Introduction to magnetic handles

Magnetic handles are a type of locking mechanism used to control access to restricted areas within a building. They are often used in environments such as hospitals, banks, shopping centres, and government buildings in order to keep people safe. Magnetic handles are a reliable and practical solution. They provide effective access control that’s safe in an emergency, while also offering a higher level of security. In this article, we will look more closely at their advantages and how they can help to keep buildings safe and secure.

The different types of magnetic handles

There are a range of different types of magnetic handles. They vary according to the type of installation and the method of usage. Magnetic handles can be installed on single or double doors made of wood or metal. They can also come with different options for unlocking, such as push buttons, remote controls, keypads, or card readers.

It’s important to choose the right type of magnetic handle for each project, according to the needs of the business or premises. Depending on the level of security required, the handles are equipped with holding force from 300kg to 1200kg, across one, two, or three maglocks.

The advantages of a magnetic handle system

  • Security. Magnetic handles ensure a high level of security by keeping doors robustly locked, protecting people, and only allowing access by authorised individuals.
  • Comfort. They allow easy opening and closing of doors, improving mobility and the flows of foot traffic around a building.
  • Ease of installation. The handles are easy to install, making them an ideal installation for retrofitting on existing doors as well as new builds.
  • Flexibility. They can be used on a wide variety of doors, including fire doors, and doors made of glass, metal, and wood.

In summary, the right magnetic handle should be reliable, secure, and robustly protected from vandalism. It should also meet fire regulations where required and provide sufficient holding force to keep the site secure. Finally, it should be easy to use and maintain, in order to minimise maintenance costs and ensure optimal security.
