STEP 281 - Fail safe hookbolt strike


For use where the electronic access control system must work together with a high security Connect hookbolt rather than the traditional latchbolt. The rapid operation of an electric strike, as compared to a motor lock, is recommended for high-traffic areas such as corridor doors and main entrances. These strikes are also recommended for rooms containing cash or valuables and areas where staff may be subject to attack.


All Hookbolt Strikes are supplied fitted with either faceplate 183 or 283, or 184 or 284, and with 5 m cable.

The strike is manufactured from stainless steel.

VERY HIGH strength - resists 1,500kg sidepressure on the pivoting staple.

Door handing must be specified when ordering.

The strike is closed as long as the current is on and opens automatically when the current is switched off.

Two microswitches monitor the hookbolt engagement and the deadlocking of the pivoting staple.

Will open even when a sidepressure up to 500kg is applied.

Features receiver in faceplate for conventional latchbolt.

Handing must be specified when ordering. Use references:
