Swinghandles, lifthandles, escutcheons from EMKA

Specialist cabinet and enclosure panel builders are frequently in the position of asking “which locking system should I use?” Well as market leaders here at EMKA we have accumulated an extensive portfolio of modular design swinghandles, lifthandles and escutcheons for enclosures, cabinets, access panels and general industrial use to make life easier for specialist panel builders.

With over 30 designs in our 1100, 1200, 1300, 2000 and 3000 series we have all the options covered from IP40 to IP65 and in sizes from small (finger operated) up to large – full hand operation with substantial torque capability for closure of multi-point systems on large doors with significant gasket pull down.

There are a number of variants with electronic locks, remote locking and combination digit manual locks in-built to specific handles, which enable the specialist panel builder or installer to choose a suitable locking handle and internal cam + rods configuration.

Dual locking versions enable 2 person opening with either 2 separate keys or key + manual combination, whereas electronic locking of course permits key fob radio operation or remote unlocking via networked computer managed control.

Standard industry cut-outs are employed to ensure accurate and robust fitment quickly and without incurring extensive labour costs.

EMKA new bridge pull handle

This new bridge type pull handle with cover can be installed easily, is shaped ergonomically, is available in various colours and can even be adapted to the corporate identity of the company using it.

It consists of two parts: the actual grab handle and a cover which can be clipped on by the fitter without using tools. The choice of colour is individual – depending on the taste and requirement of the customer who can also order the handle with the logo or slogan of his company, if required. The cover presents a smooth easy to clean surface –  as an option, this surface is also available as an antibacterial version, for example for the use in sensitive environments such as in medical or food applications. Due to its modern waisted design the new handle is ergonomically optimised with a clean style since the cover disguises the screws and mounting parts. Construction is of glass fibre reinforced plastic.

Vandal resistant 1317 swinghandle from EMKA for outdoor use

Exposure to the elements all year round, vibrations on the roadside or vandalism – outdoor switch cabinets are exposed to increased stresses. To protect theses boxes EMKA has developed the outdoor program 1317.

With this robust range of IP65  swinghandles we can provide a wide range of solutions: from the cost-efficient plastic variation up to the high-quality electromechanical lock of zinc die cast. The whole range was developed at our in-house technology centre. With regard to the design the focus was put on the special tightness and increased vandalism protection of the locks. The clearances between handle and dish have been made so small that no screwdriver fits in. In addition, the surfaces are as smooth as possible so that no dirt can accumulate or graffiti adhere to them.
