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