EML Series electromagnetic locks, with field selectable dual voltage (12 VDC or 24 VDC), provide positive, fail-safe operation without moving parts to bind or wear. EMSL-2000 Series has a patented Micro Shear design with high tensile strength that combines aesthetics, high security and performance. EMDE-1000 Series is a technologically advanced, UL listed, self-contained system that meets NFPA Life Safety Code 101 and Special Locking Arrangements. The product line also includes electric strikes, power supplies and accessories such as key switches, push switches, control consoles and programmable digital keypads.

Low Energy Operators

Using microprocessor technology, the ADA-compliant DORMA ED800 provides accessibility for individuals with physical challenges. This low energy operator meets ANSI A156.19 requirements and provides sufficient strength to keep doors closed, while providing easy and unencumbered access. The DORMA ED900 is an advanced low energy swing door power operator. It incorporates an innovative electromechanical drive and a state-of-the-art microprocessor motion control system that makes the operator exceptionally quiet, safe, and easy to use.
