For many years the EMKA slogan has been “Everything but the Enclosure” – intended to convey their commitment to providing enclosure hardware so that specialist metal workers and panel makers can manufacture high quality enclosures which suit the needs of the electrical controls industry and the many other related industries who share the same physical protection criteria for personnel and equipment – “encapsulated” as it were in the IP rating system.
To this end EMKA have developed a very focused modular approach to quarter-turn locks, also for hinges as well as gasket sealing strips – together these form a complete component package for wall mounted enclosures, encompassing both lay-on doors and recessed construction, with the possibility for sealing levels from IP44 to IP55 and IP66.
In particular EMKA focus on the program 1000 wing knobs in non-locking or locking variants to IP65 and available in chrome or black zinc die, as well as black polyamide.
A locking door needs hinges of course, and for wall mount enclosures the 1069 series concealed hinges are ideal for lay-on door enclosures and may be fixed with studs, machine screws, weld studs or welded on. They feature easily removable hinge pins and 120° opening.
Sealing of course completes the door installation and here EMKA offer the 1016 self-adhesive closed cell rubber gasket strip in sizes from 10mm x 3mm up to 80mm x 40mm.
In 3 simple steps EMKA enable the custom/OEM enclosure builder a purpose-built package to complete most common types of wall mounted enclosure.
