Access Control and Equipment Protection

Our standard modular and custom designs provide access control and equipment protection by means of simple quarter-turn locks on electrical or electronic control cabinets, all the way to highly sophisticated, high security, bio-technology systems for complete Data Centres. This includes our BioLock “fingerprint-at- the-handle” technology which provides physical protection against data theft by hardware removal or direct server access.

Locking Systems

EMKA Locking Systems for single and multi-point applications are extremely flexible and in most circumstances, permit installation into a single punched hole, also including a wide range of Compression Locks.

EMKA Locking Systems include both round and flat Rod Controls – with both screw on and weld on possibilities, multiple length options and quick installation designs. Rod systems enable multi-point door closure together with the full range of EMKA swinghandles as well as T and L handles if required. Rods may be cut to required length with a number of rod actuating mechanisms to permit preferred operation and cost levels.


The EMKA hinge programme is comprehensive, including products for most applications. Concealed, lift-off, mechanically fastened, weld on, polyamide and stainless steel versions are available.


EMKA Handle products include an extensive range of bridge style handles – sometimes known as bow or pull handles – covering plastic moulded, steel, aluminium and plastic and tubular types, many are suitable for use in manufacturing areas while others are intended for offices or similar environments. All are designed to match industrial needs at functional and ergonomic levels.


EMKA Gasketing materials are self-gripping sealing profiles with no permanent memory and can be installed in one piece without being mitred.

Toggle Latches

EMKA Toggle Latches are ideal for quick action closure for boxes, cases, cabinets, luggage, and equipment.

Air Conditioning applications

EMKA Air Conditioning products cover the requirements of thick insulated door installation with long shafted large grip latch handles – available with various locking options of keylock and padlock. Large hinges and recessed door pulls help to complete the installation.

Stainless Steel Program

For many years EMKA have operated on the basis of supplying “everything but the enclosure” and increasingly they are also finding that “everything in stainless steel” is the demand for cabinet hardware as installations find more aggressive environments and more challenging regulations. Industries such as food processing and pharmaceuticals have become much more sophisticated and far reaching in their requirements that companies such as EMKA now provide a wealth of stainless steel components from hinges and handles to specialist locking systems. Materials vary from AISI 303 to AISI 316 and include fabricated as well as fully machined items with sealing up to IP66.

Window and Door Units

EMKA Window and Door Units are custom made and available with a wide variety of options. Available with or without frame, completely assembled or as a kit for self-assembly. 

Commercial Vehicle Accessories

The EMKA Commercial Vehicle Accessory programme covers items such as emergency hammers, door handles, luggage compartment handles, locks, latches, storage nets, cupholders, air vents, strikes, toggles and similar items. This builds on our extensive program of moulded sealing profiles and custom formed gasket rings and frames with vulcanised corners – which have met a significant need within the commercial vehicle industry.


EMKA miscellaneous products include drawing pockets, handles, keys, cover stays and door stops, fixing materials and other items of interest to designers and manufacturers of all types of enclosures.

Whitepapers from EMKA

EMKA has published whitepapers on subjects including: data centre security, biometric physical access control, extrusion processes and terminology, sealing profiles, locking technology, swinghandles, compression latches, 1/4 turn locks.
