They understand that the need for high performing locking solutions increases as the protection of data and equipment has become more important. The company are now offering robust mechanical and advanced electronic locking systems for switch and control cabinets to give a high level of protection against unwanted access.


The company's locking solutions are ideal for industrial application including manufacturing environments, processing systems, traffic control, utilities, e.g., water, waste, electric supply including solar and wind power, for indoor and outdoor environments including public safety areas.


EMKA UK, MD, Andy Billingham explained: “We are continuously adding to our extensive portfolio of solutions for this area in some 52 countries together with appropriate hinges and gasket/sealing profiles. As an engineering company ourselves, we have been continuously developing innovations in series production for over 40 years and have repeatedly been recognised as world market leader for locking solutions, hinges and gaskets in the field of switch and control cabinets.

Individual cabinets and enclosures, double door and suited cabinets commonly demand sealing up to IP 65 with lay on or insert doors, and the company are aware that this needs the usage of round or flat rod systems to give single, double triple or even five-way locking. Its engineers offer systems which are swiftly fitted in production with adjustable length rods, clip-on rod guides and lock mounted actuator mechanisms together with handles and escutcheons offering low external profile and extra security options such as double locks, pad-lockable variants and extra narrow lift handles.
