ASSA ABLOY has released the HES 9800/Adams Rite 7800 Series is a low-profile, surface mounted electric strike designed specifically to work with the Adams Rite 8800 and 8700 Series narrow stile rim exit devices and the EX88 interlocking rim exit device.
As the only electric strike compatible with the Adams Rite Starwheel and interlocking latching mechanism, the new HES 9800/Adams Rite 7800 electrifies openings on aluminium storefronts, commercial perimeter doors and high-occupancy commercial facilities, and provides an electrification option for the Adams Rite EX88.
“As one product offered by both legacy brands, the HES 9800/Adams Rite 7800 electric strike extends ASSA ABLOY’s commitment to provide more electric strike solutions for more applications,” says Matt Branson, product manager, ASSA ABLOY Electronic Security Hardware.
“Customers loyal to either HES or Adams Rite can use the HES 9800 or Adams Rite 7800 as a cost-effective way to upgrade an opening from mechanical to electrical. With no need for door modification, a dedicated power supply or wire transfers, there is less labor time spent installing the hardware.”
The HES 9800/Adams Rite 7800 exceeds Grade 1 standards for strength and performance. All functions are performed within the ½-inch thick strike body, which is protected by a sleek stainless-steel cover to conceal the mounting screws and provide the most aesthetic appearance. The HES 9800/Adams Rite 7800 is dual voltage, field selectable for fail secure or fail-safe operation, and comes with 1/16th of an inch and 1/8th of an inch spacers to accommodate varying door gaps.
