Compression latches are increasingly popular for specialist cabinets and enclosures of all types – whether for their anti-vibrational characteristics or for superior sealing, and this new IP65 wing knob format version offers even wider utility. The wing knob design makes it suitable for a welter of low access security, high sealing protection roles where ingress of dust and water is a problem, but where ready access is required for personnel, for example in high security areas.
Our 1000 wing knob compression latch with IP65 rating comes in 2 types, each with a full 6mm pull-down. The basic form 1000-882 is adjustable only by use of different cams – its’ companion 1000-880 however provides extra depth adjustment with a threaded rod which considerably extends the reach to match extra deep doors or frames.

EMKA solution for the HVAC sector
The new locking hinge by EMKA meets all the criteria for securing big air-conditioning units. By using a height-adjustable hinge bracket, it also makes a precisely adjustable gasket compression possible.
EMKA has based the development of the new locking hinge for the HVAC sector not only on the national and international standards but especially on the RLT guideline 01 of the German AHU manufacturers' association (Herstellerverband Raumlufttechnische Geräte).
When opening the EMKA lock, decompression is effected in two steps: First the door is caught by an integrated, patented impact guard so that the pressure can escape from the vent ducts safely. Then the door is unlocked enabling access to the unit. The door can be closed in only one step, another distinctive feature for convenient handling by EMKA.
The quick locking system is designed for high-strength and high-density applications and thus ideally suited for boxes and flaps. The locking forces correspond to the well-known 1000 programme.
EMKA developed an ingeniously simple, thereby very cost effective but nevertheless very sturdy hinge. The clip-in hinge is distinguished for reaching a high capacity at axial load of 430 N and it is easy to assemble.
Two identical plastic hinge halves complement each other by simply clipping in to a highly resilient hinge.
By screwing the hinge, the clip-in function is suppressed. The hinge halves are highly resilient interconnected.
With the program 1001 EMKA developed a new, efficient rod guide for round rods. The rod guide is designed for 8 mm round rods and can replace the known products 1001-U11 and –U12.
Moreover the installation time is reduced by more than half because of quick assembly. Only plug the rod guide onto the weld stud. Then raise it up. The rod guide perceptibly and audibly locks in place and can be tightened with only a few rotations. After that the rod guide is mounted.
In addition this rod guide is perfectly suitable for raw and powdered weld studs, with the result of a significant optimization of process and cost savings because the covering of the weld stud during powdering is omitted. Corrosion protection remains fully intact.
By simply connecting the rod guide there are two different heights for the common weld stud versions M6 x 16mm & M6 x 20 mm. Depending on the desired height, the lower part is rotated by 90°.
The rod guide also reaches high grip forces of more than 1.000 N on powder coated weld studs. The doors can be powder coated together with the weld studs completely without special protection of the pins. The rod guide is flexibly pretensioned. For dismantling, the strap is simply lifted out of the thread flanks – simple disassembly. A lug at the rod guide can be used for the fast mounting of the flat rod. The rod guide can be positioned specifically by a corresponding bore in the flat rod. Thanks to the constructive design of the rod guide the flat rods do not rattle. The flat rods do not fall out of the rod guide when slamming the doors with extended rods.
Double security and more comfortable handling when opening and closing cabinets, doors and covers: EMKA Double Red, the new closure with double opening indicator offers all of this. The solution is especially tailored to the numerous storage boxes in caravans. Thanks to the innovative closure technology it is also suitable for additional applications in the sectors of industry and transport.
Due to a strong customer demand EMKA has decided to relaunch the chest handle 1130-U7. Advantages of this product are the flat design and being both lockable and waterproof. The chest handle can be used for the locking of shutters in the most diverse areas (i.a. mechanical engineering, transport, cabinets, etc.).
Shock and vibration-proof according to DIN EN 61373
Even from a distance, the open status is visible by a surrounding red ring.
Available with dust cover, which can only be mounted if the latch is in locked status.
With the cap installed, protection class IP65 is achieved. Material selection meets the high requirements with regard to UV resistance and aging. The holding force was proofed by a wind tunnel testing at 450 km/h over 15 min each from 4 directions. A vibration and shock-test according to DIN EN 61373, category 1, class B (enhanced test conditions) completes the ambitious test procedure
The cap fulfils the highest requirements regarding the protection of the interior locking system. In conjunction with the compression latch with visual open status indication the cap will not lock while the compression latch is open and by this means the unsecured lock is visible at any time.
In addition to the well-established quarter turn for hygienic areas 1000-U838, EMKA has now included the compression latches for hygienic areas 1000-U861 and 1000-U862 in its range of products. As in the case of 1000-U838, the components of the 1000-U862 that are outside the appliance meet the hygiene requirements and the relevant specifications of the BGN (German "Berufsgenossenschaft Nahrungsmittel und Gastgewerbe" - statutory accident insurance institution for foods, hotels, restaurants and catering) Furthermore, the compression latch for hygienic areas 1000-U861 complies with these also inside the appliance.
The stainless steel compression latches for hygienic areas comply with the relevant standards for hygienic areas
DIN EN ISO 14159, DIN EN 1672-2, DIN 10516
and meet specifically the following requirements:
Biometrical access control system
Access control must not end at the entrace door to the data centre!
Biometrical access control, combined with the proven and tested electromechanical swing handles of EMKA, result in significantly increased security with regard to access control for racks in data centres.
Whether single server rack or complete data centre, simple, double or triple authentification or the four-eyes principle - this system stands for ultimate security to protect assets and data.
Exposure to the elements all year round, vibrations on the roadside or vandalism - outdoor switch cabinets are exposed to increased stresses. To protect theses boxes EMKA has developed the outdoor program 1317.
With its robust swinghandles EMKA provides a wide range of solutions: from the cost-efficient plastic variation up to the high-quality electromechanical lock of zinc die cast. The whole range was developed in the in-house technology centre. With regard to the design the focus was put on the special tightness and increased vandalism protection of the locks. The clearances between handle and dish have been made so small that no screwdriver fits in. In addition, the surfaces are as smooth as possible so that no dirt can accumulate or graffiti adhere to them.
By this new swinghandle, the program 1185 is complemented through an elegant swinghandle with a flat design in a robust zinc die version. Thus, its use can be extended even to outdoor areas. Due to the use of a cam or a rod control, there are hardly set any limits to the fields of application. Range of application
The product program 1325 is the successor system to the tried and trusted programs 1125 und 1225.
The new swinghandle 1325 range will prove itself with its technology advances and superior design quality of EMKA as well as sophisticated ergonomics. All these advantages, combined with functional innovation, such as the locking system which can be exchanged quick and easily, have led to our success with “IF PRODUCT DESIGN AWARD 2013”.
for Ts 1.5 or 2.0 mm
A lift-off hinge made of stainless steel precision casting with an opening angle of 180°. It is designed for an application with framework constructions for prominent doors with a bending of 20 mm. The hinge is available for door gauges (Ts) of 1.5 or 2.0 mm.
The new single cylinder swinghandle has successfully passed the WK2 DIN V ENV 1630 test (RC2, resistance class 2 tested). Versions for profile half cylinder (40 or 45 mm) as well as for KABA-cylinders are available. In the electromechanical version the locking cylinder is replaced by a blank plug. During the construction phase previously mentioned locking cylinders can be mounted in addition for mechanical override.
