ABLOY launches access control lock

October 2002 Access Control & Identity Management

ABLOY recently launched its new generation ABLOY EL414 solenoid access control lock for narrow stile doors such as aluminium and other framed glass doors. The lock is well suitable for the South African market including external and internal doors of business premises as well as exterior doors of flats, residences and hotels.

The lock is available in 25, 30 or 35 mm backset, with a lock depth as little as 39,5 mm. The lock is always automatically deadlocked when door is closed, and importantly, the lock is deadlocked only when door is closed (ie, it cannot be triggered to not close). The double action bolt is made of steel and has a 14 mm throw deadlocking. The EL414 is available with a symmetrical trigger bolt and so can be used on swing-through doors.

This compact product has a built in microswitch to monitor whether the bolt of the lock is in the locked or unlocked position. The EL414 is available for either 12 or 24 V d.c. operation and also both in fail locked and fail unlocked versions. The mechanical override facility is compatible with any europrofile cylinder although ABLOY suggest using an ABLOY Disklock Pro cylinder for total security.

Michael Gordon, managing director of local ABLOY representatives Lockwise, adds: "The EL414 has been an instant hit since its launch a few months ago. The lock offers so much more than your average electric strike or magnet and really gives end users complete peace of mind from both a security and access control point of view."
