Online PR News – 31-March-2020 – Coventry, West Midlands – Market leaders EMKA are delighted to announce that their compression latch technology continues to be applied to standard products, so increasing the performance available for standard applications in arduous environments – e.g. to IP69 where needed. EMKA compression latches enhance sealing and enclosure performance parameters such as security of door closure, greater envelope rigidity, more even gasket pull-down, as well as an improved user experience.

Compression latches are available ex-stock for external installations such as railways, street furniture, oil and gas facilities, specialist vehicles – e.g. motor homes, mobile caravans, static caravans, also for HVAC. They are becoming increasingly in demand for ordinary commercial/industrial situations where complete certainty of performance is required, e.g. in areas subject to wash-down or where a lock-and-forget operation is needed.

Materials include zinc-die, stainless steel and polyamide in “quarter-turn” style - 90°+90° operation (90° to close, 90° to compress), as well as swinghandle designs where operation of the lever handle creates the compression action.
