Abloy UK launches new solenoid locks for all kinds of door Abloy UK, the UK’s leading security and access control company, has launched a new range of push/pull function solenoid lock cases for a range of doors. The Scandinavian EL402 and EL502 lock cases have been designed for use in places with medium levels of traffic and no seal force or fire requirements – making them ideal for many businesses, public buildings, schools, universities and apartment blocks. The EL402 replaces the existing EL412 and EL413 as the ideal lock for slim-line doors. The adjustable backset gives the mechanism more versatility than ever before. The EL402 and its counterpart for wooden and metal door frames, the EL502, benefit from a wide operating voltage and a choice of fail lock or fail unlock to maintain safety or security in the building during a power cut. The EL404 has all the features and benefits of the EL402 but is compatible with euro profile cylinders. Tabitha Morton, Commercial Director of Abloy UK, believes the new locks will give a much better level of choice for specifiers looking to provide security for more bespoke doors: “The new electric lock cases give much more choice when you’re looking at fitting access control on many slimmer doorsets or wooden or metal doors,” said Tabitha. “We’ve designed the locks to be non-handed, this along with their other flexible features makes them ideal for use in a wide range of places and we’re confident that they’ll prove to be even more popular than the previous range from Abloy.” For more information visit www.abloy.co.uk.
