Special handles and locks

EMKA is promoting its range of specialist handles and locks designed for electrical cabinets, 19-inch racks, roadside cabinets, wall-boxes, cabinet suites, motor control centres, and related applications.

The 1225 series offers "extremely simple fitment with screw-in assembly, IP65 protection, or hook-in fixing to meet IP54 standards", says EMKA's Andy Billingham.

Units can be locking or non-locking with various key combinations including EMKA keys and other generic key-lock types. The range covers swing-handle options with a variety of locking solutions, some with fixed barrels, profile cylinders, padlock variants, or special security options.

"An important feature is the flexibility of the 1225 configuration", says Andy Billingham. "Single, double, three-point, and five-point closure is possible. This is achieved with a standard three-point cam and round rod system giving single, double, and three-point options with shoot bolt rods, straight rods, roller ends (for smoother compression), and special variants to suit unusual applications.

This is further extended by EMKA's standard multi-point flat rod system which adds to the options with various catching methodologies to complement different gasket compression requirements; for example, twisted rods, roller rods, hooked rods, and leading edge slides."
