Stainless steel AISI 316 hinges from EMKA for specialist cabinets

Our new stainless steel hinges in AISI 316 offer all the high performance strength and advanced corrosion resistance benefits of that material. They are suited for use in especially demanding situations such as on cabinets and housings for use in tunnels or offshore.

The presence of molybdenum in the 316 grade alloy confers a much improved degree of corrosion resistance compared to the more common 304 grade, especially in saline/chloride conditions, as well as a range of other industrial solvents.

The new introductions include the Program 1110 180° lift-off hinge for inline cabinets with adjacent doors, alongside the Program 1031 which is a 125° concealed hinge for single cabinets, with a retained hinge pin.

EMKA moulded section profiles

The increasing popularity of compression latches and locking mechanisms opens up wider possibilities for gasketing of cabinets and enclosures with many different types of sealing profile – perhaps softer or simply of larger dimensions or with different design of section.

EMKA Stainless Steel L Handle for padlock and stainless door/cover stay

This new 1000 program stainless steel L handle is both highly corrosion resistant and designed to accept a padlock for security. The AISI 316 handle features a padlockable mechanism below the L, further restricting access to the lock and enhancing security. The advanced properties of AISI 316 make this handle especially suited to offshore or coastal environments or other applications subject to saline/chloride exposure.

Alongside this new L handle we now offer an internally mounted 1050 program door or cover stay in AISI 304, which provides a locking mechanical prop to support heavy covers, or doors subject to wind forces when open. The 1050 stay is an important safety device in the protection of service personnel and to restrict door movement and consequential damage.
