Like a fixed strike, an electric strike normally presents a ramped surface to the locking latch allowing the door to close and latch just like a fixed strike would. An electric strike lock has the additional ability to release the door on command when a signal is received from the Access Control System. The electric strike can be configured as ‘fail safe’ or ‘fail secure’ depending on what is required in the event of lock failure.
