This is the right electric lock for a heavy door or gate

One of the typical uses of electric locks is closing main entrance doors. The problem is that a main entrance door can also be very heavy, especially if it is a large wooden door.

The right lock for a more secure gate

The gate is normally the first visible access from the outside of a property. That’s why, mostly, we focus on its appearance, sometimes to the detriment of security and practicality.

Are the electric locks on doors and gates all the same?

In today’s blog we would like to respond to the numerous requests from individuals, condominium administrators, but also companies, who write to us asking which is the most suitable electric lock for an installation on very heavy doors or iron gates.
