EMKA high performance stainless steel hinges for specialist enclosures

Stainless steel is of course known for its robust strength under arduous corrosive conditions and that is exactly why we chose it for our program of specialist cabinet/enclosure hinges.

Our range of internal/external screw-on/weld-on designs are specifically developed to complement stainless steel or non-metallic enclosures in frequent wash-down areas or in marine environments.

Users of housings for electrical or electronic control/distribution equipment will benefit from application of stainless steel hinges which can lift-off – or have removable hinge pins – or simply provide an extra level of security by virtue of enabling a flush door construction with narrow gaps to discourage attack with tools/pry bars etc.

These stainless steel hinges are complemented by our wide selection of stainless steel locks from quarter-turns to swinghandles.

Specialist stainless steel cabinet and enclosure latch/locks from EMKA

Two well-known factors come together – the well understood benefits of stainless steel and the proven design/engineering technologies of EMKA in our range of specialist latches and locks for industrial cabinets and enclosures.

EMKA expertise enables the corrosion-resistance and ultimate strength of stainless steel to be developed into the robust longevity of these locking products. Our stainless steel components therefore enable engineers to “fit-and-forget”, their designed-for-purpose high quality designs mean that these products save time and replacements costs over their lifetime.

Our stainless steel locks and latches program includes quarter-turns, hygiene/wash-down locks, conventional L and T handles, space-saving swinghandles and rod mechanisms, compression locks, safety locks (vibration proof with built-in cover to exclude dirt), ring handle, wing knobs, padlockable handles and heavy duty latches.

EMKA locking systems

As innovators and market leaders from our very beginning EMKA seized on the swinghandle concept for it’s many benefits over traditional handle solutions – such as eliminating clothing hazards, reducing space in narrow corridors, reduced transit damage, improved aesthetics, – all good reasons why the swinghandle has become the handle of choice for many specialist cabinet installations.

But of course we have responded to customer needs with new developments so that now we have many different types in zinc die, reinforced polyamide and stainless steel, to suit all kinds of installation environment – including anti-vandal designs for street furniture and those with compression function for improved sealing.
