Compression locking hinge for HVAC installations

Providing HVAC manufacturers with a full multi-function hinge/latch/lock, the new concept from EMKA is designed for securing of big air conditioning units and other units similar. It provides door adjustment for correct sealing, 5mm gasket pull down with pressure relief and the ability to be used as both door lock and hinge.

This new locking hinge provides an independent 3D adjustable hinge facility integrated into a compression latch/lock with decompression function. Users can thereby adjust door alignment and open the door, either right hand or left hand hinged – or remove completely.

The decompression feature is important for HVAC allowing any over/under-pressure to be vented safely before opening. Locking options include standard round cylinder options.

The EMKA Compression latch-hinge is designed to meet the particular demands of the HVAC industry with features that provide ease of assembly, adjustability, pressure differential accommodation and flexibility for the end user.

Once assembled to the door the EMKA compression latch can be adjusted to properly mate to the cabinet by moving both vertically and horizontally. Then after installation the alignment of the latch can be adjusted to eliminate leaks. The latch will then prevent the door from opening fully until pressure has been equalised.
