Hi, guys. My name is Darrel. I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. The product that we have here at this moment in time is the Adams Rite Solenoid Bolt. That's available on our site in the access control section. This is the actual product here.
Adams Rite is a manufacturer predominantly an American manufacturer and came over into the UK market a good few years ago now producing locks and locking solutions for aluminum doors. They have since been bought out over the UK division or the European division has been bought out by Assa Abloy. I'm not sure about the US division at all. But this is their version of the solenoid bolt and if I was to have a look at there a little bit more, I can turn it around for you to give you some sort of idea.
So it's designed that if you wanted to replace this, this is what you would expect to see inside. And so if the bolt that you have is worn or broken and you need to replace it, then you see then that that's the actual face and that's what you're going to see on the inside. Now one thing with Adams Rite as well is that the face plate is quite wide. This here is touching nearly 34mm across which is quite wide for the UK face plate. Normally we run about an inch, 25mm so you might be mindful of that if you're thinking of fitting one of these. Of course this can fit into the frame or it can fit into the door. Either way it doesn't really matter, you can make a decision as to what way you want this to fit.
Now the standard black and red wires is your power to the actual solenoid bolt, so when you apply power to it assuming that this little magnetic sensor in the keep can sit there and the lock can see this, then you know that the bolt after a predetermined time which can be set. There's a little setting on the side here that allows you to alter that from no delay to two and a half to five second delay. So if you got a door that's like on a door closing and when it closes, bounces a little bit before it actually stops and settles, then it's best to put the timing up to a couple of seconds because once the door is settled and it then sees that it's the sensor there, a couple of seconds there and then it froze the bolt over. So that's what the time delay is in respect to that.
It also has a contact for lock staters. It tells you whether or not the lock is locked or unlocked and the wires for that is blue. I'm just looking here on my chart here, blue, white and yellow. So blue, white and yellow, those three there is a set of contacts that will change state when the lock is either locked or unlocked. Those three there will be normally open or normally close in the column. So that gives you lock staters.
Then the final three then which would be green, orange and gray, that tells you whether or not the actual door is actually in the frame, the door is closed into frame because it's using the magnet that's in there to sense whether or not the door is sitting correct. Because it could be that the bolt could be chucked out but the actual door might be actually open. Well that there is another set of contacts that you could pop through to your access control to say whether or not the door is actually in the frame correctly.
The actual face plate here, this is the keep. It's designed to go either, like I said either in the frame. You can fit this into a wooden door. There's no reason why you can't or you can fit it into an aluminum door, again there's no reason why you can't. This then would sit in there like that. You'd screw that into the back there and that would sit in there like that. Okay, and that's then would be your face plate there if you want to fit that way like that.
Now it does also come with an additional face plate and this is the face plate here. You don't have to use it but look at the quality of that, it's refined. It's good engineering as with all Adams Rite locks, if I have to be honest. And that will allow you to sit that over there if you're wanting to and that would sit over there like that guys, and that's a really, really nice and petite finish.
Now it comes standard with some fixings as well. There's a myriad of different types of fixings in there. I'm not going to go through all of those options but it comes with its own fixings to go into an aluminum door quite easily or you can put it straight into a wooden door if you want to. All right, so there's not much more I can say about it to be honest to you.
If there's something that haven't mentioned or you think, "Oh, I'd like to know that." Pop us over an email, use our live chat that we have on our website, or you can pick up the phone and have a chat with me or any of the guys in the sale team. We're all conversant with this particular type of lock and can give you any advice that you want.
One thing I will mention though however is the depth there. If you are thinking of actually fitting this, from experience when I used to be on the tools, you need to dig deep here guys. If this is going in the frame, you need to dig deep and if it's going into the doors as well, the cut out there is quite substantial and that is over 40mm there. So if you're thinking of popping this into the frame and shooting the bolt into the door, then you need to know that you're going to be cutting in a hole that's at least 40mm there.
So there you go. I hope that's given you enough information for you to make an informed decision as to whether or not this particular product is suitable for your application. But if not, like I said, give us a shout. We'd love to hear from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer. So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the team, take care. Thanks. Bye-bye.
