EMKA Compression Latches offer special performance for standard applications

EMKA has announced that its compression latch technology continues to be applied to standard products, so increasing the performance available for standard applications in arduous environments – e.g. to IP69 where needed.

EMKA compression latches enhance sealing and enclosure performance parameters such as security of door closure, greater envelope rigidity, more even gasket pull-down, as well as an improved user experience.

Compression latches are available ex-stock for external installations such as railways, street furniture, oil and gas facilities, specialist vehicles – e.g. motor homes, mobile caravans, static caravans, also for HVAC. They are becoming increasingly in demand for ordinary commercial/industrial situations where complete certainty of performance is required, e.g. in areas subject to wash-down or where a lock-and-forget operation is needed.

Materials include zinc-die, stainless steel and polyamide in “quarter-turn” style - 90°+90° operation (90° to close, 90° to compress), as well as swinghandle designs where operation of the lever handle creates the compression action.
