It is difficult to imagine a mechanical device simpler than a hinge – just two plates joined with a pin – so it is amazing just how sophisticated hinge designs have come. To the point that now we are able to offer multiple hinge types enabling customers to find one for almost every industrial application in a multitude of industrial sectors.
Our engineers have recently added to their online Guidance notes for particular conditions – in this case dealing with locking solutions for HVACR – i.e. heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. As a market leader with great experience in the area, this is one of the most important industries for the team here at EMKA who are constantly developing our portfolio of locks, handles, hinges and sealing profiles specifically to meet the needs of the sector.
HVACR hardware solutions are designed to deal with outdoor installations with appropriate degrees of sealing and corrosion resistance. They can suit internally pressurised systems with internal safety handles on heavy, thick doors where operation may be needed with gloved hands. They comply with the special requirements of the HVACR sector and meet the relevant standards such as DIN EN 1886 or VDI 6022.
These new guidance notes lead the visitor to a program of Standard HAVCR products including modular locking systems for doors of thickness 25-110mm and a very innovative compression latch-hinge in a single product which allows, hinging, locking and door or panel removal as well as incorporating a pressure relief safety feature.
A specialist surface mounted modular door lock with an internal handle is complemented with a Clip-on sealing profile according to hygiene standard VDI 6022. Other accessories particular to HVACR installations include a snap-in double glazed inspection window, industry-standard 3D adjustable unit connectors and ergonomic bow-type handle made of reinforced polyamide. The HVACR engineering team are always keen to work with customers on new specifications to suit unusual applications. Contact us here to discuss your specialist needs.
As market leader in standard modular locks, handles, and hinges we at EMKA are well aware of the need for custom design solutions and therefore custom manufactured components – in support of this we have within the EMKA group a world-class, specialist precision casting division.
This division has 192 employees who are responsible for producing investment castings from steel and stainless steel in a variety of qualities and alloys. With their modern technology, they are able to produce castings between 0.5 g and 10 kg and up to 250 mm long which is highly suitable for the industries of enclosures, cabinets, vehicles, HVACR, rail, hygiene working and building fittings.
These parts are finished mechanically in modern machining centres or electrochemically by electroplating. The process is fully integrated into the rest of the group so that their expertise is directly available to our customers in the UK – fully certified: according to ISO 9001:2015 and IATF 16949:2016. Contact us to discuss your custom requirements.
