A solution to wind and gravity

The problem with many doors and access panels is often that they have a large surface area that’s easily caught by wind and able to generate a lot of force. This makes maintenance or installation/updates a difficult problem and potentially a painful one. Similar problems exist where a door/panel is opened against gravity or perhaps is in a position where passers-by may knock it closed.

EMKA offers a range of cover stays and door stops in a variety of configurations including manually operated locking or self-operating as the panel is opened/closed. A simple stay may be a folding type, or a sliding type door stop with a moving prop. Otherwise, telescopic types offer a longer mechanical prop, spreading the loads over a wider range. Button release or push-click operation is also available.
