I need a digital lock to use on the rear entrance to my building, problem is there's lots of vandalism at night and I need it to be secure.
March 9, 2010 by EditorOur heaviest duty, most robust digital lock is the Lockey L1150 which has a lever handle with a safety clutch mechanism designed to protect it from excessive force or vandalism.
March 14, 2010 by helen(from Dale) Q: I'm looking for a high security emergency exit pad/bar that I can fit to a heavy duty exterior gate. Do you have a latch product that would be suitable? (from Doorstuff) A: You might consider the 700 series for heavy duty/ high security emergency exits. See page 11 of the 16 page pdf on our website, link here, and the 700 series technical pdf from the manufacturer's site, link here. (reply from Dale) Q: From what I can see the 700 seems to be a two point system and I can only fit a single point system as it will be fitted to an exterior gate and there would be no facility for the vertical bolts, is there another single point pad/bar would you recommend for exterior use? (reply from Doorstuff) A: The only ones I am aware of are the Locinox, not supplied by us, but you can see them on another website, link here.
I currently have a Geze TS1500 door closer on my balcony door, but it does not hold the door open (i.e., door slams shut). I'm confused as to which additional or replacement part I need to keep the door open.
March 15, 2010 by EditorThe hold open arm can be subsituted for the standard arm, and can be purchased on our web page, link here.
Is the Projeto 150 sliding door gear available as a ceiling mounted system? We are looking for a system that slides a single leaf 1500w x 2735h x 60 thick door.
March 20, 2010 by EditorCeiling mounting brackets can be supplied (although these are not the recommended brackets included in the kits). The door size is unlikely to be a problem, as the Projeto can take up to 150kg per door.
I am looking to replace a digilock on a panic bar door. However I am interested in one that I am able to deadlock at night once everyone is out of the building. Is there such a thing?
March 22, 2010 by EditorYou can use the CL1 outside access device mechanical keypad outside (compatible with an Exidor push pad or push bar inside). This cannot be deadlocked, but it may be possible to add an additional separate deadlock to the door, but you would need to pass this with your local fire officer who will decide based on the usage of the building/door.
I need a door arrestor/closer for a UPVC porch and door that opens outward and is hinged on the right side. The main objective is to prevent the door being caught by the wind and opening rapidly, resulting in the outside handle banging, (and breaking), into the window next to the door. Here are some photos of the door.
March 23, 2010 by EditorI think you need a back check door closer, EITHER: the TS2000 BC or the TS4000 (which has back check as a standard feature) fitted in the Fig 61 position - closer body on the frame with the arm on the door, OR: the TS3000 BC guide rail door closer fitted in the Fig 66 position - closer body on the door with the opposite hinge side guide rail on the frame. Guide rail door closers will not permit the door to open more than 120 degrees and the force of the wind will apply extra forces to the door and frame. A mounting plate is definitely recommended for any door closer fitted, and be sure to bolt through the frame as well.
