A white paper has been written by EMKA’s Managing Director, Andy Billingham, in which discusses how new demands in the area of industrial security drive a continuous development process in tandem with new materials and production technologies.
In the paper Billingham suggests these demands may be most easily categorised as:
The white paper explains how in turn these have an effect on usage of materials and the design concept. In this respect the trend is toward increasing sophistication – it’s no longer acceptable to open a control or data cabinet with a screwdriver if you don’t have the key.
So where once a wing knob latch was sufficient it is important to consider the need for keylocks – perhaps to IP65 or even IP69 and the option of vibration resistant compression locks which prevent nuisance door opening, as well as more complete gasket pull-down and consistently higher IP sealings.
Other demands call for other materials such as high grade engineering plastics and yet other technologies – leading us to Biometric locking and three tier security.
