IP65 compression latch range now includes new variants

03 November 2011

EMKA’s 1000 Program of IP65 compression latches now includes a range of lockable T handle, Wingknob, Square key and L handle variants, with shaft extensions to suit unusually deep door frames up to 95mm. This extendable shaft variant provides additional depth capability and also permits manual clamping adjustment by means of a threaded feature at the inner end. This enables the compression action to be fine tuned by adjusting the shaft mounted lock nut.

The 1000 program compression latches (IP65) provide a 6mm axial clamp function so that after closing, when the lock is turned for its first 90° the tab is rotated 90° then stops, as the lock is turned a further 90° this rotation is translated into linear motion bringing the tab 6mm toward the door, thus clamping firmly onto the door frame. This action ensures a very high degree of vibration resistance, as well as added clamping force on the gasket and a "soft" closure action on the door frame. Unlocking is a simple reverse process.

The new extension shaft variants enable these benefits to be achieved with door and frame combinations up to 95mm deep. The square key insert version is also available in standard length for normal depth cabinet door configurations. EMKA’s range of enclosure hardware includes electronic locking systems, stainless steel hinges, spanner locks, wing handle/locks, 19in cabinet locks, HVAC locks and profile sealing strips for enclosure sealing in natural rubber, EPDM, neoprene and PVC.
