Hygiene FDB3650

FDB Panel Fittings are pleased to offer a special new Double D profile key for hygiene locks, FDB3650 – Hygiene protective key.

FDB3650 – Hygiene protective key protects against micro scratch surface damage when used in operation.

This new key helps to maintain the strict performance conditions required by the food processing industry.

Food industry requirements include the use of hygiene rated quarter turn latch/locks which have mirror-polished surfaces in order to protect against accumulation of dirt and bacteria.

DIRAK hygiene locks from FDB have been tested in accordance with DGUV Test Certificate NV 13090.

It is important that they remain pristine in service as these mirror surfaces may be easily scratched with a metal key – making them difficult to clean properly and giving the possibility of bacterial build up. 

DIRAK have therefore developed a new 13mm double D hygienic key made of high strength Grivory industrial plastic, now available from FDB Panel Fittings, to prevent operational scratch damage to these mirror surfaces. 

This high-quality material ensures that the key is both strong and robust while protecting the polished surface of the lock insert.

Quarter turn hygiene latches from FDB/DIRAK with SW13 security inserts are now available with Red or Blue O-rings to suit FDA colour coding for food and other internal processing areas, where they are resistant to dirt and easy to clean by virtue of their polished surfaces and smooth transition radii.

This new hygiene key is the perfect accessory - coloured blue tor easy identification in hygienic applications - a company logo can be added on request.
