EMKA HVACR Air Control

Here at EMKA we seek to not only provides every kind of gasket but also locking systems and hinges for HVACR door installations from a single ex-stock source. 

From the beginning we at EMKA have sought to meet the needs of the HVACR industry – a process which has culminated in availability of this complete program dealing with thick doors, IP65 sealing, personal safety (inner door handles etc.), large handles (for gloved hands), corrosion-resistance, heavy door weights, external viewing requirement, multi-level access (e.g. padlocking), inset handles, compression locking, pressure relief prior to opening, corner frame pieces, lifting lugs and much more. See here for more information and here to download our HVACR brochure.  

IP66 and IP65 sealing from EMKA

We and our local sister company  EMKA Profiles Ltd, – both based in the Coventry-Birmingham area – are looking forward to promoting UK manufactured products at the RICOH Arena, Coventry on 20th June 2019 as part of the “Made in the Midlands Exhibition”.

EMKA Profiles Ltd specialise in the manufacture of spring steel inserted profiles which are a combination of edge protector with bonded sponge. These rubber profiles are a co-extrusion of solid and sponge rubber, which allows them a dual function as they cover sharp or unfinished edges and also offer a sealing function.

The primary focus will be on Birmingham-made extruded sealing profiles for specialist enclosures, cabinets, vehicles, HVACR and other industrial sealing purposes. These standard and custom gasket sections – self-adhesive, channel mounted or edge mounted with a spring spine as with typical “P” sections, form an important part of equipping electrical housings, specialist vehicles and other industrial applications.

Profiles in EPDM, neoprene, PVC, black nitrate and natural rubber cover traditional expanded closed cell (self-adhesive) foam, through wiping blade and bubble or P type sections, with self-grip (clip-on), channel fixing and window type (with expansion insert), to more complex multi-functional and custom designs, perhaps with fillers or flocked weather strips and supported sections with internal or flange structural support.

This range includes EPDM, NBR, CR, PVC and silicone, as well as fire protection and hygiene specifications. 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.

Large quarter-turn locks from EMKA for specialist cabinets and enclosuresUnder the slogan of “everything but the enclosure” we will also be showing our many locks, latches, hinges, swinghandles and related hardware. For example, our stainless-steel program for food and pharmaceutical industries, and ranges for HVACR and for railway/transport applications. At the top end of the access management/protective hardware range comes the EMKA/Digitus Biometric locking program for protection and management of data centre storage devices in racks and cabinets.

EMKA 1095 program - bow/bridge, tubular and chest handles for industry

Common handles for doors and drawers come in a huge variety of styles and sizes under the labels of grab, pull, bow, bridge, tubular, drawer handles – we are all used to seeing and using them every day – if not at work then at home. So it is worth drawing attention to the idea that industrial handles differ importantly from the more domestic types.

Invariably they are designed for safe, simple and easy function, without adornments that could catch on clothing – strangely a potential hazard apparently little considered by kitchen designers among others. Invariably their design involves a significant measure of concern for their strength, especially as they get larger, for example in respect of tubular handles where double handed operation of heavy panels may be envisaged.

No surprise then that EMKA engineers are well up with this sort of thing and have established a full range of industrial handles for cabinets, enclosures and access panels.

EMKA Innovations for HVACR systems catalogue

We have recently detailed our latest HVACR related products under the “Innovations” banner and in line with the company philosophy of “everything but the enclosure” we again find product design and technological leadership. This approach benefits design engineers and installers alike with designed for purpose niche standard items which are easy to fit, fully meet industry requirements and save costs.

Examples from this new leaflet include the new modular locking handle suitable for doors opening in or outward, enabling air tightness class L1-L3. The surface-mounted modular lock and innovative compression latch-hinge in large and small variants offer yet more choice and functionality.

Accessories such as panel connectors and bow type handles are included.
