Electric Strikes: Elevating Access Control Systems

Are you concerned about the security level of your door? Electrified door hardware will increase the level of security for your door. At Park Avenue Locks, we are pleased to introduce you to the HES Electric Strikes, as well as popular electric strikes from Adams Rite and Cal-Royal.

An electric strike is a lock mechanism used in applications together with an access control system. The reason why we favor HES electric strikes over standard strikes is that they have greater access control -they can be unlocked remotely, or through a card (will require a card reader) or key code, making it more convenient than a standard strike. Also, electric strikes are more fail-safe, being mechanically operated. In situations of a power outage, it is still possible to exit with an electric strike, as opposed to a magnetic lock (and electric door) that becomes inactive when an electric current is lost.

What is an electric strike release?

With a magnetic lock, the door is always locked from both sides of the opening. Electric strike door lock and electric lock set provide security only for the exterior side of the door. When a door electric strike is activated, it releases the latch, unlocking the door from the door frame. When the door closes behind you, it automatically returns to a locked position. Electric strike locks are opened from the inside by pressing a panic bar or other manual release device.
