EMKA locking solutions for outdoor cabinets

1 min read

Multifunctional enclosures or cable distributor cabinets can be found on almost every street corner, serving the community by bringing telephone, internet and TV signals into nearby houses.

Water supply, traffic management (traffic light systems etc.) electricity suppliers and 5G providers also locate their infrastructure in such cabinets. These facilities are highly sensitive and have become a popular target for vandals to destroy or to strip out valuable copper wiring.

EMKA have therefore included new cabinet hardware guidance on its website for the benefit of design and production engineers, linking to the most appropriate locks, handles, hinges and gasket products, in order to facilitate highly secure locking systems as protection for these sensitive units.

EMKA directs users to locking solutions and hinges with appropriate temperature resistance, vandalism security - with resistance class RC2 DIN EN 1630 or with special graffiti protection. Also described is a broad range of locks and hinges for simpler installation areas in less-exposed areas as well.

For opening and closing of the cabinets where electronic connectivity is required, EMKA offers a choice between networked electronic solutions. These include remote monitoring and locking solutions with double-profile half-cylinders according to DIN EN 18252-BZ or DIN EN 1303 with attack resistance class 2, and drilling and pulling protection.
