Small electric strike suits retrofits
The AES-300 electric strike from Alarm Controls has a small body design which eliminates the need to cut out the dustbox, saving time and eliminating a majority of potential mistakes during installation. Its small size means it fits neatly into any size cutout, making it suitable for retrofit in medium duty applications.
