Magnetic Lock Installation in EVANSTON IL

Magnetic locks, or electromagnetic locks, are locks that consist of an armature plate and an electromagnet (a magnet whose magnetic field is produced by an electric current). Therefore, such locks need an electrical connection to generate power. The way a magnetic lock works is by having its electromagnetic portion attached to the door frame and its matching armature plate attached to the door. When the door is closed, the two parts are in contact. When a current is generated through the electromagnet, a magnetic flux is created that pulls together the electromagnet and the armature plate and creates a locking action.

Uses for Magnetic Locks

Magnetic locks are usually installed on out-swinging doors, but can also be installed on gates, kitchen cabinets, medicine cabinets, and so on. They are commonly used for emergency exit doors because they don't have any moving parts and therefore are less likely to fail. Now you can find top-quality magnetic locks at North Shore Locksmith, EVANSTON IL.
