EMKA: Retractable Handle Delivers Pleasant Haptics with a Modular Design

January 19, 2022

The new retractable enclosure handle from EMKA has a modular design, enabling customers to choose between several locking devices and locking media. Offering hook, turn or height-adjustable conical roller cam up to round cylinder, square or double-bit operation, the entire EMKA range of locking devices is available to the user. This variety makes the handle unique in market comparison. In addition, the hinged handle has IP65 protection and an optical opening indicator.

Retractable handles have long been standard and proven in the field of transport locks for flaps and doors. Especially on the American market, they achieve high sales figures, as they are often installed in pickup trucks or vans, e.g. in storage compartments and boxes. While handles have been distinguished over decades mainly by their flush-fitting functionality, the challenge in 2020 is to get a grip, literally, on function, design, and flexibility as a combination. With the new retractable handle in a user-friendly T-shape made of plastic and zinc die-cast components, EMKA has succeeded in this breakthrough.

Compared to the old model which has been an integral part of the EMKA portfolio for many ­years, the new version impresses with its modern appearance in hybrid material mix with components made of zinc die-cast and plastic. The ­T-grip recess is much wider and therefore comfortable to use even for people with larger hands and when wearing gloves.
