A component of many access control systems, an electric door strike is a device that replaces the standard strike plate (where the latch from the lock goes into) and locks or unlocks the door. But, unlike a standard strike plate, an electric strike can move out of the way upon command allowing the user to open and close the door without having to use a mechanical key. After the door is open and the person moves through the door, the electric strike will automatically re-lock, given a current or having the current removed, depending on the type of strike. It’s a very effective part of any security system.
Like magnetic locks, electric door strikes are either fail-secure or fail-safe, meaning they either unlock during a power outage or stay locked. However, recent developments in security systems are allowing the production of electric strikes to be both fail-secure and fail-safe, making them the perfect access control system for a multitude of applications. If the electric door strike uses an A/C current, you will hear a buzzing noise when the door is opened. If you're using a D/C current, a buzzer accessory can be added if this is something you would prefer to have installed.
There are many residential and commercial settings an electric door strike may be used, including pool gates, electric gates, locations where security cameras are in use in place of a typical latch, and other places where there’s an existing access control system. There are four types of locks associated with electric strikes available, including dead latch, mortise, cylindrical, and rim panic exit devices. Most commonly, you can find electric strikes in the places like jails, office buildings, malls, schools, or anywhere else traffic is moderate to heavy. Having an electric strike as part of your security system allows the control of access to certain areas of a building and can be a great addition to those looking to add a magnetic locking system.
