Electromagnets
Back to Access
home page

 
An electromagnet is just that, an electric magnet.
Mounting the magnet on the door frame and the strike on the door,
then applying  power to the magnet, creates a strong magnetic field
which holds the door shut.
When power is removed, the magnet will "let go" of the strike,
allowing the door to open.

Since losing power will allow the door to release,
Don't forget to look at our section for battery back-up

Magnets are available in 12 or 24 volt DC
Holding strengths are from 300 to 2100 pounds
Mounting accessories are available for narrow frames,
glass mount kits, wood and concrete mounts,
dress covers and full width and height housings
