Getting to grips with HVAC

In support of their widening capability in the HVAC related industries, EMKA recently took part in an Expo in Las Vegas, where they showed their range of locks, handles, hinges and gasket designed to meet the present trends in this fast developing marketplace. 

EMKA were able to exhibit to the 60,000 audience of HVACR engineers their complete program dealing with thick doors, IP65 sealing, personal safety (inner door handles etc.), large handles (for gloved hands), corrosion-resistance, heavy door weights, external viewing requirement, multi-level access (e.g. padlocking), inset handles, compression locking, pressure relief prior to opening, corner frame pieces, lifting lugs and much more.

This very special package of HVAC hardware – in fact “everything but the enclosure” for air-con, heating and refrigeration panels, includes thick insulated doors and panels requiring plastic handles to give a more comfortable grip, and plastic components to eliminate thermal bridging from one side to the other. Large operating elements such as handles allow for thick gloves and safety features are needed, such as the ability to open doors from inside.

The range on show included their new compression locking hinge with multi-function hinge/latch/lock for securing of big air conditioning units and similar – it provides door adjustment for correct sealing, 5mm gasket pull down with pressure relief and the ability to be used both as a hinge and a lock without adjustment.
The full exhibit featured many long bodied ¼ turn locks, as well as traditional T and L compression handles with full 6mm gasket pull down facility. Where complete panel removal is required then a bridge clamp system is offered, along with lifting handles. Heavy duty and adjustable hinges facilitate door fitment – while frame components include corner pieces and heavy duty lifting/transport lugs.
