The “Rack Pack” from EMKA – “everything but the 19 inch Rack”
- Published: Thursday, 23 June 2016 08:44
EMKA’s modular approach to locks, hinges and sealing for electrical/electronic housings of all types spreads to the now traditional 19" Rack by way of swinghandles, rod locks, hinges and gaskets designed specifically to suit their indoor application.
Swinghandles – within our present generation a novelty but now ubiquitous – have found a particular place in the world of electronic racking by way of their stylish appearance and narrow footprint. The 1325 program is a prime example of this successful design configuration – in particular it offers quick fitting with standard cut-outs and the ability to exchange locking sets – profile half cylinder, electromechanical, round cylinder and insert may be exchanged at any time with IP40 or IP65 sealing. The swinghandle design is particularly suited to multi-point closure using either round or flat rod systems – many of which are available to suit specific requirements.
Situated indoors such electronic racks require primarily simple protection against ingress of solid objects including dust, so the preferred choice is usually selected from the 1016 closed cell, self-adhesive series – with the alternative 1038 section available where an edge fitted profile is required.
Lightweight and narrow doors of course require matching hinges with minimal ingress into the door itself – such a system is the 1032 in steel or stainless steel to fit 22 or 26mm door returns. Fitted and dismounted quickly with removable hinge pins, the 1032 program offers 120° opening for suited racks.
