What a Fantastic Idea! The Electric Locking Spindle
Wow, what a fantastic new product this is. At last, an ideal solution that will allow you to control access whilst at the same time maintaining your existing latches and door furniture.
The all-new electric spindle allows an access control solution to be implemented into your existing handles and locks by changing simply the existing spindle with this new electric version.
The principles of operation is that from the inside you will always be able to press the handle down and get out in the normal way. However, from outside pressing the handle down will not engage the latch unless the electric spindle has had a voltage applied to it. The voltage which can be 6-12 V A/C or DC when connected engages the small gearbox which in turn activates the outside lever for the duration that the power is applied to the spindle. This means, that if you use a key part, proximity control, biometrics or any other form of access control solution you are now able to restrict access quickly, easily and effectively.
The installation is relatively simple. You need to take off your existing handles and with a hole cutter and the guide that is supplied with the spindle you would drill an oversized hole in the substrate to accept the small gearbox that is on the end of the spindle. You will also need to drill a hole through your door to the hinge side to accept the power source for the spindle - you'll need a good lengthy drill bit for this. (Subject to site survey for exact citing of wires). When the cable exits the door on the hinge side you can use a door loop to bring the power to the frame and then to your access control solution.
The electric spindle has been tested for many thousands of operations. Therefore, you can feel assured that the product is fully tested and will provide years of trouble-free service.
The electric spindleis primarily designed for handles that get pushed down and not up like that in UPVC doors. Therefore, it is only recommended that the spindle is used for wooden doors and traditional style latches that are found in standard doors. It is not recommended that the spindles be used for UPVC lift locking handle applications.
