Camden’s New 1289L RIM Strike Features Latch Monitoring, Universal Design
Camden Door Controls says the design of the UL rated and fire safety compliant CX-EPD1289L RIM strikes enables them to operate with up to 15 pounds of preload pressure.
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, Canada — Camden Door Controls has introduced what it says is the first surface mount RIM strike with preload. This CX-EPD1289L grade 1 surface mount RIM strike with latch monitoring also offers a “universal” strike design that delivers high levels application flexibility.
According to the company, the number one reason that RIM strikes fail to operate is pressure on the keepers of the strike, which is known as preload. Camden Door Controls explains that preload can be caused by differences in air pressure on each side of the door, as well as a misaligned door, or simply someone pushing on the door before the strike is unlocked.
“Camden is very proud to bring this innovative CX-EPD-1289L surface mount preload RIM strike to market,” says David Price, vice president communications and business development, Camden Door Controls. “Unlike other strikes on the market, if someone leans against the door to apply pressure to the keepers of the strike and then activates a request-to-exit switch to unlock the door, the strike binds and will not unlock. But, Camden’s CX-EPD1289L RIM strikes are designed to operate where other strikes fail, setting them apart in the marketplace and ensuring safe and reliable operation.”
Camden Door Controls boasts the patented design of these new UL rated and fire safety compliant CX-EPD1289L RIM strikes enables them to operate with up to 15 pounds of preload pressure. These capabilities are said to eliminate the need for future service calls for doors that go out of alignment after the strike is installed.
Moreover, because Camden offers one universal RIM strike that includes both security and fire ratings, field configured latch monitoring, selectable fail safe, fail secure operation, and dual voltage, there’s no need to stock a range of RIM strike models the company points out.
Additionally, Camden notes, a metal mounting jig is included in the packaging, making installation fast and easy. And, like all Camden strikes, the 1289L RIM strike is backed by a five year no-hassle product warranty.
