EMKA Single-factor, Multi-factor - front door, rear door linked data cabinet security

EMKA UK has a record of providing data centre security solutions based on our approach of locating biometrics at the cabinet door – an approach that enables multi-factor authentication and bulletproof security, with an indisputable audit trail.

With the recent launch of our Biolock demonstration kit, customers can now “try before you buy” so enabling the client to use and become compliant with the system in a controlled environment at their leisure with a simple introduction to the complete suite of items. Which can then be supported by a parallel phone or online conversation with the demonstrating EMKA engineer.

The kit presents an opportunity for the client to get to see not just the software but the physical hardware and how they integrate into the anticipated installation.

Genset housing hardware from EMKA

Our EMKA engineers have developed a package of proven enclosure hardware with style and quality to compliment all sizes of electrical generators for basement or rooftop installation. Genset packages are often installed in harsh outdoor environments but are required to be reliable and resistant to these arduous conditions for extended lifetimes – EMKA locks, handles, hinges, gasket and accessories support this and are suitable for external enclosures or cabins – also for internal control housings.

Typically, the hardware kit includes an IP65 slam closure recessed handle, which provides an easy opening cycle – pull to operate, slam to close. Once open, telescopic cover stays/door stays in steel or stainless steel may be used to hold the door open conveniently against wind forces in the outside environment or to support horizontal panels against gravity during access for maintenance.

External flat butt hinges are simple to install and suitable for large heavy doors, while lift-off versions are available as are internal lift-off hinges. Door sealing is taken care of with standard EMKA knock-on gaskets incorporating side bubble sealing – this simply fits the edge of the frame section so the door can compress onto the bubble. The package is completed with window glazing sections including a locking element to ensure a positive fit and seal.

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 EMKA range includes EPDM, NBR, CR, PVC and silicone, as well as many with EMC compatible coating. These suit electrical and electronic cabinets, as well as street furniture and specialist vehicles.

There are special profile sections for special applications.

EMKA Swinghandle locking solutions

We are pleased to offer a wide range of market-leading Swinghandle designs that feature a safe rest position with leverage comparable to an L handle, but without the protrusion where people and clothing may get caught. This is important in often busy and crowded industrial environments, where protruding handles might otherwise present a safety hazard. Their low profile also provides a smoother surface when in transit, where L and T handles can damage adjacent cabinets or may need on-site installation – a swinghandle design resolves all these problems.

Swinghandles are typically modular, with many variants to accommodate key cylinders, insert keys, multiple key cylinders and padlocks. They can be installed with multi-point rod locking systems and options include electronic locking, digital PIN locking, swipe cards and Biometric locking at the cabinet door.

Swinghandles offer an intrinsic level of vandal resistance by virtue of the pop-out handle being recessed within its housing – a layout which enables some variants to meet the RC2 vandal resistance standard for outdoor street cabinets. This recessed layout further enables sealing against ingress of dust and water from IP40 to IP66 across the range.  Material options include zinc die, polyamide and stainless steel.
