New high strength ASSA 900 Series Electric Strikes available now
ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, has unveiled its new, high strength ASSA 900 Series Electric Strikes.
The new range is designed and tested to be compatible with ASSA's Modular and Connect lockcases, delivering a high strength, high performance combination for doors that undergo extreme usage, or are situated in high security areas.
The ASSA 900 Series is offered in two ranges. The high strength 900 to 920 variants can withstand heavy day-to-day demands, capable of providing a holding force of up to 1000kg/10kN. The highest strength 960 and 961 variants offer extreme levels of holding force, of up to 1500kg/15kN - greater than the weight of a family hatchback.
Suitable for access control locking on aluminium, steel or wooden doors, the ASSA 900 Series is offered with dual voltage, supporting 12-24V AC/DC. All faceplates are available in a stainless steel finish and are compatible across the whole range. The result is a more flexible and straight-forward solution, reducing the amount of parts ASSA Vantage Partners need to stock and specify.
CE Marked with a five-year guarantee, the ASSA 900 Series meets BS EN 14846, the new standard for electro-mechanically operated locks and striking plates. Fire rated models are also available, providing assured protection in the event of a fire.
All 900 Series Electric Strikes are reversible and unhanded, with the same mortice dimensions for easy installation. This flexibility means door preparation does not need to be changed and strikes can be easily changed, if door usage changes.
Nojmol Islam, Category Product Manager for Electro-mechanical and New Technologies at ASSA ABLOY, commented: "High strength and unique compatibility with our high performance ASSA Modular and Connect lockcases is the main advantage to this new range. The built-in pre-load technology enables doors to operate even with pressures exerted by door seals, air flow and misaligned doors.
"These benefits - backed by a five-year guarantee, the latest certification, reliability and flexibility around installation - offer unrivalled performance and guaranteed peace of mind for end users.
"For the ultimate combination, the ASSA 900 Series Electric Strikes should be combined with our ASSA Modular or Connect lockcases; the strongest pairing on the market today."
