The EMKA range of stainless steel quarter-turn catches now includes their new Program 1000 System incorporating a sealed cover. This is especially valuable for railway applications or other situations where a floor mounted latch is required and there is a need to exclude the infiltration of dirt and moisture into the latch mechanism.

The threaded cover may be used with a number of 1000 program latches which offer square, slotted, triangular, hexagon and proprietary railway key inserts. The quarter-turn latch is first installed onto the floor mounted cover plate or access panel, with the “O” ring sealed cover then fitted over it for protection and a neat flush appearance which presents a safe footing for pedestrians.
