Polyamide range keep hinge costs in cheques

The company that claims to be able to supply 'everything but the enclosure', EMKA is offering another way for specialist enclosure builders to reduce their costs.

The firm is now offering polyamide versions of the popular 1056 series butt hinges at cost reductions of up to half of the equivalent zinc die hinge price, dependent upon size

The 1056 hinge in black polyamide comes in 40mm and 50mm sizes with stainless steel pins to ensure smooth operation, even in corrosive situations. They are ideal for wall mount style cabinets or machine access panels and are complemented with EMKA's full range of spanner locks, wing handles and over 500 extruded rubber sealing door gasket profiles in EPDM, neoprene and PVC.
