What you see on the door frame is referred to as an electric strike. These are the items that allow someone inside to “buzz” someone in. As in this case in Montclair, on an attorney’s office, they are frequently put in incorrectly. They choose the wrong kind for the lock. They choose the wrong voltage, and so on. We replaced the existing strike
with a Rutherford controls 7114.
Stairwells that go to roofs on apartment buildings cannot be locked, but management does not want anyone on the roof.
This building in central Montclair had such a door. We installed a Detex ECL-230D, an emergency release deadbolt with alarm if opened without the authorized key. Satisfying safety and security.
The wind had broken the doors, and the bottom of the doors was buried in the flat roofing material and could not be disturbed.
We took the doors down and rehung them with Pemco continuous hinges, cut short so as to not disturb the roof. And then we repaired the Jackson door closers.
A large day care on Eagle Rock Avenue in Roseland NJ needed their entry system replaced. As you see from the picture, outside they have gone through equipment over the years. We integrated their existing system with an Linear/ IEI 212 keypad, the one pictured in the middle. The keypad was for staff and parents. We installed the Von Duprin power supply, for the electrified panic bar, and the keypad, inside. The release button, was positioned near their existing video intercom.
