Locking on to specialist requirements

The EMKA Program 1000 range is designed to meet the needs of specialist cabinet and enclosure manufacturers for reliable door closure in industrial and outdoor situations.

They are said to be derived from EMKA’s engineering expertise in modular hardware.

Program 1000 Large Quarter-Turn latches and locks offer IP65 protection against ingress of dust and water across a selection of zinc-die, engineered plastic and stainless steel items. Standard configurations suit a variety of general applications with traditional insert key and cylinder lock options, wing knobs, as well as T and L handles. Padlockable types are part of the 1000 program.

For niche applications, EMKA offers special shrouded inserts, compression latch mechanisms and hygiene designs with smooth cavity-free surfaces for wash-down areas in food and similar processing areas.

Specialist vehicles and utilities are further discrete areas for locking hardware served by the 1000 program, including appropriate industry standards such as Swedish Power EBR, ASSA cylinders, interlocked tamper- and vibration-proof types, along with FIAT and European national railway versions.
