ASSA Electric Strikes now compatible with bestselling lockcase


The popular range of Universal electric strikes from ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY, are now fully compatible with its most popular lockcase.

Suitable for use on entrance and final exit doors, the unmonitored 70 and 71, and the monitored 570 and 571 electric strikes, are ideal for a variety of applications from healthcare facilities to commercial spaces, and can now be used with ASSA’s bestselling ASSA Modular 1520 escape sash lock, as well as all ASSA Modular lockcases.

Available in 12v or 24v, AC or DC variants, the 70 and 570 ASSA electric strikes are both fail locked versions suited to high security projects, where product or property needs to be secure and access restricted in the event of a power cut or emergency, whereas the 71 and 571 are failed unlocked making them ideal for high traffic areas.

All four electric strikes are now compatible with the ASSA Modular 1520 escape sash lock from ASSA, its bestselling lockcase. The escape sash lock, with deadlocking latchbolt and deadbolt, features a long throw, which previously has not been accommodated by universal electric strikes, but the redesigned range is now fully compatible with this popular lockcase.

Nojmol Islam, Technical Manager for ASSA, said:

“Following the launch of our Euro Profile electric strikes, we were keen to consolidate our strike offering. The development of the 70, 71, 570 and 571 universal electric strikes to accommodate one of our most popular pieces of escape hardware makes our range far more comprehensive.

“This latest range of products is very much in line with ASSA’s role as a total specification security provider, offering a tailored solution for a broad spectrum of applications.”

ASSA’s universal electric strikes can be used on fire-rated doors when specified with the correct faceplate and mechanical lock. Highly resistant against impact and vibration and designed to withstand 7,000N, the electric strikes are designed for maximum flexibility.
