Striking New Adams Rite 7400M


Adams Rite has launched a new slim fit, monitored electric strike that delivers significant benefits for commercial applications.

The 7400M supersedes previous models by offering double monitoring of both the solenoid and latch as standard, keeping things simple for installers and end users and offering better value for money.  This monitoring functionality allows a facilities manager to track which doors are locked and which are unlocked.

This new product has a holding force of 1080kg and will open under a side load pressure of up to 15kg. Pressure often builds up due to poorly fitted hardware, door misalignment or the effects of air-conditioning and can be enough to stop many common electric strikes from operating.

Andy Stolworthy, Product Manager for Adams Rite, commented:

“The 7400M is a feature rich product that has been tested to 500,000 cycles.  It can also be set to either fail safe or fail secure via selection on the strike body.

“Operating with the same innovative split jaw design as the non-monitored 7400, the 7400M is also dual voltage AC/DC using either 12 or 24V, providing high levels of versatility and security for end users.”

Adams Rite is the leading supplier of aluminium door locking, electric locking and escape devices, supplying the top OEM door manufacturers worldwide. The company is part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions.
