Quarter turn for quick mounting and freely designed foil
EMKA extends its range of quarter turns for quick mounting. The new quarter turn for quick mounting comes with a housing plate with a custom-made foil that shows e.g. a company logo or a material imitation like matt chrome, brushed stainless steel or any other optic. EMKA uses the In-Mold-Labeling process (IML) to firmly connect the foil with the housing plate in just one operation during the plastic injection molding. The results of the IML are custom-made foiled plates for the polyamide quarter turns with surfaces that are both sturdy and ambitious. The quarter turn for quick mounting can be snapped-in in only 2 steps within a few seconds and also change its locking direction easily from left to right.

Slide shoe for cam
EMKA's new slide shoe for all common steel and stainless steel cams protects the cabinet frame from damage caused by steel-to-steel contact of cam to frame.
Product description / product benefits
- Tool-free assembly and disassembly on all common cams (steel / stainless steel)
- The slide shoe prevents scratches on the cabinet, therefore no paint or material abrasion
- Improved closing behavior and lower closing torque due to its good sliding characteristics
The slide shoe is easily attachable to all common steel and stainless steel cams. Please note: The shoe increases the height dimension (H) of the cam by 2 mm! By using a slide shoe the cabinet frame is not only protected against damages, also the closing torque is significantly reduced due to the avoidance of steel to steel contact– especially with stainless steel cabinets. The same result will be achieved by using the ramp 1000-U858 (Online catalogue page 1C-170).

- Further versions of snap-in pins with regard to the height dimension on request
- Cost saving by tool-less assembly within seconds
- Basic principle of this patented solution:
the higher the closing force, the greater the tightness
- Snap-in pin with safety cap for better insolation of the insert
- High IP-protection (IP 69K)
- High safeguarding against overwinding
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.

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 6 mm 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.
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.
- Cost savings within seconds by completely toolless mounting
- Acoustic and visual control when locking the locking lug
- Locking force up to 250N (correspond to 1000 programme zinc die version)
- Smooth handling (concept related no inner tension)
- high IP-protection (IP 69K)
- self-sealing design for highest protection claims (concept related)
- High safety to prevent overrevving
- Extended capture range/compression of 4.0 mm (1000 programme 3.0 mm standard-cam)
- Reduced scratch tendency at the enclosure frame
- 100% corrosion resistant (completely made of PA6 GF30)
New Clip-in hinge
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.
- Plastic hinge consisting of two identical hinge halves
- Mounting by plugging the two halves together
- "Pinning" is provided by two spring-loaded pins
- Spring effect is cancelled by fixation to the frame/at the door
- Suitable for supporting high radial and axial loads
- Standard cut out 1056 program
- Completely made of PA6 GF30
- Patent protected
With the program 1001 EMKA developed a new, efficient rod guide for round rods. The rod guide 1001-U47 is designed for 8 mm round rods and can replace the known products
1001-U11 and 1001-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°.
- Intelligent plug-in mounting
- Suitable for raw and powdered weld studs
- Despite the ultra-smooth fast installation of this application the strength of the overall application is reduced in no way
- Completely made of PA6 GF30
- Patent protected
- Cost saving by smooth, completely toolless mounting within a few seconds
- Easy use also on powdered weld studs and corresponding cost reduction / process optimization for the customer as the covering of the weld studs can be omitted during the surface treatment and corrosion protection therefore remains fully intact
- Simplified stock-keeping (1 product for 2 heights)
- 100% corrosion resistant (completely made of PA6 GF30)
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.
- standard market storage box locking systems 1:1 replaceable
- 2 clearly visible opening indicators
- locking only in closed position
- shock and vibration-proof according to DIN EN 61373
- compression path 6 mm
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.).
- Door thickness 1 – 5,5 mm
- Flat design (5,5 mm)
- Retractable handle is applicable left and righthand
- Two bridge clamps, set at different levels
- Applicable for large door thickness area
- Large clamping area (1,5 bis 57 mm) is covered

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.
