For Special Purpose Vehicles such as fire-fighting trucks, ambulances, police riot control vehicles, refuse trucks etc, there are many special requirements which FDB Panel Fittings have taken into account with their specialist range of hardware. These requirements begin with a high degree of vibration and vandalism resistance, coupled with some quite 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 therefore 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.
These special purpose vehicles are often built in small quantities for especially challenging situations. 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.
