Three things not to miss when selecting an electric strike

Electric strikes can be installed in a wide range of swinging door applications. Consider these factors to help determine the right electric strike for your project.

1. Assess the type of frame and health of the opening
  1. MATERIAL:  Is your door Hollow Metal, Aluminum or Wood?
  2. TYPE:  Is your door hollow or concrete-filled?
  3. HEALTH: Can frame or door irregularities be fixed prior to installation of electric strike?
2. Determine if door assembly has special requirements

 Fire-rated Assembly (NFPA80 Fire Doors)

 Windstorm Resistant (tested to sustain winds up to 150 mph)

 Outdoor Rated (UL 1034)

 Preload Capable 

3. Identify and test existing door hardware
  • Existing locking hardware determines the compatible electric strike and overall function of the opening
  • Make sure existing hardware works properly and is not broken or damaged
