Electric Strike Locks – Installation & Repair in the Winnipeg Area
Using a standard lockset, you can add an electric strike to the door frame to unlock the door any time as needed. Here at Redecopp Security in Winnipeg, we install and repair electric strikes throughout Manitoba.
Electric strikes are useful for access control systems that use cards, fobs or codes, as the door can automatically re-lock after being opened. We also offer rim electric strikes for doors that open with a panic bar.
Fail-Safe Vs. Fail-Secure Locks
Electric strikes can be either fail-secure, fail-safe or reversible. A fail-secure lock is opened by applying electrical current to the lock, meaning that it will remain locked in the case of a power outage. A fail-safe lock, on the other hand, locks when electrical current is applied, meaning that it remains unlocked in the case of a power outage. Reversible locks can, as the name indicates, be switched between the two.
