Latch Locks catalogue for special sectors

2nd March 2020
Alex Lynn

The EMKA 2020 catalogue and online offering expresses renewed emphasis on hardware for niche industries where locks and latches are required to meet particular criteria appropriate to sectors such as railways, HVAC, hygiene areas and caravans/mobile homes and trailers.

These sectors frequently call for higher degrees of IP sealing, e.g. IP69K, and for special hygiene-compatible designs involving especially smooth finished stainless steel without crevices and with food grade plastic sealing components. Large handles for operation with gloved hands, specialist accessories for lock protection at high speeds, integral pressure relief or anti-vibration compression features are further aspects of this offering.

For sheer convenience the EMKA quarter-turn program and its variants are most popular. Not only are they quick and easy to install, they are simple and comfortable to use, with many options and accessories such as safety shielded inserts, padlocks, friction reducing elements and colour indicators, e.g. for mobile homes/trailers. Interior handles as well offer a safety feature for walk-in cabinets. Transport and transit applications often call for flap or paddle latch locks, toggle latches or slam bolts.

The EMKA program portrayed in their 2020 catalogue and website illustrates a wide variety of ex-stock items for specialist hardware users who need application-appropriate products as standard.
