Popular quarter turn locks get IP66 sealing

A tried and tested series of quarter turn locks from EMKA has received a significant upgrade which enables an improved level of sealing.

Customers may now order the 1000 series with sealing to IP66. Panel builders can now achieve higher sealing specification for completed cabinets, which is demanded for food processing industries and outdoor environments where high levels of sealing are required to meet safety considerations so as to protect against driving ran and hosing-down with power washers.

The sealing upgrade is achieved by use of additional internal O-rings and a door mounting seal, which ensure ease of operation as well as improving sealing. The IP66 upgrade may also be used either as a retrofit installation or in production by specialist builders who may chose to carry the standard IP65 lock type for general use and then to specify the IP66 kit for hasher environments. This can greatly simplify all levels of the stocking and fitting process.

The series has an extensive range of insert locks to suit, from triangular, double-bit, square, hexagonal, slotted, crown to hex with centre pin, and other specialist types for rail, automotive and to complement Eastern European specifications. And the 1000 series is claimed to be easy to assemble. Since they use a single door cut out, the assembled lock may be readily inserted from the front of the cabinet and the locking nut slid over to complete installation in two easy steps.
