IP65 quarter-turn locks for small cabinets from EMKA

It is good to remember that we specifically cater for small enclosures and panel doors with our quarter turn program of small and medium sized locks and latches including wing knobs and compression latches. So if you need the reassurance and practicality of a  robust security device with an insert or key mechanism then you can rely on the EMKA program.

On the other hand small boxes often need exceptionally quick assembly and we can help there as well with the 1022 quick mounting quarter turn program.

EMKA testing laboratory

EMKA has always believed it is important to support our standard and custom products with a comprehensive in-house testing facility. This has been a significant part of EMKA engineering over many years and now our Technology Centre has been accredited by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH – DAkkS) (The German National Accreditation Body) for ten selected test procedures. According to the standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, it confirms the capability of EMKA as a world market leader for locking devices, hinges and seals in the performance of material, life cycle and environmental simulation tests. Their test laboratory thus meets all legal and standards requirements at the highest international level.

The test laboratory is located in our technology centre, with allows us to offer a wide range of measuring and testing procedures – always taking into account the high-quality requirements for locks, hinges and seals. The facility has extensive equipment: from the water jet and dust test system, a salt spray and climate chamber on a spectral analyser to the tensile tester. The focus is on numerous processes in the field of environmental simulation testing, technical and mechanical testing of fittings as well as material analysis and life tests.

Among other things, DAkkS examined the quality management system of EMKA, selected measuring equipment and the implementation of test procedures by trained personnel. In a technical audit and a system audit, DAkkS employees assessed the conditions in the EMKA Technology Centre. They also tested the expertise of the laboratory staff and issued the relevant notification after successful completion of the accreditation process. Subsequently, DAkkS confirmed that EMKA possesses technically trained personnel as well as the technical and organizational abilities to carry out selected tests in accordance with the relevant standards and regulations. Accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, the test laboratory is now a conformity assessment body (CAB).

A suitable quality management system – which describes all process steps and structures in detail – is one of the prerequisites for the accreditation by DAkkS. Strict guidelines ensure that the correct test equipment is tested in suitable procedures and that all necessary measured variables, including measurement uncertainties, are included. In addition, a DKD calibration of relevant measuring equipment is necessary. “The accreditation by the independent, higher-level national accreditation body leads to a higher acceptance of products”, emphasises Dr. Thomas Koliwer, CTO at EMKA. “This gives customers greater confidence in the safety and quality of our test procedures and thus of our products.”

EMKA 1087 Door Stop for cabinets and enclosures

Under our theme of “everything but the enclosure” this helpful new door stop – Program 1087 – offers increased fixing opportunities and a reduced rail leg, which enables more variable installations where a positive door retention is required for use in windy conditions or otherwise during maintenance situations.

In particular the angular mounting rail provides 9 fixing holes, offering various fixing possibilities to the door or reinforced door frame – plus the reduced height of the rail leg of 16mm offers an ideal fixing solution for narrow, reinforced door frames.

See our full range of cover stays and door stops in the EMKA catalogue.
