When installing an electromagnetic lock, the door and jamb material determines the type of fastener. When installing the unit onto a wood jamb, follow the manufacturer's fastener recommendations. When installed the lock onto a hollow metal or aluminum jambs, the use of blind nuts is recommended.
Choosing the power supply and access control mechanisms including keypad, key switch, momentary button, sensors, proximity cards or magstripe cards will usually vary from job to job. Contact the electromagnetic lock manufacturer for recommendations regarding the best way to apply and install their products. Most electromagnetic lock manufacturers will provide wiring diagrams, riser diagrams, and other information that can provide your customer with the best access control system for their needs.
