Widening capability in HVAC industries


Recently taking part in the 2017 AHR Expo in Las Vegas, EMKA showed its range of locks, handles, hinges and gaskets designed to meet the present trends in this fast developing marketplace, to support its widening capability in the HVAC related industries.

EMKA were able to exhibit to the 60,000 audience of HVACR engineers its complete programme dealing with thick doors, IP65 sealing, personal safety (inner door handles), large handles (for gloved hands), corrosion-resistance, heavy door weights, external viewing requirement, multi-level access (e.g. padlocking), inset handles, compression locking, pressure relief prior to opening, corner frame pieces, lifting lugs and much more.

This very special package of HVAC hardware – in fact ‘everything but the enclosure’ for air-con, heating and refrigeration panels, includes thick insulated doors and panels requiring plastic handles to give a more comfortable grip, and plastic components to eliminate thermal bridging from one side to the other.

Large operating elements such as handles allow for thick gloves and safety features are needed, such as the ability to open doors from inside.

The range on show at AHR Expo included its new compression locking hinge with multi-function hinge/latch/lock for securing of big air conditioning units and similar – it provides door adjustment for correct sealing, 5mm gasket pull down with pressure relief and the ability to be used both as a hinge and a lock without adjustment.

The full exhibit featured many long bodied 0.25 turn locks, as well as traditional T and L compression handles with full 6mm gasket pull down facility. Where complete panel removal is required then a bridge clamp system is offered, along with lifting handles. Heavy duty and adjustable hinges facilitate door fitment – while frame components include corner pieces and heavy duty lifting/transport lugs.
