Keep an Eye on Electric Strikes

Most our electric locks are installed by a specialist locksmith and we’ve had some issues with reliability through poor positioning of the devices. What can we look for during commissioning to ensure we see trouble before it strikes?

When you’re putting in door hardware ensure that strike plates have a slight forward and back play when the mortise is held in the strike. This ensures that an overload of the coils won’t result from lock friction.

It’s also vital that lock and striking plate are compatible and there must be proper mortise penetration. Also be sure that electric strike plates are heavy duty with continuous operation-rated coils.

Installers of access control systems may not be responsible for emergency evacuation procedures of a facility but it’s important that emergency exit facilities are included as part of any access control solution. Taking this into account make sure you set your electric locking devices to fail open in the event of power loss.
