Resistant swinghandles outfox the vandals

The latest Protector series vandal resistant swing handles from EMKA has been designed for the streets – with WK2 certification (to DIN V ENV 1630) and anti-graffiti coating. They are intended specifically for outdoor service and supply cabinets, from street furniture to railways, parks and industrial developments.

The IP65 Protector swing handle range features EMKA's new interchangeable barrel system for 40mm and 45mm profile half cylinders which allows barrels to be swapped out and replaced at any stage. The handle will accept both cylindrical and EMKA keyhole style barrels. Construction is in rugged zinc die or reinforced polyamide with robust sliding lock cover in large and small swing handle sizes to suit 130mm or 105mm panel cut-outs.

Readers can download relevant 3D Cad files and any part or the entire EMKA product catalogue from the website or follow the company's progress on its blog at http://www.emkablog.co.uk.
