At Euroblech, Emka will present an outdoor swivel handle of the Iloq closure technology and a novel screw-on hinge without hinge pin. At booth D34 in hall 17, Emka will be presenting closure and sealing technology on an area of around 100 m2.
At this year’s EuroBlech, Emka will be focusing on special closure systems and hinges. The reason for this is an ever-increasing demand for energy-autonomous, digital closure solutions. Emka has responded to this need with the newly developed outdoor swing handle for “iLOQ-S50” profile half cylinders.
The new locking system combines a mechanical handle from the 1317 program with the electronic profile half cylinder from the Finnish company Iloq. This allows the lock to be unlocked with NFC-enabled Android/iOS smartphones with an app or by digital key (“iLOQ K55S Fob”). An administrator controls the access data required for this via a cloud-based SaaS platform.
In addition, the shutter solution is uncomplicated to use with the standard 1317 swivel handle, as it does not require a stationary power supply or battery. The energy to open the lock is transferred via NFC from the smartphone or key. Thus, the closure is particularly interesting for use in the telecommunications industry, since outdoor enclosures and telecommunications cabinets are also often found in remote locations.
Screw-on hinge without hinge pin
In Hanover, Emka is also presenting a new screw-on hinge without a hinge pin and thus a cost-effective alternative to conventional hinges. The design allows tool-free assembly within seconds. To do this, the fitter inserts the two identical hinge halves into each other in the 270° position. He then swivels the assembled hinge halves to the 180° position. The two halves are now firmly connected, even without a hinge pin.
In addition to three different sizes (60 x 60 mm, 50 x 50 mm and 40 x 40 mm), customers can also choose from four different materials and several finishes: These include polyamide (injection-molded glass-fiber-reinforced plastic), zinc (die-cast, black powder-coated or chrome-plated), aluminum (die-cast, black powder-coated or anthracite anodized), and stainless steel (investment casting, ground or industrially polished). The choice of material brings with it various advantages.
