Electromagnetic Locks

A magnetic door lock is a popular choice due to its simple design and ease of installation. Electromagnetic locks usually do not contain a complex locking mechanism that can fail or become compromised. They can be fitted with entry interfaces such as keypads, card readers, biometric scanners or remote access control systems.

Browse through the catalog in order to discover the wide selection of electromagnetic locks and components that we carry. You will be hard pressed not to find a durable and reliable magnetic door lock system to accommodate almost every access control requirement. Outdoor, indoor, commercial and residential units are available, and you can choose between units that provide anywhere from 200-4000lbs of holding force.

  11. Schlage GF3000-MBS Mortise Mounted Shear Electromagnetic Lock w/ Magnetic Bond Sensor

    Schlage GF3000-MBS Mortise Mounted Shear Electromagnetic Lock w/ Magnetic Bond Sensor

    The GF3000-MBS Shear Lock features a patented design offering advances over any Shear Lock on the market. Unique mounting features provide a “floating” action of both the lock assembly and the armature. This design allows the magnet assembly to move towards the armature during the locking process. In this manner, the GF3000 is able to overcome gaps of up to 1/4 inch without current inrush. Once engaged, the Shear Lock provides 3000 pounds holding force, without high operating temperatures normally associated with other Shear Locks. A microprocessor-based control module provides advanced electronic features. This circuitry automatically senses and adjusts input voltage, allowing for operation from 12 to 24 volt DC power sources. The mortise Shear Lock offers the advantage of a totally concealed locking mechanism, providing superior security and appearance. The patented design incorporates locking “tabs” on the magnet assembly with mating grooves in the armature plate. While the strength afforded by this design is a major advantage, the flexible mounting features are as important. This design allows for normal door and frame movement. Learn More

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Electromagnetic Locks

Ease of installation, maintenance, repair and greater security round out the top benefits of a magnetic door lock. They are very difficult to disable and compromise, and users can select the best access control interface based on their needs and requirements. Most use these locking systems to provide remote access in low to medium security environments. However, there are very strong and durable magnetic latch systems that can be installed in highly secure areas as well.

There are some magnetic latch devices that include a piston or deadbolt for enhanced security, but the majority of products use magnetized plates to lock doors. Every magnetic door lock system is designed to withstand a certain amount of push or pull force before the magnetic seal will break. A lock that is certified with a holding force of 4000lbs will probably secure the vast majority of doors from almost any intrusion. Combine that with clamping jaw features, and these doors can be virtually impenetrable.

However, the fact remains that maglocks can be forced open after the appropriate amount of pressure is applied if they do not include a reinforcing deadbolt or piston. Electromagnetic locks also require a continual electrical current to generate the magnetic forces that create the seal. Power failures can render these locks useless unless they are fitted with a battery or some other back-up power source.
