EMKA specialist gasket profiles for enclosures, cabinets, vehicles, HVAC

As a specialist hardware company we are pleased to carry extensive stock of standard gasket profiles for enclosures, cabinets, vehicles, HVAC and similar. Extruded sections provide a simple and effective means of sealing to common IP ratings such as IP44, IP55, IP65, IP66. EMKA gaskets seal against ingress of dust or liquids when installed face-to-face between a door and cabinet frame. Other sections install edge-to-face and yet others seal inspection windows or provide a wiping action. Paint protection and compensation of varying gap thicknesses are further important factors in gasket application.

Extruded gaskets for enclosures and other purposes are available in self-adhesive, self-grip (clip-on), channel fixing and window type (with expansion insert). The range includes EPDM, NBR, CR, PVC and silicone, as well as fire protection specifications and many with EMC compatible coating.

In addition to electrical/electronic enclosures and cabinets, many standard sections are available specifically for applications such as motor vehicles, railway carriages, and off-road trucks and machines such as agricultural equipment and fire trucks. Coaches and motor homes also feature with moulded sections to suit doors, windows and ventilation panels, as well as external storage compartments. In addition EMKA offer a bespoke custom design service – where there is a requirement for a really different profile then the team here at EMKA are delighted to design, develop and produce to suit specific needs.

The full gasket program now includes in excess of 730 sections with or without spring clip mounting spine for environmental sealing, equipment protection or personnel protection. Profiles in neoprene, epdm, PVC, black nitrate and natural rubber cover traditional expanded closed cell (self-adhesive) foam, through wiping blade and bubble or P type sections, to more complex multi-functional and custom designs.

Profiles include wiping designs, fillers and flocked weather strips and supported sections with internal or flange structural support. Specialist considerations regarding shore hardness, tensile strength, recoil elasticity, abrasion resistance and climatic/chemical resistance can also be advised upon and allowed for in custom production.

IF you don’t see a section that works for you then contact us here to discuss your custom needs.

The EMKA Pin Hinge solution for specialist enclosure doors and panels

Our engineers here at EMKA have put together a quick, simple, low cost and reliable pin hinging solution for specialist enclosure doors and panels.

This range of pin hinges offer a quickly demountable installation with no loss of the pin – which is retained and spring loaded. These hinges are suitable for light panels where they enable quick assembly as they are only fixed with one half on the panel itself and the hinge pin then located in a hole in the frame.

At its simplest this facilitates an exceptionally quick installation – easily push fit the hinge into a hole in the panel and place the panel in position – job done.

EMKA Hinges for flush cabinet doors offer smooth appearance and better security

Our EMKA range of hinges have been designed specifically to include many for fitment of flush doors to specialist enclosures and cabinets, so as to enable a smart clean look coupled with improved security, since the close fit of an inset door minimises access for tools and other pry bars.

The full range allows 90°, 180° or 270° opening dependent upon the specific hinge chosen. Concealed, welded and lift-off features are available in a steel or stainless steel type for larger cabinets.

The flush door format also includes many external hinges with internal/concealed fixings to meet security needs, many are also available in stainless steel for robust anti-corrosion performance in heavy duty situations.

Specialist variants form an important part of this program – for example featuring 2D and 3D adjustment, and the EMKA 1056 hinge especially created to fit standard aluminium profiles as commonly used in machine guarding applications.
