Electric strikes are the most common and easiest to install, however, there are different types of electrified door hardware. Obviously, each one has a purpose and helps achieve the security level required.
For example, a maglock is the best option to secure a door from both sides – entry and exit. In addition to this, there is specialty electrified door hardware for securing gates, cages, and cabinets.
People must always be able to freely exit a building. This is the most important rule when your securing a door. In particular, be sure to check the local building codes and life safety plan.
