Clip-on style gasket profiles

As manufacturers of “everything but the enclosure” EMKA focus carefully on each aspect of industrial enclosure design – nowhere more so than in the production of gasket sections which are absolutely vital in the provision of effective door seals. Exclusion of fingers, tools, dust and water are essential features for all electrical and electronic cabinet installations so EMKA now offer a full range of clip-on style extruded rubber section seals. Also recognised as “P” type or “bubble” gaskets EMKA sections are a simple push fit onto the frame edge of an enclosure or vehicle body and are available with factory joined corners which provide complete integrity around the door periphery while saving time in assembly at the factory.Clip-on gaskets include a spring steel spine within the moulding to provide a strong fixing to the frame edge of the enclosure or larger cabinet.

Program 1056 180° Screw-on hinge without hinge pin

Designed to provide the same performance as the existing EMKA 1056 hinge but at reduced cost and enabling lift off door operation. This novel approach to simplification of design suits flush mounted doors and may be interchanged with the existing 1056 design with no need to modify drawings or production.   The screw-on hinge does not need the usual hinge pin by virtue of its novel design which incorporates the pin into the two separate leaves of the hinge in such a way that they can be inserted at the 270° position then become securely interlocked when the hinge is closed to 180°. This feature also enables simple door removal when required.   On the one hand, this results in significant cost advantages compared to conventional screw-on hinges with hinge pins.
