Rugged hinges for COVID barriers and shields

08-10-2020 | Emka | Subs & Systems

The construction of COVID protective 'spit screens' or barriers is made simpler with rugged 1056 program hinges from EMKA. Supermarket checkouts, shop cashpoints and other public service positions are able to add the flexibility of hinged protection panels by the usage of these surface-mounted hinges in stainless steel, zinc die or polyamide – in metal finish or black.

Particularly, the lift-off hinge is often favoured, while the torque adjustable device finds application where the rapid opening is needed without the requirement for a lock.

The program hinges are offered with stud fixings for speed and ease of assembly or with screw facilities. Specific versions are provided to match common aluminium profile frames.
