Stanley Offers
Concealed Option
Indianapolis-based Stanley Security Solutions has introduced the new 18AWG (-18) concealed electric (CE) option on its flagship 5-knuckle concealed bearing (CB) hinges, a solution for demanding loads such as exit devices with electric latch retraction requiring greater than average power draw.

The practical design, with all eight wires emerging from a single cluster, has the highest amperage rating in the industry. The two 18 AWG conductors are stranded, silver-plated copper, and use extruded TFE Teflon insulation that is suitable for harsh environments. The six other wires are 28 AWG to be used with options on locksets/exit hardware, such as signaling and triggering. All of the wires conduct electricity regardless of door position.

Arrow Targets Touch-screen Lock to iPhone Generation
Arrow Lock, an Assa Abloy company in New Haven, Conn., offers a touch-screen door lock that combines the function of a cylindrical lockset with a design geared toward the iPhone generation. The Revolution features a touch-screen above the door handle that’s similar to those found on the latest mobile phones. Instead of turning a key to gain entry, people touch the screen to enter a pass code, unlocking the door.

The lock is quick to install and as easy to use as dialing a phone number. It can be used indoors or outdoors and can fit into existing key systems. It features a security override and a battery back-up. The Revolution can be programmed via a voice prompt that guides users through the process to set up codes and authorize users. And yes, the lock can still be operated the old-fashioned way—with a key.

Adjust to GT70
Jackson Corp. in Los Angeles reports that its new GT70 is the only field sizable tubular stainless steel exit device for tempered glass doors. The height of the device can adjust down as much as 12 inches in the shop or onsite. Standard 3- or 4-foot widths are available for all glass doors. The exit device meets ANSI Grade 1 exit device standards.
