Flush compression handles offer increase safety and sealing

A range of flush compression latches and handles from EMKA is claimed to increase safety by not having external projections to catch on clothing. This also presents a neater streamlined visual appearance to specialist cabinets, which minimises opportunities for vandalism by reducing access for tools.

This design, says the manufacturer, combined with compression technology, creates a lock resistant to vibration with no nuisance opening and provides consistent and adjustable compression to optimise sealing with extruded profile sealing strips in materials like EPDM, neoprene or PVC. These flush compression locks can be used on specialist enclosures, doors, access panels and storage lockers or vibration prone vehicles.

The EMKA 1130 series includes a retractable compression T handle and two styles of compression flush lever handles with pop-out release. Cad drawings are available to download from the EMKA website.
