Securitron's Magnalock

The Electromagnetic Lock System That Will Outlast Your Building

Magnalock Overview

Magnalocks are designed to secure any type of door or gate that closes against a fixed stop. The product consists of an electromagnet which mounts on the fixed frame and a strike plate which mounts on the moving door or gate. The strike plate is delivered with fasteners that permit it to flex so that when the door closes, it automatically self aligns with the magnet. Magnetic force then takes over, strongly securing the door. Release is achieved by switching off power to the magnet.

Choose The Industry Leader

Securitron has been making electromagnetic locks since 1971 and has stayed at the forefront thanks to a continuing program of engineering improvements. In security industry trade journals, both installing dealers as well as end users have consistently chosen the Magnalock as the most highly preferred product.

We attribute this not only to the product's features but to its proven performance in demanding applications world-wide.

Choose From A Complete Family

The Model 62 series offers high security (1200 lbs.) With this strength, entry typically connot be forced without the aid of special tools or before the door or frame gives way. It's recommended not only for any high security opening but also for outdoor use on all types of gates.

The Model 32 series offers a "traffic control" level of security (600 lbs.) similar to electric strikes and is recommended for applications where a physical assault on the door is not expected. In these applications, the Model 32 brings the advantages of lower cost and more compact size. Finally a wide range of options allows you to select the proper unit to meet electronic and physical mounting considerations.

Electromagnetic Locks

High Technology Means Performance In Your Application

Creating the world's best elctromagnetic lock calls for serious engineering. During its 20 years of continued development, the Magnalock family has incorporated an array of advanced features (both physical and electronic) that have made it what it is today. Along the way, it has earned two separate U.S. patents and an impressive list of cerifications.

Physical Construction And Mounting

A lock should be tough. The Magnalock comes in a stainless steel case and all ferrous metal surfaces are plated to military specifications. A 10ft. integral cable makes wiring easy and the Magnalock is at home indoors or out. Mounting is via hardened machine screws into self collapsing blind nuts (four screws with the Model 62; two with the Model 32). Mounting screw holes are closed off with tamper caps. Sheet metal screws (which can work free) are not used. Even the strike sex bolt is massive (1-1/4" diameter head).

Electronic Performance

First, Magnalocks are remarkably efficient in power use. The 62 series operates on only 3 watts (250 mA at 12 VDC or 125mA at 24 VDC). The 32 series uses 3-1/2 watts (300 MA at 12 VDC or 150 mA at 24 VDC). This benefit is especially important when large numbers of Magnalocks are operated from a central power supply connected to the fire alrm system. Magnalock efficiency generates large cost savings in wire gauge, powere supply and battery backup costs. Second, internal electronics eliminate problems often found in other designs. We reverse out residual magnetism and accelerate field collapse so that Magnalocks release instantly and fully.

Inductive kickback and EMI are suppressed so there's no arcing over control switches or interference with nearby electronic devices. Ferrous metal aging which could lead to stickiness over time is blocked. We've been awarded a U.S. patent on Magnalock internal electronics.
