Magnetic Lock Kits with NFPA compliant Egress Controls.

When using electromagnetic locks in a typical application, there are additional pieces of hardware that must be installed in order to comply with building fire codes. Highpower’s magnetic lock kits are designed to meet NFPA fire regulations for access control egress applications.

In accordance with NFPA codes, typically there must be a minimum of two devices used to release the electromagnetic lock. One device can either be a PIR motion detector or an electrified exit release bar (also called a “crash bar”). The second device must be a manual release button that has the words “PUSH TO EXIT” labeled. This push button must provide a 30 second time delay when pushed, and the time delay must act independent of the access control system (the delay must work on its own not tied into any other access control system). If the building has a fire alarm system, the electromagnetic lock must be tied into the fire control system so that the lock releases (unlocks) automatically during a fire alarm. The electromagnetic lock and door must also release upon the loss of main electrical power. Highpower magnetic lock kits may not be compliant with loss of power considerations if used with the on-board battery backup. Consult with your local fire authority to determine what codes are applicable in your jurisdiction.

Highpower’s DS-1200 electromagnetic lock kits are designed to meet these general code requirements, and are packaged optionally with a full size power supply designed to provide the correct current to ensure full performance with the DS-1200 magnetic lock. If you have your own existing power source, our DS-1200 electromagnetic lock kit with our power supply may be appropriate.
