Adams Rite Connects with Dual Force 2190
Security takes on a whole new meaning with the Dual Force 2190, the industry’s first interconnected deadbolt and deadlatch for narrow stile aluminum entrance systems. The product from Adams Rite, an ASSA ABLOY company, provides the functionality of a full mortise lock in a narrow stile package, while meeting stringent building egress requirements.

With the deadbolt project, a turn of the inside lever retracts both the latch and deadbolt simultaneously, providing code-compliant, panic-proof exiting.
