable to utility vehicles such as agricultural harvesting machines, for example which are used in areas far removed from any repair shop or replacement parts, and must also meet a very tight harvesting schedule. Similarly, other mobile plant and construction vehicles where small problems can lead to long and expensive delays.
Typically the 12-600TR concealed hinge for cab doors and the 12-210TR compression latch exemplify the range which covers everything from quarter-turn locks/latches with a variety of specialist inserts, through lock rods, cams, slam latches, concealed and screw-on hinges, clip-on gaskets, recessed handles, bridge handles and SNAP-Joiners.
So whether the application is for fixed or mobile plant, on the farm or building site you can rely on us to have a welter of hardware to suit the application.

As market-leading panel fittings specialists we have taken a particular focus on an IP65 range of products for the tunnel/traffic control environment, where safety and reliability are of course paramount and primarily involves the use of high quality stainless steel ¼ turn locks, swinghandles and hinges with matching grade gaskets.
In contrast to other types of systems, tunnel safety systems must meet much more demanding reliability and safety requirements. Enabling people to rescue themselves in tunnel emergencies has highest priority, which is why new regulations mandate that escape routes and emergency facilities be placed closer together. It must be ensured that every emergency system always functions properly even after many years of service.
Environmental influences such as dust, acids and high wind pressures from passing vehicles place high demands on the hinges and latching systems of emergency facilities. Traffic control technology has been moving increasingly toward high-tech systems designed specifically to optimize the flow of traffic. The latches used in such systems must reliably withstand environmental influences even after years of service.
The fittings in the FDB tunnel safety series are specified to guarantee resistance to corrosion and security against unauthorized access and are made of exceptionally high quality materials, primarily AISI 316, 316F and 316Ti with sealing performance of IP65 and IP66. When maintenance must be performed, they ensure that personnel can quickly access the system without being hampered by corroded parts.
