Introduction to Magnetic door holders
Magnetic door holders are door locking devices used to control access to sensitive areas of a building. They are often used in environments such as hospitals, banks, shopping centres and government buildings to ensure personal security. They are a reliable and practical alternative, as they allow controlled and standardised access in the event of an emergency, while offering a high level of security. In this article, we take a closer look at their benefits and how they can help protect access to premises.
The different types of Magnetic door holders
There are different types of Magnetic door holders, depending on how they are installed and how they are used. They can be installed on single or double doors, in wood or metal. They can also be accompanied by different unlocking options, such as push buttons, remote controls, keypads or badge readers. Depending on the specific needs of the company or establishment, it is important to choose the most suitable type of door holders. Depending on the level of security required, the brackets are equipped with one to four suction pads, giving them a resistance of 300 to 1,600 kg, depending on the model.
The benefits of a Magnetic door holder locking system
- Safety: Suction pads provide a high level of safety by effectively locking doors, preventing unauthorised access and protecting people (NFS 61-937).
- Convenience: They allow doors to be opened and closed easily, improving the flow and fluidity of people’s movements.
- Ease of installation: They are easy to install, making them an ideal solution for both existing buildings and new constructions.
- Flexibility: They can be used with a wide variety of doors, including fire doors, glass doors, timber doors, metal doors, etc.
To sum up, a good magnetic door holder should be reliable, secure and resistant to vandalism. It must also comply with fire safety standards and be capable of providing sufficient holding force to secure the premises. Finally, it must be easy to use and maintain, to minimise maintenance costs and ensure optimum security.
