The standard Trident is an exit lock. In order to panic hardware requirements (generally for larger occupancies), Securitech extends the length of the paddle and also do a return on the end of the push bar where fire hoses cannot get caught. Trident has California State Fire Marshal approval. With self locking, extended paddle, return and fire rated Trident is a fully compliant unit for use on fire doors in corridors and etc. A self-locking exit lock unit can be upgraded to an exit device just by swapping out the paddle for the extended one.
Trident alarms are mounted on the wall, not the door. When the door is opened, the sound stays in the facility, not out into the parking lot.
Securitech offers both battery and hardwired units. The Battery version (TEL-AG1) is popular because it does not require wiring. In new construction with electrical trade on site, the hardwired (TEL-AG2) is often selected.
A door position switch is available so the customer knows the door is closed and bolts are locked. This signal then goes to their access control system as a monitored point. The unit has separate monitoring output option if needed for interfacing with other alarms (whether or not you use the Trident alarm), CCTV or other. A remote or louder horn (e.g. large warehouses) option is available.
Trident works with a standard mortise cylinder, so it can be keyed to all major key and core systems.

Detex Tailgate Detection System
Door alarms can also annunciate inappropriate entries. For 24-hour gyms where customers use their membership credentials to gain entry at all hours, it is desirable to be sure these paid privileges are not abused.
The Detex AT-5200 Series Tailgate Detection System assures that only one individual enters a secured doorway for each authorized card read. Because it is compatible with most card reader technologies, the AT-5200 is easy to retrofit. It mounts on standard door frames.
