Ingenoius locking and hinge technology from EMKA

EMKA are market leaders in ex-stock and custom provision of specialist enclosure and cabinet hardware for the electrical, electronic, data centre, HVACR and transport industries. This is covered by our philosophy to provide “everything but the enclosure” including locks, handles, hinges, swinghandles, gasket from stock in depth at our Coventry warehouse. 

“Everything but the enclosure” grew out of our commitment to modular standard products for the specialist panel industry – based on customer responsiveness to user requirements. Concepts such as “Ingenious locking Technology” grew from our in house team of experienced designers, developers and engineers focused on ensuring individual customer solutions – whether ex-stock or custom, matching design ingenuity with extensive manufacturing capability. 

So as they say – if you don’t see what you want, contact us to see what our ingenious designers can do for you.

New from EMKA - sealed quarter-turn option for floor and ground latches in railway situations

This new range of stainless steel quarter-turn catches now includes the Program 1000 System incorporating a sealed cover. This is especially valuable for railway applications or other situations where a floor mounted latch is required and there is a need to exclude the infiltration of dirt and moisture into the latch mechanism.

The threaded cover may be used with a number of 1000 program latches which offer square, slotted, triangular, hexagon and proprietary railway key inserts. The quarter-turn latch is first installed onto the floor mounted cover plate or access panel, with the “O” ring sealed cover then fitted over it for protection and a neat flush appearance which presents a safe footing for pedestrians.

Our capacity for high quality mould making to suit a range of material technologies enables us to make high-precision tooling for EMKA group standard products while also  facilitating special designs in series products for external customers –  particularly from sectors such as:
