EMKA are aware that the generic problem with many doors and access panels is often that they have a large surface area – easily caught by wind and able to generate a lot of force. This makes maintenance or installation/updates a difficult problem and potentially a painful one. Similar problems exist where a door/panel is opened against gravity or perhaps is in a position where passers-by may knock it closed.
In these situations, EMKA offer a program of cover stays and door stops in a variety of configurations including manually operated locking or self-operating as the panel is opened/closed. A simple stay may be a folding type or a sliding type door stop with a moving prop. Otherwise, telescopic types offer a longer mechanical prop and so spread the loads involved over a wider range. Button release or push-click operation is available.
