Concealed hardware for outdoor enclosures

The needs of telecommunications pillars, energy distribution cabs, electronic equipment housings and outdoor monitoring stations call for new secure designs can now be provided by EMKA in the form of concealed systems with up to IP65 protection and a high level of resistance to vandalism.

The concealed hardware available includes completely invisible mounting of all catches and hinge components so removing all directly visible points of attack. Active opening and closing is achieved by electro-mechanical operation. When opening the door swings softly out. When closing it moves to the framework and is pulled automatically into the locking device position utilising electro-mechanical locking. The concealed catch is ideal for limited space conditions. Retrofitting is possible and is not restricted by the type of enclosure.

This, coupled with identification and monitoring – by GSM, transponder system or control station as part of a security installation – offers locking, protection, monitoring and alarm functions. Traditional quarter turn or swinghandle solutions include low profile features in stainless steel, suited to thicker doors and capable of installation with rod locks if appropriate. Internal hinges are also available from the standard program.

Further information on EMKA products and services may be found at www.emka.co.uk where it is also possible to download their 3D CAD files and any part or the entire EMKA product catalogue.
