Electric strikes can be installed in a wide range of swinging door applications. Consider these factors to help determine the right electric strike for your project.
1. Assess the type of frame and health of the opening
a. Material: hollow metal, aluminum or wood? *Adams Rite offers electric strikes for aluminum, hollow metal or wood doors. Please see the Adams Rite catalog to order the compatible model for your door application.
b. Type: hollow or concrete-filled? Concrete-filled may require additional tools. Consider using no-cut electric strikes.
c. Health of door and frame: can frame or door irregularities be fixed prior to electric strike installation?
2. Determine if door assembly has special requirements
• Fire-rated Assembly (NFPA 80 Fire Doors)
• Windstorm Resistant (tested to sustain winds up to 150 mph)
• Outdoor Rated (UL 1034) • Preload Capable
3. Identify and test existing door hardware
• Existing locking hardware determines the compatible electric strike and overall function of the opening
