Fire Exit Doors: Code Compliance Made Easy

Posted by Security Door Controls on March 1, 2024 at 10:00 AM

Solenoid Controlled Mortise Locksets

Ensure the safety of your building occupants with fire exit doors that comply with code regulations. Discover how solenoid controlled mortise locksets can enhance security while meeting the necessary requirements.

Understanding Fire Door Code Compliance

Understanding the requirements for fire exit doors is crucial for maintaining a compliant and secure environment. One of the key aspects of fire door code compliance is the installation of proper hardware, including solenoid controlled mortise locksets. These locksets are specifically designed for fire exit doors, offering enhanced security while still meeting the necessary regulations. Installing solenoid controlled mortise locksets and maintaining fire exit doors in good working condition are essential steps towards achieving code compliance and creating a secure environment.

Exploring Solenoid Controlled Mortise Locksets

Solenoid controlled mortise locksets are a popular choice for fire exit doors due to their enhanced security features and ability to meet code regulations. These locksets use an electric current to control the locking and unlocking mechanism of the door and provide controlled access to the building. This enhances the security of the building while still allowing for quick and easy egress in case of an emergency.

Moreover, solenoid controlled mortise locksets are designed to meet the necessary fire door code requirements which ensures that the locksets contribute to the overall fire safety of the building. These locksets provide a reliable and efficient solution for controlling access and maintaining the safety of your building occupants.

SDC's UniFLEX™ Electric Strikes

Posted by Security Door Controls on May 26, 2022 at 3:00 PM

SDC's UniFLEX™ electric strike products feature an interchangeable faceplate design.

Why should you care? The interchangeable faceplate design allows for these strikes to meet a variety of applications. Simply change the faceplate to meet your specific needs!

SDC's 55 series and 45 series electric strikes are available in a variety of configurations to accommodate several types of mechanical locksets and door and frame styles - as well as failsafe and failsecure applications.

SDC’s 55 series 3/4” latchbolt electric strikes are heavy duty. They are designed for installation in hollow metal frames for access control of cylindrical locksets, mortise locksets with or without deadbolts and mortise exit devices. 55 series strikes accept 3/4” throw latchbolts and up to 1” throw deadbolts. The choice of six application faceplates eliminates the need for centerline relocation, making them ideal for new or retrofit, high security access control applications.

SDC’s 45 series 5/8” latchbolt electric strikes are centerline latch entry strikes designed for use with cylindrical locksets and mortise locksets without deadbolt for both metal and wood frames. 45 series strikes accept 5/8” throw latchbolts or up to ¾” throw latchbolts with 1/8” door gap. Centerline latch entry strikes require the latch to enter at the strike “centerline” located exactly between the top and bottom of the strike faceplate.

As an additional benefit, we have created all-in-one part numbers that come with the electric strike and three faceplates for the most common applications.
