EMKA Locking Hinge Solution for HVAC Sector
The new locking hinge by EMKA prevents leakages on doors and valves of air- conditioning systems. Furthermore, during maintenance tasks, the hinge can be operated easily and safely: By using a height-adjustable hinge bracket, it also makes a precisely adjustable gasket compression possible and provides standard safety functions that are optimized through intelligent engineering solutions.
The height-adjustable hinge bracket permits individually precise adjustments of the gasket compression. When opening the lock, the pressure is released in two steps. This offers an additional safety feature for the user: Firstly, the door is caught by an integrated, patented impact guard so that the pressure can escape from the vent ducts safely. Subsequently, the door is unlocked enabling access to the unit. Secondly, the door is closed in only one step, another distinctive feature for convenient handling by EMKA.
The new locking hinge provides the option to open the door of the air-conditioning unit either to the right or left. This design offers more flexibility to the user and makes the installation independent from the building’s design. Furthermore, the new hinge makes it possible to remove the door completely. This option is a very important function during maintenance tasks when, for instance, a filter must be replaced.
This locking hinge made by EMKA is already used in many air-conditioning units of numerous renowned manufacturers. Nevertheless, EMKA continuously develops new solutions in this area.
