An electric strike lock is a device fitted to the frame of the door and works in conjunction with a mechanical dead latch. The strike will secure the latch in place until such time as an access control device is operated, releasing the strike plate to allow for entry or exit through the door. You might choose an electric strike over a maglock for aesthetic reasons, but you might also choose one if you would rather have the versatility of a locking device that can be power to open or power to lock. Some electric strikes offer both options where its often a simple case of moving a screw in the body of the strike to change the operation. We offer a range of electric strike locks including rim, surface and mortice versions and power to lock and power to open options.
