Considerations Regarding Electric Strikes

An electric strike is designed to release the door locking mechanism when access is granted or when the power goes out. Fail-safe strikes will allow the door to automatically open during an outage. Fail-secure strikes keep the door closed when the power goes out. The fail-safe system is ideal ensuring that occupants can immediately egress and not get trapped inside. Fail-secure doors protect restricted areas from unwanted entry. It is critically important that you choose the right mechanism for the particular door that you are securing.

Electric strike units can be configured to work with virtually any access system including keypads, buzzers, thumb scanners or other biometric or RFID products. It is important to note that a strike is just part of an integrated system that enhances access and egress. A door lock and strike must be compatible in order for the system to function properly as well.

Proper installation of a door strike involves making permanent modifications to the door frame and jamb in most cases. Careful planning is required to ensure that a particular strike is compatible with the entire door prior to installation. It is also crucial to install the appropriate door strike plate as well.
