Security Electromagnetic Locks

Article Summary: 

Building owners and property managers often consider installing electromagnetic locks (maglocks) on doors at ground and parking levels to enhance building security. Maglocks consist of an electromagnet attached to the door frame and an armature plate on the door, locking the door when energized. Fire alarm pull stations are installed nearby, releasing the maglocks in case of emergency. For buildings over 6 storeys, maglocks are required on stairwell doors for bi-directional egress during emergencies. Emergency lighting and exit pictograms are also essential for safety compliance. Contact us for assistance in assessing and implementing appropriate security and life safety systems in your building.
