Electromagnetic locks designed for high-security applications
Continental Access is a vendor of electromagnetic locking products that are manufactured with holding forces from 600 to 1200 lbs. The locks, used in correctional facilities, government institutions, airports, schools and office buildings, offer end-users high-security fail-safe design, the company says. Users can achieve NFPA/BOCA compliancy by adding push bars and exit buttons to the electromagnetic locks. The locking systems are also self-contained microprocessor controlled, providing delayed egress or access control functions, and can be installed on single or double doors with keypads and touch entry devices. They come with a five-year limited warranty and are fully concealable. The vendor’s mag locks come in field-selectable models and use low voltage (12 or 24VDC). For double doors, the vendor offers two sides of 1200 lb. locking force. The company’s remote release magnet (RR-PM1200) for buzz-in applications provides 1200 lbs. field selectable holding force. It comes with a 12 VDC power supply, magnet, remote release fob, plug-in AC transformer and supports up to 100 individual remote fobs.
