EMKA Bow handles for industrial uses

Our team are pleased to advise that EMKA industrial Bow handles – also known as fixed handles, tube handles, machine handles or pull handles are suited to general industrial use on access panels, doors, drawers and cabinets, as well as for lifting of cases and equipment. They are also designed for office furniture, display cases and retail store fittings. Bow handles can be used on both indoor and outdoor applications dependent on material and design.

Most popular variants are manufactured in black polyamide, featuring front and rear fixing with/without clip on-cover, to screen fixings. Other styles range from simple flat-formed plated steel, round rod stainless steel, cast/formed aluminium, also plastic coated and zinc die. Generally, they take the form of a straight U type shape but offset versions are also available while other moulded and cast designs provide round a rod or oval section grip.

EMKA Agent E electronic locking systems

Well-known, as we are, for providing  “everything but the enclosure”, EMKA (UK) Ltd are delighted to inform of developments with our innovative Agent E swinghandle and accessories which offer wireless communication for cabinet security in the protection of valuable/sensitive data such as for server parks or manufacturing and utility centres. The EMKA wireless Control Unit can actuate up to 1,200 handles in one wireless network with authentication via 13.56 MHz RFID cards, which ensure that remote opening is always possible. Optionally, 4-eye security is possible for authentication with 2 recognised cards.

Agent E wireless handles have a connection option for one-door contact and are most suitable for retrofitting, with each handle providing extremely energy-efficient battery operation (service life of battery min. 3 years) – an emergency power function is possible by using the integrated USB port.

EMKA Rack Management Systems are installed worldwide in data centres and server parks of banks and co-location centres which are required to secure their server racks against unwanted access. To secure server rack doors, a combination of electromechanical handles, software and radio technology is considered the best choice – such as the “Agent E” type handle, proven by installation at numerous customers such as large banks – including personalised access to the cabinet as well as permanent monitoring and control of the opening and closing processes.

The increasing requirements of modern IT infrastructure in data centres demand a maximum of physical security and so these Rack Management Systems guarantee clear and simple logging and backtracking due to their personified access control down to cabinet level. Moreover, the systems monitor all physical parameters in the racks and thus increase the operational reliability of the entire installation. This includes database-driven control software, high-capacity modules and electro-mechanical handles.



Our colleagues in EMKA test and manufacturing have recently expanded their test laboratory by incorporating a state-of-the-art 3D printer that utilises the latest Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technology. During this procedure – called selective laser sintering – minute polymer powder particles are sintered into a solid structure. The process uses a powerful laser, which is guided by a computer-aided design (CAD) model. This offers advantages in terms of sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

All tasks, including printing and polishing, are fully automated. Because the 3D printer has two construction chambers, continuous production is possible without downtime. As a result, EMKA can now not only rapidly produce its own prototypes or spare parts but also fulfil urgent customer orders without delay.

What do switch, control, and server racks have in common? They are subject to stringent requirements because they must provide the best possible protection for the electronics and other, sometimes highly sensitive, devices inside the rack. It is imperative to prevent the infiltration of dust, dirt, and water. Moreover, it is critical to ascertain the Read more
