Small and medium quarter-turn latches/locks in the new EMKA catalogue

In our new EMKA 2017/2018 catalogue we describe the Program 1012 and 1022 quarter-turn latches and locks in the small to medium size range, for use on small cabinets, wall mounted enclosures, control desks, machine controls, boxes and instrument cases. In these applications simple insert keys, uniform profile cylinder locks and wing knob options will be of interest to manufacturers and installers alike.

Rated at IP65 the 1012 and 1022 series utilise the traditional small EMKA cut-out with the 1022 type offering in addition vibration resistant compression locking or IP69K sealing with quick-fit assembly. Materials include zinc die chrome plated, zinc die black powder coated, stainless steel AISI 303 and black polyamide.

The EMKA catalogue can be obtained free from EMKA on 024 7661 6505, email: emka@emka.co.uk or downloaded from our website at www.emka.com/uk_en/products/download/industry/.

Our new HVAC  hinge lock meets all the criteria for securing big air-conditioning units.  By using a height-adjustable hinge bracket, it also makes a precisely adjustable gasket compression possible.

As this video demonstrates, when opening the EMKA HVAC lock, decompression is effected in two steps: First the door is caught by an integrated, patented impact guard so that the pressure can escape from the vent ducts safely. Then the door is unlocked enabling access to the unit. The door can be closed in only one step, another distinctive feature for convenient operation.

EMKA IP40/IP65 cabinet swinghandle system with swappable cylinders and internal/external rods

Our 1325 swinghandle system is an IP40/IP65 modular design which readily facilitates resetting of lock formats at any stage – from profile half cylinder to electromechanical round cylinder or insert lock. There is also a padlockable version available.

This 1325 program includes a simple escutcheon, a swinghandle with rod lock capability within the multi-point door seal area, and a wide escutcheon swinghandle variant which enables use of multi-point flat rods outside the door seal area. This maximises useable mounting space on the door itself as well as permitting especially narrow door frame sections to maximise door aperture – it also provides a larger escutcheon aesthetic for instructions/branding or similar.

Earlier this year we put together a video showing some of our manufacturing processes which we thought that customers would be interested to see – so here it is:

Not only does it show the breadth of capability for our modular standard enclosure hardware of locks, handles, swinghandles, hinges and gaskets – but it it shows the how these technologies are readily available in our custom products program – so if you have a need for a special then contact us in Coventry to discuss your specification however unusual – a little or a lot!
