Sealing of enclosures or cabinet doors is made simple with the range of clip-fit, push-fit and self-adhesive sections from FDB Panel Fittings.
These specialist profiles in EPDM, NBR, neoprene and PVC offer a quickly installed solution to maintaining good IP protection for panel builders, equipment manufacturers and vehicle constructors.
Clip-on hollow section gaskets enable inexpensive and effective protection from dust and water to be achieved with the simple expedient of pushing the section onto the frame profile or inner door edge. Construction is of EPDM or NBR (oil resistant) bonded onto a spring steel spine.
Sizes of FDB sealing strips range from 8mm to 13mm width sections and are available tested to UL standards – UL 94 HB. 50m coils are listed at the FDB Online store for ex-stock same-day despatch.
Other sections are designed to be retained within channels or for self-adhesion to painted surfaces, while edge protectors and window profiles with expanding filter sections enable simple edge covering and window installations for inspection of machine settings and processes.
Where electromagnetic compatibility is necessary variants are available to combine EMC with dust and water sealing.
Alongside their sections FDB Panel Fittings have issued a Knowledge Base data sheet to make selection of seals and gaskets easier. This downloadable document (available at www.fdbonline.co.uk/collections/knowledge-base) covers the standard styles of self-gripping seals, edge protection and rectangular section gaskets. Additional information is provided on window seals, channel seals and round profiles, together with tabulated performance data for typical materials.
