Stainless Steel Hardware for Stainless Steel Enclosures

Locks, hinges and gasket from EMKA for stainless steel enclosures

Our EMKA program of stainless steel  locks and stainless steel hinges – along with suitable gasket sealing profiles – is ideal for specialist stainless steel enclosures or for grp and highly finished steel housings where there is a need for high corrosion resistance and/or the high strength of stainless steel.

This excellent utility largely stems from the EMKA modular design approach which has provided panel builders with a selection of ¼ turn locks and latches to IP65, including many with a compression function for enhanced sealing and vibration resistance. Indeed their compression hygiene latch takes this a stage further with an exceptionally clean design intended to leave no hiding place for aggregation of dirt in between the cleaning cycle.

A typical matching hinge selection is likely to come from our 1056 and 1079 program of screw-on/lift-off hinges. The 1079 for example being designed with chamfered ends for simple cleaning, e.g. in the food processing industry – also 1046 series for flush doors and concealed within the cabinet for added protection in wash-down areas.

With locks and hinges in place a stainless steel enclosure of course needs a suitable means of sealing – which we provide with our 1011-06 gasket in EPDM which incorporates a self-grip feature designed to suit the double flange construction often used on stainless steel enclosures for the greater rigidity that this confers.
