As a long-time partner of the train and transport industry, EMKA is constantly working on new and innovative locking developments like their IP65 Stainless Steel Safety Latch Lock with red/green visual position indicator. This flush mounted unit is tamper and vibration proof for rear mounting on doors of 5mm thickness where fully flush appearance is required, otherwise a slight inset or upstand is presented.

The unit is to DIN EN 61373 in AISI 304 and can be supplied with hexagon female SW8 (red-green marking) or Square 8 insert for doors on railway carriages and other rolling stock where a secure door closure is required with easy opening when needed.

New Invisible Gear Hinge from EMKA – a 180° fit for railway doors

Our new 1007 program concealed gear hinge – often referred to in the industry as “SOSS” type is a hidden 180° opening unit mounted within the width thickness of the doors with a minimum dimension of 33mm. Smooth sliding action and improved appearance are additionally offered by this rugged hinge which is equally at home in railway carriages or offices, on passenger doors or cupboard doors – where being hidden it is also resistant to vandalism.

The elegant design of this 1007 hinge is made possible by the integration of polyamide 66 GF50, POM and PTFE high specification plastics, combined with plated zinc die, steel and stainless steel components. By combining the best in material technology and engineering design, EMKA engineers have succeeded in presenting a high performing hinge for the public rail arena which also closes away out of sight and is thus vandal resistant.

The 1007 is included in the EMKA Railway Industry catalogue available at www.emkablog.co.uk/2018-railway-catalogue.

EMKA locking solutions for railway applications

Our friendly engineers here at EMKA are well aware of the varying needs of industrial markets worldwide – the Railway industry of course is one in particular where we have both a standard product and significant custom design focus.

Of course, custom design is applicable to large and small production quantities, but is always targeted at achieving the best lock, latch, sealing solution for rail related applications.

Typically, this may include use of stainless steel, IP sealing to a high level, possibly a spring-loaded insert cover to exclude dirt in service. Flange fittings, rear fittings, special cams, special inserts, custom barrels, adjustable depth mounting and special flanges are common requests.

Mainstream ex-stock locks are generally suitable of course for mainstream applications – for example, the EMKA compression latch with optical opening indicator for flush mounting. This item provides rear fixing for added security, visual open/close indication for easy status checking, adjustable depth mounting to suit different door thicknesses, compression action to ensure full compression of the gasket and is also anti-vibration to prevent nuisance opening. All with multiple cam solutions and sealed to IP65.
