Rutherford Controls Int'l Corp, April 2011 - Rutherford Controls continues to enhance its Electric Strike offering by introducing its New 5 Series "Easy Mount" - No Cut Strike, for cylindrical locks with a 1/2" latch projection.

Designed to fit easily into a standard ANSI frame prep, the 5 Series boasts NO frame cutting required. Simply remove the standard mechanical strike plate, and replace it with the new "Easy Mount" Electric Strike.

With the smallest strike body in the industry, simply drill a wire access hole - and no additional modifications to the dust box are required.

"Our engineering team has worked diligently to produce the shallowest, shortest, and thinnest strike body, of any "No-Cut" Strike in the industry. The small size ensures the 5 Series will fit easily into an ANSI prep, which ultimately leads to a faster, more economical installation, "Factors that both the Installer and the End-user will appreciate" says Bob Lafrance, VP of Sales & Marketing.

While the 5 series has vertical adjustability of up to 5/16", optimal performance with a "No-Cut", concealed strike, can only be realized when the door is properly aligned. "The RCI 6 Series Electric Strikes is what we recommend if less than optimum conditions exist", states Bob Lafrance.

Standard features of the New 5 Series include; Field Selectable Mode, (fail locked/unlocked), field selectable voltage, (12 or 24VDC and 12 to 24 VAC), plug in wire connectors for fast and easy installation, (also includes mounting tabs and tamper resistant screws for added security). A latch monitoring version of the 5 Series Strike will also be available in the near future.

UL Listed to 1500 lb static strength, the strike has also been factory tested to meet the BHMA Grade 1 strength and endurance criteria, along with a brushed stainless steel finish, "Easy Mount" delivers on strength, durability and architectural design.

Known today as RCI, Rutherford Controls Int'l Corp., is a global solution-based organization that provides the architectural hardware, locksmith, security and OEM markets with the best in electric locking and access control solutions. In or Out…We Make it Easy!
