Electric door strikes have revolutionised the way that doors are kept locked. They use a strong electric current to keep the latch in place, which can only be broken by using the fob or being ‘buzzed in’ by someone else.
Electric door strikes utilize larger, more secure locking mechanisms, making it more difficult to break in, while also providing more convenience with easy fob access. They can also be controlled remotely using smart technology. Electric strikes are excellent both as a stand-alone security solution, and integrated with access control systems.
Choosing The Right Electric Strike Lock
There are two main types of electric strike:
Fail safe electric strikes – Require power to lock the door, and unlock when power goes out. These electric strikes are usually preferable in life emergency situations, such as on fire doors or stairwell doors.
Fail secure electric strikes – Requires power to unlock the door, and remains locked when power goes out. Usually used for high security situations.
