ASSA ABLOY's EcoFlex Energy-Saving Mortise Locks Now Available with High-Security Monitoring Options
ASSA ABLOY's EcoFlex electrified mortise lock platform from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT is now available with several high-security monitoring options and deadbolt functionality.
The EcoFlex mortise lock platform is now available with internal end-of-line resistors for comprehensive monitoring of the circuit between the access control panel and lock.
End-of-line resistors are commonly improperly installed at the access control panel or above the door, leaving the wiring to the lock vulnerable to undetected tampering or damage. In addition, the labor to add end-of-line resistors at the site increases installation costs and jeopardizes quality by relying on manual installation.
Integrating the end-of-line resistors into the lock not only eliminates the risk of undetected tampering, but reduces installation costs, simplifies specification, and offers the assurance of a factory installed and tested product.
EcoFlex electrified mortise locks are also now available with a deadbolt privacy function that disables remote access control unlocking (such as a keypad) or scheduled unlock when the deadbolt is engaged. This option is ideal for personal privacy areas such as nursing rooms, on-call doctors' rooms, and restrooms.
With these newly available monitoring options, facilities can now easily apply request-to-exit, door position sensing, and deadbolt monitoring to an electrified mortise lock opening with a single SKU.
"Our new EcoFlex high-security lock option sets a new standard for comprehensive monitoring," said Peter Boriskin, Director of Product Management – EAC, ASSA ABLOY Americas. "It offers heightened security along with improved quality. Because a single lock body can be used for a variety of applications, EcoFlex simplifies ordering and installation and reduces labor cost."
EcoFlex electrified mortise locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands CORBIN RUSSWIN and SARGENT represent a significant innovation in door opening technology. EcoFlex electrified mortise locks reduce energy consumption up to 96% compared to standard electrified mortise locks, as certified by GreenCircle. EcoFlex offers a flexible, reliable solution with a single ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 mortise lock that can be used for 12V - 24V applications and can be easily field-configured for fail-safe or fail-secure operation.
