Electric Door Strikes and Operators


Electric strike door locks allow or deny entry based on ID cards, fingerprint scans, or PIN code authentication and are, therefore, popular among facilities where security is of utmost importance. Get the Best information about درب برقی.

Maglocks and electric strikes work by emitting electromagnetic fields which attract a magnetic plate affixed to the door through a magnetic “armature”. They typically rely on the current flowing through an electromagnet inside their locks for power.


Electric door strikes provide an additional layer of security for doors using mechanical locks. Connected directly to the lock, this device only activates when receiving the appropriate signal from a pin lock or card reader. When this occurs, it opens the latch bolt, allowing access to rooms or facilities.

Electric strikes come in various varieties, each offering unique advantages. When choosing between them, you must take into account your desired level of security, any building code requirements, and potential egress and safety concerns.

Choose a strike type to complement the door and frame material, such as metal for metal frames and wood for wood. Also, consider thickness; some strikes are designed for thin doors while others cater to thicker ones.

The final step in selecting the appropriate strike system is choosing between a fail-secure or fail-locked strike. A fail-secure strike remains locked upon a power outage, making it ideal for areas such as stairwells where people shouldn’t become trapped. On the other hand, fail-safe strikes allow people to exit quickly in case of emergencies; this option makes more sense in areas where sensitive equipment or information is stored.

An electric strike can be used alone or combined with other products to form a comprehensive access control system. A maglock may be attached to an electric strike for increased security and convenience. A keypad can also be installed so users can enter by entering the correct code or PIN number. An electric strike can even be configured to open automatically when fire alarms are activated, giving credentialed users direct entry into their offices and other areas within your facility—potentially helping reduce theft and vandalism risks in sensitive spaces.

Exit Devices

Panic devices (also referred to as crash bars or push bars) are commercial door hardware designed to provide quick access in emergency situations. Commonly found in offices or retail stores, panic devices allow people to quickly gain entry during emergencies by pressing their horizontal bar across the door, which disengages its latch bolt and allows it to open more rapidly.

Lifesaving devices, these bars are much more than mere metal bars; they’re required by code at specific openings depending on a room’s occupancy type and load, so selecting one appropriate to your business is critical to remaining compliant with the law.

These devices must be installed correctly and paired with an electric operator to prevent the doors from slamming shut or remaining locked after someone exits a building. Furthermore, they can be connected with access control systems and activated via keypads or card readers for added security and convenience.

SDC offers an assortment of solutions designed to meet the requirements of your specific application, from rim mounts, surface vertical rods, and concealed vertical rod devices, electrified options, as well as options designed to comply with ADA compliance and meet fire, life safety, and egress standards.

Electrical options for rim mount or mortise devices consist of motors that automatically retract latch bolts when an electric signal from, for instance, credential readers or intercom systems at entranceways is received. The EL option is typically used on non-fireproof doors, while LR applications tend to use fireproof door frames.

Fire-rated applications often require a fail-safe trim device that emits a loud 95-decibel alarm when an emergency exit push bar is depressed, such as during an evacuation. We provide this option along with wide stile panic devices for maximum door and building security during a fire or other emergency—an especially good choice for use on stairwell doors in multiple commercial settings.


Electric door operators make opening and closing security doors simpler. These devices work like a catcher’s mitt, holding onto the latch bolt of metal security door locks until they receive an electrical signal from an access control system. Swinging and sliding door operators come equipped with various options, including wave-to-open switches, motion sensor actuators, and regenerative power operators.

Full-power operators tend to be used in high-traffic areas such as grocery store entrances or department store entries. They require safety sensors attached or near the door that monitor movement and stop it if someone comes close. Many are programmable to meet specific opening needs.

Low-energy operators offer an economical alternative. They are designed for retrofitting existing openings that need to meet ADA compliance. Installation requires either meeting one of two standards: UL 10C for strength testing or NFPA 252, which mandates safety rails on swinging models.

Low-power and full-power operators differ primarily by the force required to open them. Full-power operators are usually limited in both speed and force required to prevent anyone attempting to open the door manually from being crushed.

Another significant distinction lies in how they’re activated; full-power operators can be activated with a push plate wall switch, while low-energy ones are triggered by simply pushing or pulling on the door. There are ADA standards regarding where push plate wall switches should be placed to allow wheelchair users access without moving away from their device at a height that accommodates people with mobility issues as well.


Electric doors help manage the flow of people through any given space, including commercial and residential settings like office buildings, retail stores, hospitals, schools, and airports. Not only are electric doors used to increase security in such settings, but they can also save energy by keeping the air cooler in summer months and warmer in winter, which is perfect for helping keep temperatures balanced between seasons! When used alongside credentialed access, critical fob readers or wave-to-open sensors allow touch-free entry for elderly and disabled customers who require special assistance to gain entry.

Installing an electric door requires attention to every detail. First, the track system needs to be cleaned of dirt or debris that could prevent the door from moving unevenly. Next, the motor, controller, tailwheel, and transformer components need to be mounted onto the track and connected according to manufacturer instructions.

An integral component of an electric door system is a magnetic lock, commonly referred to as a maglock. These locks use magnets to keep doors locked securely when electricity passes through them; you can trigger their release using a keypad, key fob, or another method—perfect for interior doors with low-security requirements.

An electric strike can be configured as fail-safe or fail-secure. In either instance, it will remain locked even without power, while fail-secure voltage is required to stay locked and will only unlock via mechanical key override.
