EMKA is announcing four new stainless steel hinge types as described in their ECHO catalogue supplement for 2013. The 1056 in AISI 316 is a 180 degree screw-on hinge for stand-alone control, electrical, electronic or telecoms cabinets – intended for use in harsh and adverse environments such as offshore or in heavy washdown areas in food processing or chemical/pharmaceutical production areas. Coupled with stainless steel fabricated housings, the 1056 provides a rugged option for lay on doors.
The companion 1110 180 degree hinge in AISI 316 is a pin-retained design also for lay on doors where it fits an edge cutout. The pin is concealed for security but quickly extracted for easy door removal.
Internally mounted stainless steel hinging is provided by the 1031, where two types are available in AISI 304 suited to lay on door types. The 1031-U14 is a 115 degree hinge for 26mm door returns and offers two integral pins with a quick withdrawal mechanism. It sister version – the 1031-U15 – is a 135degree hinge for 24mm door returns featuring a single retained pin. Both types are screw fixed to the enclosure frame with welded-on door components.
