Locking solutions guide for commercial vehicles 16 April 2021

For design and production engineers working in the commercial vehicle industry, EMKA has released updated guidance for locking solutions used in this sector.

The guide offers guidance to this comprehensive product range of locking solutions for commercial vehicles, characterised by modular design, versatility and high-quality. The range includes locking solutions for utility vehicles such as trucks, busses, mobile homes or trailers ​​ in compliance with the​ special ​requirements​ and standards of ​the​ sector. ​For example, DIN EN 61373 vibration-proof designed locks, undetachable foamed seals, in various materials and surface finishes, are available as standard products. They are supported by an experienced custom design/engineering team of great value since application specific designs are a common requirement for commercial vehicles.

EMKA has built its product portfolio around items such as the ePush lock (invisibly installed to open/close by simple push on the panel), an innovative compression latch with status indicator flap, 90° 3D hinges or specialised 180° gear hinges, gasketing for fire protection and special products like an eCam electromechanical latch and a new emergency hammer.
