EMKA introduces new stainless compression latch design

08 October 2019

EMKA, a German-based company with locations in North America, has announced its stainless steel hygiene compression latches now come with both rounded/double flat key inserts, and a new triangular key insert latch for improved security, which makes this quarter turn program for hygienic areas more secure against unauthorized access. The compression latch program meets hygiene standard DIN EN 1672- and DIN EN 14159 to protection level IP 65 with gaskets that meet the requirements of the FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and VO 1395/2004.

It is notable that the compression design of these latches offer tamper and vibration resistance for most industrial installations, and brings together two well-known factors - the well-understood benefits of stainless steel, and the proven design/engineering technologies of EMKA, in its range of specialist latches and locks for industrial cabinets and enclosures.

EMKA expertise enables the corrosion-resistance and ultimate strength of stainless steel to be developed into the robust longevity of these locking products which therefore enable engineers to ‘fit-and-forget’ confident that designed-for-purpose high quality designs mean that these products save time and replacements costs over their lifetime of service in hygiene, corrosion and wash-down areas.

The EMKA stainless steel locks and latches program includes quarter-turns, hygiene/wash-down locks, conventional L and T handles, space-saving swing handles and rod mechanisms, compression locks, safety locks (vibration proof with built-in cover to exclude dirt), ring handle, wing knobs, padlock handles and heavy-duty latches.
