Locking Solutions for Switch and Control Cabinets

EMKA - world market leader for locking systems in switch cabinets and control cabinets

Our locking systems characterize the way in which doors of control cabinets are locked. Our innovative multi-point locking systems are usually moved by a swing handle. When the swing handle is operated from the outside, the rotary movement is transmitted through the door leaf of the control cabinet to the rod control on the inside of the door. The rod control transfers the axial rotary movement into a vertical movement of the two rods. The rods lock the door at two or more locking points with the casing.

Matching locks and hinges for every application

In particular the switch cabinet design as a row cabinet, as a cabinet with double door or as a single cabinet has an effect on the selection of the hinges. Our hinges offer all possibilities for internal or surface mounted doors and for all desired opening angles.

You decide whether the hinge may be visible from the outside or hidden and invisible. We offer the right solution for locking inside or outside the door seal and for any type of clearances and canting spaces.

Complete locking systems from one single source

At EMKA you get a complete locking solution for your switch and control cabinets from one source: from individual quarter turns to complex multi-point locking systems and suitable hinges.

If your control cabinets need special requirements in terms of IP protection or UL ratings (against dust and water or for fire protection), you have also found the right partner for the seals in EMKA. For the quarter turns alone, over 15,000 of our products already have American UL certification. Please contact us!
