NEW HAVEN, Conn.— Combining a strong and durable design with lower cost of ownership in an effort to improve student safety and security, SARGENT is introducing its 11 Line Grade 1 bored lock. Featuring true interlocking between the lock body and latch for a highest level of strength, this lock is ideal for K-12 schools, and universities with high traffic areas.
The rugged design features true interlocking construction between the cast/machined stainless steel lock body and the latch, exceeding ANSI/BHMA A156.2 Series 4000 Grade 1 cycle test standards by a factor of 10, for greater than 10 million test cycles. The 11 Line withstands 3-1/2 times ANSI/BMHA torque force – over 3,000 in/lbs – on a locked lever, and its lever is tested to have no lever sag even after 8 million cycles. The 11 Line meets or exceeds ANSI/BMHA, UL and cUL fire safety standards.
“Our 11 Line locks are designed specifically with the understanding that schools and universities are high-traffic areas where hundreds of people can enter and exit each day. With the introduction of this lock, we have addressed the need for a highly reliable and durable lock that also offers an increased of security for the safety of students and staff,” said Leslie Saunders, VP, Product Management ASSA ABLOY.
The design of the lock also makes it flexible: only two components need to be changed to accommodate any of its 18 functions. This results in reduced inventory parts and ease of maintenance for service personnel. Additionally, cylinder removal is simple for easy change-outs, and the 11 Line is compatible with many competitive key systems.
The SARGENT 11 Line is designed for easy installation and fits standard 161 door preps with no through bolts, making it ideally suited for retrofit applications as well as new installations. It is available in 10 architectural hardware finishes, multipleADA lever designs and rose designs to accommodate a wide variety of aesthetic requirements. The SARGENT 11 Line lock carries a 10-year limited warranty.
