EXPERTS IN ELECTRIC LOCKING
The electric lock is the cornerstone of any system that aims to provide electrically controlled access to a room. The simplest parlophone application as well as the most complex security and access control systems always rely on the electrical unlocking of a door.
Do you want to equip a door with an electric lock? Allocking can help you to define the best solution in function of the requirements, standards and door materials. Some typical considerations are:
- Shall we install the lock (mortise lock) or apply it under construction?
- We work with quiescent current (Fail Safe) or work current (Fail Secure).
- Does the electric lock act as an escape door lock and does it have to meet the European standard EN179 or EN1125?
- What is the desired security level (burglary resistance)?
When necessary, we are happy to come to you to evaluate the situation correctly. Once we have agreed on the ideal solution, our technicians ensure an efficient installation of your electric lock.
REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR ELECTRIC LOCKS
Do you have doors that are already equipped with electric strikes, electromechanical latches, solenoid locks, motor locks, pin locks or door magnets? Do you need an urgent repair? Or are you looking for a partner who can take care of the maintenance of all your locks?
Then you are at the right place at Allocking. Our maintenance and repair service is always ready to guarantee trouble-free operation of your electric locks.
TYPES OF ELECTRIC LOCKS
Electric door openers
Electric door openers are built into the door jamb and release the latch of the lock under electrical impulse, so that the door can be pushed open. These strike plates locks are the simplest type of electric locks.
Electromechanical drop bolt locks
Electromechanical drop bolt locks are frequently used in heavier security applications. The lock is automatically ejected when the door is closed and blocked by a built-in electromagnet.
Solenoid locks are often used for one-sided access control. They have an electric handle control on the outside of the door and a mechanical handle control on the inside so that free exit is always possible in case of emergency.
Motorized locks are ideal for doors with a safety function as they lock and unlock both the latch and deadbolt electrically. Usually, like solenoid locks on the inside of the door, they are operated with a crank as a panic function.
Dead bolt locks
Electric dead bolt locks do not have strong burglar-resistant properties, but are frequently used as a low-budget secondary lock for electric access control. They are fairly compact and can be easily built into door leaves or mounted as a surface lock.
Door magnets (or magnetic locks) keep a door closed by magnetic force. The magnet is connected to power supply and energized so that it attracts a counter plate and locks the door.
