New EMKA Compression Latch Offers Visual Security

This new vibration proof compression latch from EMKA UK with visual indication of open/closed status is ideal for use in railway and road transport applications, as well as for cabinet installations.

Coventry, United Kingdom, January 18, 2013 --( The new Program 1000-U846 compression latch from EMKA benefits from their work in the railway industry where visual indication of open/closed status is a major requirement. It also means that users elsewhere, e.g. in road transport or multi-suite cabinet installations, can make use of this high performance compression latch with clear visual status indicator. This is achieved by simply revealing a high visibility red band when the insert extends from the housing as it is opened. Compression of 6mm not only enhances gasket sealing but also adds vibration proofing. Its railway heritage also includes a “high speed” dust cap which maintains IP65 sealing and remains in place even at 450km/h – cleverly and importantly the cap will not close if the latch is open – so maintaining visual safety indication.
