BEA’s new Delayed Egress Maglock offers a code compliant, all-in-one locking system for single outward swinging perimeter doors. The electromagnetic lock provides security for applications requiring loss prevention, life safety and traffic control.

The Delayed Egress Maglock’s built-in sensor detects when pressure is applied to a door, featuring up to 1200 lbs of holding force. The system will sound an alarm and unlock after a predetermined period of pressure on the door, with a short nuisance delay to eliminate accidental triggering.

The cost-effective sensor is easy to install and field selectable to meet a variety of building codes. It includes a key switch for reset and override, and an external sounder alarm. The system uses dry contact relay switching for local and/ or remote alarm monitoring. A built-in security condition sensor and highly visible red/ green light panel indicates when the door is unlocked or closed and bonded.
