EMKA has announced a comprehensive range of door locking hardware for the railway industry
EMKA says the new range is suited to specialist cabinets both on-board and lineside, as well as for passenger doors and storage lockers. Train installations remain rigorous with respect to safety requirements: regulations on fire protection play a major role in this area and EMKA provides its customers with complete systems consisting of closures, hinges, sealing and accessories which comply with these rail industry standards. In addition, the company also offers a range of purpose-designed seals for interior and exterior use, which are integrated in a closure program specifically for the railway industry.
This new Railway range is signposted in the new EMKA guidelines on its website which connects to a wider range of locking solutions with manufacturing and production control process certified to ISO 9001. EMKA also provides individual special solutions derived from new customer design requirements. Typical examples include a compression latch with a flap and an optical opening indicator with an integral 90° opening flap: it serves as visual opening indicator, which is clearly visible when lock status is either open or uncompressed.
There is also a quarter-turn railway lock for use outside the gasketed area and a railway compression latch with opening indicator – the lock is both tamper and vibration proof as is the EMKA Safety latch lock with status marking. Further, there is a 90° 3D Hinge with integrated 3D adjustment by use of eccentric discs and a 180° concealed Gear hinge with 180° opening angle.
