EMKA edge protection profiles

Our extruded edge protectors are now offered in a wide range of sizes using spring steel spines within PVC or EPDM sheaths, so ensuring a firm grip. We are also pleased to announce sections in fire grade EPDM.

Self-locking “U” sections are ideal for covering of potentially sharp metal or glass fibre edges which may otherwise present a hazard to people on furniture or equipment. Typically, shelving, doors or similar may require safety sheathing or a form of bumper protection which can be provided by these purpose-designed, ex-stock sections.

We notice that edge protectors are often called for elsewhere for purely cosmetic purposes where they serve to tidy up otherwise unsightly edges or to protect cut edges from environmental factors – or from impact damage in some situations.

For other requirements in addition to carrying comprehensive UK stock we also offer a custom design service on our extruded section products. Contact us to specify your custom needs.

EMKA gasket sealing profiles

With a manufacturing site here in the UK – in Birmingham – EMKA (UK) are well placed to offer excellent delivery of high-quality EPDM gasket profiles. A quick Google search confirms – with more than 3 page one reports – we can see that our specialist approach is appreciated, whether for self-adhesive cellular foam or P type edge clip-on with spring steel spine. Hollow plug-in profiles, window rubbers and edge protection in many standard sections and sizes are readily available.

Our approach of carrying high stock levels is complimented with a full custom service when required to ensure that specialist enclosure and vehicle builders can keep their production lines supplied in these challenging times.

EMKA cabinet and enclosure hardware developments

Coming out of the Covid 19 lock down and possibly headed into a recession it is fair to say that sourcing basic industrial components may be a problem from some manufacturers – but not from EMKA!

We have experienced a significantly enhanced level of RFQs in recent weeks and are pleased to say that both our UK stock holding and our group manufacturing facilities are  operating normally.

So if you are looking for cabinet/enclosure hardware – locks, handles, hinges, gasket, swinghandles or related items – remember our theme “everything but the enclosure” and contact us to discuss your needs.

EMKA window gasket profiles

EMKA offer effective ex-stock gasket solutions for glazing of inspection panels on equipment and windows on vehicles.

Based on traditional well proven designs, these EPDM glazing profiles come in an “H” section clamping style with separate locking strip to ensure a secure fixing of glass/acrylic/polycarbonate/aluminium, or similar panels of up to 6mm thickness in up to 2.5mm doors.

Alternative “Z” section profiles in EPDM and NBR provide an offset installation where the window may be arranged to protrude from the door or otherwise inset into it. This offset enables small additional clearance to be achieved if required and offers a rapid fixing of glazing panels up to 6mm thick. It also has the benefit of added impact resistance on machines as the glazing is larger than the opening thus offering greater protection for the operator.
