EMKA’s new stainless steel locks and hinges are pitched as ideal for specialist stainless steel enclosures or for GRP and lightly finished steel housings where there is a need for high corrosion resistance and/or the high strength of stainless steel.
EMKA’s modular design approach provides panel builders with a selection of ¼ turn locks and latches to IP65, including many with a compression function for enhanced sealing and vibration resistance. The compression hygiene latch takes this a stage further with a clean design intended to leave no hiding place for dirt accumulation in between the cleaning cycle.
The brands said its EMKA 1056 and 1079 program of screw-on/lift-off hinges provide potential matching hinge selections – the 1079 has chamfered ends for simple cleaning, making it ideal for industries like food processing – and also the 1046 series for flush doors and concealed within the cabinet for added protection in wash-down areas.
With locks and hinges in place, a stainless steel enclosure needs a suitable means of sealing – which EMKA provides with its 1011-06 gasket in EPDM which incorporates a self-grip feature designed to suit the double flange construction often used on stainless steel enclosures for the greater rigidity that this confers.
