EMKA has improved the level of sealing provided by its 1000 series of quarter-turn locks.

Customers may now order the new IP66 option, with the result that panel builders can readily 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.

The EMKA 1000 series of quarter-turn locks has received a upgrade that enables an improved level of sealing.

The EMKA 1000 series of quarter-turn locks has received a upgrade that enables an improved level of sealing.

The sealing upgrade is achieved by use of additional internal 'O' rings and a door-mounting seal to ensure ease of operation and improve 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 harsher environments.

This can greatly simplify all levels of the stocking and fitting process.

EMKA's 1000 series of quarter-turn locks 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 east European specifications.

In particular the 1000 series quarter-turn locks are extremely 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.
