The Australian Trellis Door Co (ATDC) has introduced an electromagnetic locking facility for its stackable commercial doors for emergency egress in the event of fire.
In this application the electromagnetic lock will be wired to the fire alarm to the premises.A fire event will then activate the fire alarm which automatically cuts the power supply to the electromagnetic lock thereby automatically unlocking and opening the door.
In a different application the same locking mechanism can also be used as an electronic lock for greater security access control in high security applications such as for banks or jewellery stores. Access can then be controlled for example by restricted swipe cards or even digital keypads..
Whilst ATDC will, where required, build these special locking mechanisms into their doors the actual wiring and access control is always arranged by other access control specialists.
