EMKA Sealing Technology made to measure catalogue

Our New EMKA Sealing Technology 2020 Catalogue covers made to measure Profiles and Frames which greatly enhance the performance and reliability of enclosure gasket installations – this new catalogue contains a wealth of technical information and is downloadable for free on the EMKA website.

The EMKA Sealing Technology Catalogue for standard or custom profiles, including those sections which incorporate internal spring steel spines to ensure robust edge grip.

In this catalogue we have detailed how the butt joins and corners of frames and rings can be glued, film vulcanised or injection moulded (with formed corners/end feeds). This highly accurate factory process thereby creates a pre-sized and complete ring or frame of endless gasket which removes the difficult task of hand cutting and joining at the point of installation. It can readily be seen that the use of factory finished rings or frames greatly speeds the installation and improves the performance of fitted gaskets on specialist enclosures and cabinets.

EMKA Railway swinghandle

Open sesame: one swinghandle, multiple security levels!

As an experts for hardware components in the rail sector our engineers have reacted to the changing requirements of the rail industry and developed a flat swinghandle with interchangeable components. On the one hand, the new handle creates flexibility for the customer and, on the other hand it increases the safety level in hazardous areas.

With this extremely flat swinghandle, which is installed outside the seal, we reduce the risk of people getting caught on the handles and injuring themselves. By installing it outside the seal, the handle is no longer in the direct danger or fire area and can be made of high-quality die-cast zinc. This also makes it more attractive in terms of price.

This new flat design EMKA swinghandle has an ingenious feature which ensures a high degree of flexibility – by designing the divided recess as a module in the lower area, this allows the locking modules to be exchanged from the front of the cabinet – without the need for time-consuming dismantling of the entire handle. The following interchangeable modules are available: profile half cylinder, Kaba cylinder, round cylinder, and various actuators.

New EMKA 2020-2021 catalogue and supplement

We have again been able to demonstrate our commitment to the arena of industrial hardware components with this new Main Catalogue 2020/2021 which covers our comprehensive range of ingenious locking technology for cabinets and enclosures. A range that has earned the description of “everything but the enclosure” for the way in which specialist panel builders have come to rely on it for their high quality, easy to assemble locks, handles, hinges, swinghandles and gasket.

As a quick companion reference where customers need only an easy update, there is also provide a Catalogue Supplement 2020 – for the previous 2018/2019 main catalogue which shows new products added during 2019/2020 – these include quarter turns for quick fit assembly without tools, compression latches for vibration resistance, quarter turns for hygiene areas (to EHEDGE requirements), plugs and covers, as well as significant new swinghandle and lifthandle programs.

Many new hinges are included in the supplement for flush and protruding doors, along with new gasket sealing sections in resistant EPDM which offer a quick way to seal an enclosure or cabinet against ingress of dust and water.  The supplement is completed with a new stainless steel rear mounted bow type handle for hygiene areas.
