EMKA hardware package for specialist industrial cabinets

Free standing control cabinets, suites of cabinets, industrial cabinets for many purposes, all share the need for secure door closure and sealing - which is where EMKA come in with their package of "everything but the cabinet".

Typically, door closure is taken care of with a traditional L handle such as the 1000 program, either non-locking or key locked and available in chrome or black zinc die, as well as in polyamide. Manual operation is normally facilitated by one of EMKA's modular rod locking systems - using either round or flat rods supported by a choice of some 17 rod guide designs which enable robust and quick assembly of a multi-point closure system. Multi-point closure implies a compressible gasket to provide sealing and a suitable solution is often the 1011 series of clip-on "P" section sealing strips which grip the cabinet flange so as to seal on the door.

Hinging for such an installation is often provided by the 1110 program of quick-fit 180° hinges. These robust chrome or black zinc die hinges may be rapidly fitted/demounted by virtue of their pull out retaining hinge pin with the whole assembly securely concealed behind the door flange.

Packaging Air Conditioning Systems

EMKA UK - as market leaders in enclosure hardware - are very aware of the special needs of the HVAC market which often calls for vibration resistance and adjustability of large access doors mounted on sturdy easily demountable hinges.

The EMKA solution is typically a package of their program 1000 compression T handle latch/lock, or similar L handle or wing handle. These offer convenient quarter-turn operation with cylinder key lock, plus a full 6mm compression of the gasket, so guarding against spurious door opening under vibration conditions.

Heavy duty program 1046 weld-on or bolt-on hinges with concealed fittings and removable hinge pins accommodate both the weight of large doors and the need to remove them quickly - factors which can also call for adjustable hinges. Frequently the 1054 3D hinge is required to deal with this situation.

Sealing of these doors is often best facilitated by use of the 1011-09 right angle clip-on EPDM profile strip with integral D section to prevent ingress of liquids and solids.

New colour printing on enclosure hardware

The "Everything but the Enclosure" people at EMKA have just made life a little bit easier for specialist enclosure and cabinet builders - they can now offer standard 2 colour pad printing onto swinghandles, drawing pockets, air conditioning handles, drawer handles, L handles, T handles and even hinges as required.

Typical print requirements include corporate presentation, e.g. logos etc., safety information, operational directions (pull, push, rotate, slide down etc.), also technical information e.g. 400VAC etc. or other design graphics for branding.

While 2 colour is standard, more colours are possible to special request.
