Hi, guys. My name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our products review videos. Now I'm putting these short little video together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in perhaps in a bit more detail.
So today I want to show you an electric strike. It is an incredibly popular electric strike, for a few reasons. A) it's a cost effective strike release, and also it has an incredibly strong holding force as well. It's actually able to hold 1750 kilos of holding force, so significantly strong in that respect.
One of the other advantages with this particular strike as well is it is also 12 and 24 volt related. So you can use 12 and 24 volt DC on it. Also on the back here as well, if I was to rotate this round here, you also have the ability here as well to make it "fail safe" or "fail secure". The difference between "fail secure" and "fail safe" is if it is a fire door or an emergency escape door, or something like that, it needs to fail safe when there is a power failure then you need to alter this. In which case then, it's always when there is power applied will it then lock. In which case, if there is no power, it would fail safe, in which case this would open.
As you can see, this at the moment is on the fail secure. Which means that that is actually secured there like that. So that's the basic principle of this particular strike.
Now the faceplate that you see here is designed to go on a wooden door, but it also comes as well with another plate that's designed to go on an aluminium door as well. That is pretty standard size for an aluminium door as well. I will get some measures on that a little bit later.
It also has the ANSI interface here that allows you to add additional plates on here if you have quite a wide door jaw. This allows you then to build up the plates to make it a really nice and a tidy install in respects to that.
It also has four hour fire rating, which is quite thumbs up to be honest with you. Fair dues, this GK310, the manufacturer really thought about this to make it quite a universal product. It sells and it's bucket load and we know it's quite a very popular product in respect to that.
Now it also comes in two different versions: monitored and unmonitored. To give you guys a little bit of an idea, we have the instructions here that has some wires and so forth. If I was to open that up there, you can see there, basically, by all means, pause the video. If I can hold that still enough, pause the video and then you can see the wiring diagrams of how to get it to work on 12 and 24 volts. You can also see on the top, if you have the monitored versions, where you get the "normally opened" or "normally closed" common rails you would expect to see. That the wiring diagram there.
Let's get some quick little measurements for you. Also, just before I digress, it comes with a fixing kit as well to allow you to fix it to either the wooden door or an aluminium door. These are the actual fixing plates and screw fixes all situated inside here ready to go. So that's the fixing pouch there.
So let's get some quick look measurements for you. Also before I digress, it comes with a fixing kit as well to allow you to fix it to either the wooden door or an aluminium door. And these are the actual fixing plates and the screw fixings are all situated inside here and ready to go. So that's the fixing part.
So let's get some quick little measurements for you. If you are thinking that you need to replace a strike, maybe this will give you the information that you need. So the overall length there is about 201 mm. The fixing centres, which is quite an important measurement, if you are thinking you want to replace there. I'm getting value of around about 186 mm. Okay. So that's the fixing centres there.
The actual width of this here, is 36 mm, quite wide. That's its measurement there. The actual size of the opening is 35 mm. The depth there is around about 18 mm. The depth of the jaw is, I'm going to be talking there, right around about 13 mm. That's how deep that jaw is there.
The overall depth of the strike itself overall is about 31 mm there. The size of the plate on the back, that there is 85 mm. There are indicating marks there. You have the measurements on the side here to tell you how it all works. On the back then, I don't know if you could actually zoom in close enough there, but it gives you the model number and so forth on the back, if you're thinking that's what you think you need.
Now on this particular plate that comes, which obviously can be screwed off there and pop that plate in its place, the overall length here very, very quickly is about 123 mm. It's fixing centres there is 105 mm. The width of that there also is about 32 mm.
There you go. It's quite a popular product on our website. The GK310 is a universal strike release. 12/24 volt, fail lock, fail unlocked. It basically does everything you need in one package. But if you need a bit more info on this, or any of our products that we have pop us over an email, use the live chat, or simply do it the old-fashion way and give us a call on the phone. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers.
So from me Darrel and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and we'll catch you real soon. Bye, bye now.
