Rutherford Controls Int'l Corp, March 2012 - Security Industry Association (SIA) recognizes the F2164 Electric Strike as the best in the Locks/Safes/Hardware category at the 2012 ISC West Tradeshow in Las Vegas.   As many as 70 products and services were entered into 21 categories at this year's New Product Showcase.  Judges for the NPS are all highly skilled and experienced in security technology design and application. They also possess a minimum of 10 Years experience in the selection, purchase and/or installation of products within the category that they are judging.

RCI continues to set the standard for design innovation, with the launch of the NEW F2164 Fire-rated Electric Strike for locks with offset, or centerline latch entry. With the F2 strike, one product can accommodate virtually every type of lockset on the market!

"The judges were very impressed with the capabilities of the F2 and how it effectively addressed the needs of Installers as well as the Distributors by eliminating the guess work involved in the selection process for offset latch entry applications," said National Sales Manager and Presenter, Jeff Stoner of RCI.

Choosing an electric strike can be very challenging with the wide variety of locks available with different latch locations. Not anymore… the F2's patent pending "Saw-tooth Adjustment Locator" design allows the installer to slide the deadbolt keeper and deadlatch ramp vertically to choose the precise position for the lock. There's no need to determine which lock is being used, or order special faceplates. Everything you need is in the box. Distributors and Installers can carry fewer SKU's - because the F2164 does it all. It even accommodates a 1" deadbolt for night-latch function!

This unique, "all-in-one", fire-rated electric strike combines strength; 1500 lbs holding force, endurance; 1.5 million cycles, and convenience; everything you need is in the box, even the Hex and security driver bit!

Installation doesn't get any easier. The unique patent pending "Sliding Shim" design moves vertically on the keeper to align with any latch location, allowing up to 1/8" horizontal adjust­ment on warped or misaligned doors. We've also included a faceplate for centerline latch entry, a trim plate for messy frame cuts, a "hands-free" adhesive template - and the driver bit you need to install the strike.

Other Standard features of the New F2 Strike include; field selectable voltage, (12 or 24VAC/DC), low current draw (only .19 Amps @ 24VDC), plug-in wire connectors and anti-tamper pry-guard. It's non-handed and the "Cool Keeper" solenoid design means the strike doesn't heat up!

If latch monitoring is an afterthought, the optional patent pending "plug-in" Latch Monitor Switch can be purchased separately. No need to replace the strike… just plug in the F2LM!

The F2164 is UL Listed - 1034 Burglary Resistant and UL Listed - 10C (3-hour) Fire Rated, (fail locked only). This strike delivers on strength, versatility, durability and design innovation.
