Trimec’s ES9000 electric strike endures


Trimec®, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY, has successfully tested its ES9000 Pre-Load Electric Strike under rigorous fire safety conditions.

The ES9000 Electric Strike, designed for use in high-security commercial applications, was included by Trimec® in a 44mm door set tested to BS EN1634-1:2008 at Warrington Fire, the doorset was successful and achieved the required 30 minutes.

With a holding force of 1300kg, the ES9000 is particularly suitable for use in high-traffic areas, as found in many commercial applications. The weather-proof electric strike will serve for all access-control systems, using both open-in and open-out doors, and will open under a 25kg side load, Trimec®’s market-leading feature.

Already tested to over two million cycles, the achievements in the fire test are further testament to the ES9000’s durability and strength. The Trimec® product portfolio can now offer fabricators and installers peace of mind, plus tangible proof of its suitability for a variety of applications. 

Andy Stolworthy, Product Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said:

“The positive results were expected, as the ES9000 has been designed to withstand the most testing commercial environments, but we are pleased that Trimec® can now offer customers an electric strike that has endured a complete and comprehensive range of tests.

“Thanks to product development and testing, our electric strikes can be used in a variety of applications and situations, helping fabricators and installers to win work on a wide range of project specifications. Standards and legislation are playing an increasingly important role in the industry, and we recognise that in meeting those standards, and keeping our customers informed, we help them maintain a respected reputation, as well as their high standards. “

Trimec® is committed to evolving the design and features of all its products, and hopes to deliver regular improvements.”

The CE-marked ES9000 is suitable for use with 15mm latch with 3mm door gap, in an operational temperature of between -20 to +60C. Where Power to Lock and Power to Open functions may be required in the same building, the electric strike is interchangeable from either fail safe or fail secure from the rear of the strike. Trimec®’s ES9000 is supplied with a five-year Tricare® warranty.
