Design engineers employed in electrical/electronic cabinet design will understand that these are common but specialist applications – just “any old hinge” from a hardware supplier is unlikely to do the job adequately or look right, or both. Consequently a continuing problem for specialist enclosure designers is the correct specification and cost effective installation of suitable hinges. Since we at EMKA consider ourselves to be market leaders in “everything but the enclosure” we have taken this entirely to heart and have produced probably the largest offering of enclosure/cabinet hinges available, specifically to suit the electrical and electronic industries requirements for protective housings.
This specialist hinge series simplifies the hinging of prominent/lay-on doors with a range of 23 different groupings, developed in consequence of the growth in electrical and electronic industries. Our standardised solutions are special purpose designs to match a defined range of applications, environments and performance criteria, with each type available in various sizes to suit door rigidity, sealing requirements, door loading etc.
This prominent door hinge program features weld-on or fully finished types with machine screw fixings or fast fixing possibilities. Opening capabilities of 120° to 180° are available as are removable pins or lift-off variants to speed installation.
EMKA’s hinge manufacturing capability encompasses mild steel, die-cast zinc, glass-reinforced thermo-plastic and stainless steel, to suit the environmental and aesthetic requirements of the situation. Hinge selection for cabinets with prominent doors really is not now a difficult matter, especially since our website includes a powerful drill-down architecture to guide engineers. This extensive range of enclosure hardware includes electronic locking systems, stainless steel hinges, spanner locks, wing handle/locks, 19 inch cabinet locks, HVAC locks and profile sealing strips for enclosure sealing in natural rubber, EPDM, neoprene and PVC.
