Hidden and protected
Capitol Industries’ new Magnetic M-1000 and M-7000 hide and protect lock cylinders and latches behind a corrosion-resistant sliding plate made of anodized aluminum. The cylinder shield protects the lock against vandalism, bumping, picking, drilling, contamination, unauthorized key use, as well as extreme weather. The products can be keyed alike or differently with over 10,000 combinations and the possibility of on-site key duplication, with proper tools and a key code. Regular magnets will not open the device. The M-Series products use rare earth magnets with a lifetime of over 80 years. Equipped with a patented, fully mechanical system, there is no need for wiring or batteries. To hide and protect the cylinder, simply slide the outer plate up. To unlock and reveal the cylinder, place the magnetic key in the key slot and slide the cover down. The devices may also lock in the open position and require the magnetic key to close. Ideal applications include storefronts, remote facilities, after-hours lockout, basic access control, maintenance rooms, construction sites and harsh environments.
Style and security
The Rite Touch RT1050D offers sophisticated styling, convenience, flexible access control, safety and security for single or double glass doors. Suitable for indoor applications with no modification necessary to the glass, the easy-to-install, surface-mounted Rite Touch combines elegant aesthetics with the latest touchscreen technology. Contractors can distinguish an opening by harmonizing style and security with the Rite Touch.
Matches any interior
Dorma Americas has introduced its innovative new MUTO manual sliding door system. MUTO makes installation hassle-free with its compact, modular profile and easy integration of complementary functional elements. It offers a variety of features to provide convenience in everyday use. With aluminum finishes including clear anodized, similar to satin stainless steel anodized, and powder coat options, MUTO can be matched to virtually any architectural interior. The MUTO line includes the MUTO Basic and MUTO Comfort systems. Both offer technical features and aesthetic qualities that make them suitable for a wide variety of applications. System features include a self-closing door with no need for a power supply; a Dormotion damping device to decelerate door panels as they approach the open or closed positions, taking them to a gentle stop; the option of integrating a status indicator to enable monitoring of the door from anywhere within the building; a standard wall and ceiling mounting and installation in suspended ceilings; an elegant body with sharp edges and a small recess for the logo clip. The MUTO system accommodates variable weight tolerances and movement patterns ranging from small single panels of 110 pounds or bi-parting panels up to 330 lbs per panel (or as high as 440 lb in MUTO Basic) while being capable of synchronized movement. Tempered laminated safety glass is used with availability of special interlayers for advanced function and customized glass design. MUTO uses a simple, two-step door panel height adjustment. MUTO Comfort comes standard with roller carriers for glass and, with the appropriate adapters, can also carry wood door panels. In the MUTO Basic system, the roller carriers directly attach to wood door panels, while adapters allow the use of glass panels.
