Thinking beyond the “fixed-in-position” cabinet for which these locks were designed, electronic cabinet locks are being used to secure a variety of internal and external items.
At a large facility, a locksmith created and installed a lock for a rolling ladder that is kept in a storage room. He used a CompX eLock with motorized latch, heavy gauge custom made metal cabinet and Pullman latch mechanism from a rim exit device. The metal cabinet was secured to a steel support beam within the wall.
The locking concept behind this rolling ladder lock is a “C” shaped bar welded to the ladder in order to get it close enough to the wall. The wall -mounted metal cabinet has a “U” shaped receiver into which the modified “C” shaped bar can slide. The “C” shaped bar has a closed end and bracketing that obstructs tampering to the Pullman bolt.
As the rolling ladder is moved into position, the bar passes the cabinet mounted Pullman latch, causing it to retract on entry into the receiver. Once seated, the Pullman latch extends, preventing the rolling ladder’s release. Many different job classifications have access to this storage room; only the maintenance personnel have access to the rolling ladder.
