EMKA quarter turn locks

Most people , it may be argued, know us best for our quarter turn locks which have been a mainstay of specialist enclosure builders component kits for as long as many of us can remember – so our quarter turn overview page will probably be quite useful to a lot of engineers and installers. Page 1-100 of our catalogue is available online where customers can see the range of types, protection levels, dimensions and accessories that relate to these mainstream cabinet locks.

EMKA solve the prominent door hinging dilemma

“How do I hinge my prominent cabinet door robustly and aesthetically?” is a question often faced by specialist enclosure/cabinet builders. Usually asked along with the caveat that it must be quick to fit and at reasonable cost. Well, typically, we have a solution in our modular range of prominent door hinges to suit standard 20mm or 25mm returns, and even down to 6mm.

10 programs of hinge design cover requirements from concealed-with-removable hinge pin through simple lift-off butt hinges. Captive pins simplify door removal without the potential concern of losing the pin – while others make the installation process really quick by utilising the pivot pin as a concealed retaining device.

Prominent door hinges in this range are available in steel, zinc die, reinforced polyamide and in stainless steel which offer door openings of 115° to 180° with nested doors. Where colour matching is required, then weld-on hinges offer a low-cost and very robust solution.

Our range of Air Conditioning HVAC specialist panel hardware comprises a full program of heavy duty latches, lift and turn latch, pull handles, pull with quarter turn and 180° hinge coupled with P type gasket profiles  which may be provided in continuous sealed rings to ensure unbroken sealing,  which permits over pressure systems with minimal leaks.

EMKA Rod Lock systems maximise cabinet sealing and door utility

Our rod locking systems operate with traditional round or new flat rod designs sited within the door gasket area where they enable multi-point closure for optimal gasket pull-down. They can help in achieving IP65 levels or higher if matched with a suitable lock mechanism from EMKA’s modular program of swinghandles, quarter-turns and traditional L/T handles.

The EMKA system maximises usable door space by virtue of its narrow design whereby rod fixings and actuators are slimmed down to fit close to the door margin, thus freeing up the remaining area.

Round and flat rods are quickly installed by use of easy clip-in rod guides. Typically round rod systems enable 2 or 3 point closure, whereas a flat rod design incorporates the possibility of additional closure points along their length which is especially useful on very tall cabinets.
