Rod control system is smoother and quicker

Rod control system is smoother and quicker Rod locking systems are vital to users of large specialist cabinets and their development tends to occur in evolutionary steps - so it is great news that EMKA has brought so many new features together in its recent launch, making installation and operation both smoother and quicker.

The system comprises a complete rod locking solution based around the stylish new 1325 Swinghandle paired with the 1121 precision rod control module which provides stabilised rack and pinion activation for smooth precise feel and longevity. These are mated to industry standard 14x3mm flat rods by simple clip-in mechanism - they are also then located by clip-in rod guides and are installed with clip-fix roller end shoe for positive gasket pull down.

The move to high grade engineering plastics has reduced the energy of production and recycling while conveying benefits in accuracy of fit, quietness and ease of installation - also reducing cost but retaining similar strength characteristics to metal mechanisms.

By introducing the new 1325 swinghandle along with the control rod package, EMKA has brought through the option for on-site retrofit of round key cylinders, standard inserts and profile half cylinders.

In the rod activator itself EMKA have cleverly blended compatible materials to best effect; using long strand glass reinforced polyamide for strength, coupled with a mix of Grilon with PA6 for the rack plus Grivory for the gear wheel, they have achieved very low friction with exceptional wear characteristics. These flat rod multi-point locking systems offer a number of advantages for larger cabinets enhanced by these EMKA clip-in guides.
