New advanced design of lock program offered in a mini package

22-05-2023 | Emka | Industrial

Due to customer feedback and engineering developments, EMKA has released a significant addition to their 2225 locking program. The 2225 program is an innovative and flexible lock design provided in a miniature format which delivers IP66 sealing and accepts many locking sets, all interchangeable from the front of the housing for normal or compression operation with half cylinder or round cylinder, KABA or standard inserts, including double bit or railway types. The system caters for usage with many application security classes across industrial enclosures and specialist vehicles.

The advanced design of this new lock program is made achievable in a mini package (with 70mm x 25mm cut out) by the company's advanced hardware technology, including a flat external design which stands only 9mm above the door so that it can be employed in various space critical applications. Whether as a closure for wall panels in railway vehicles, as a HotSpot cover on telecommunication housings, as a closure on waste bin housings or electric charging columns, and much more. Its flat design and magnetically retained swinghandle make it excellent for areas with narrow passageways, escape routes, or design-oriented enclosures.

In this new patented design, customers can loosen the two lower screws on the rear side so that the locking set can be removed from the front and replaced. Other standard inserts, including the push button from the 2225-U57, can also be implemented if needed. Alternately, on request, the swinghandle without compression function can also be incorporated with a multi-point locking system.

With its compact design, the swinghandle with compression function is smaller than any other existing compression locks available in combination with a DIN or KABA cylinder but still provides a full 6mm compression. Also, this compression latch can be locked and unlocked with all locking devices, including the small EK 333 key, which is impossible with conventional compression latches, as the keys are often too weak and can break. The pre-assembled swinghandle and dish feature integrated scratch protection to stop surface damage.
