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.
