For many years Abloy Security has been providing installers, specifiers and suppliers with a comprehensive range of high security solutions. Now, the company has extended its range of security products to include its new multi-function electric DIN locks, which provide optimum levels of security and safety while enabling stockists to reduce the cost and complexity of stocking multiple lockcase types, ultimately offering the potential to increase levels of customer service. As well as reducing the time required for both specification and installation, the range offers, among other benefits, the potential to reduce stockholding significantly throughout the delivery chain by up to 90%.
Designed for the simplest specification and installation possible, the multi-function properties of the range cater for all possibilities in a single lockcase. The locks are non-handed, 12-24V, fail locked or unlocked, with all of these options being easily field selectable during installation. In addition, the locks are available with a choice of motor or solenoid operation, can be fitted to all types of timber and metal doors, and be used to retrofit their equivalent lockcase within the previous series.
Having recognised that standards and guidelines are a key deciding factor when specifying electric locks, not only to ensure compliance but also to offer complete peace of mind, ABLOY has developed the range to comply with the latest EN standards. These include EN179 and EN1125 for emergency and panic exit doors and EN1634-1 for fire resistance. Additionally, the locks are CE marked and have been fully tested to the impending standards for burglary, prEN1627, and mechanical resistance, prEN12209-1.
Alongside these Abloy will be exhibiting automatic swing door operators, offering solutions for standard, lightweight and heavy duty fire doors. With the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 coming into force in October 2004 the majority of public and commercial buildings need to provide easy access and egress as a legal requirement. When installed in conjunction with ABLOY motor locks or selected solenoid locks, our automatic swing door operators provide effective, hands-free access control without compromising on security.
In addition, on display will be the first double action electric lock to meet the demanding prEN 13637 European Building Hardware standard. The Eff Eff 351 lock releases instantly and is ideal for use on swing doors and fire routes. The specification will satisfy both building control and fire safety officers as it will operate under extreme side pressure up to 5000N in the event of an emergency, but is also pressure resistant to intrusion ensuring security.
To complement the range will be a selection of mechanical products including door cylinders, padlocks and mortice locks, plus the range of Eff Eff electro-magnets and electric strikes.
