Allegion Introduces LCN 6400 COMPACT Series Low-Energy Operator

Aug. 3, 2021
The new product is aimed at retrofits and touchless applications.

Allegion US announced today the launch of the LCN 6400 COMPACT series low-energy automatic operator for touchless access and accessible operation on interior doors. Designed for use in a variety of institutional and commercial facilities, it also is the only auto operator on the market that can convert existing LCN 4040XP mechanical door closers to touchless solutions when combined with an actuator. 

This year marks the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires buildings to make certain accommodations for individuals who have disabilities. LCN is working to help facilities, with the COMPACT automatic operator designed to make upgrading an existing opening easier and more cost-effective. The modular design enables the reuse of an existing LCN 4040XP mechanical closer for retrofittable options, which reduces the cost, labor and complexity required to automate an opening.

As facilities work to safely reopen, risk mitigation also is top of mind. High-touch surfaces are a common area of focus because of concerns about the contact transmission of pathogens. Pairing automatic operators with touchless actuators is a common way to address this challenge and enable hands-free operation of an opening. LCN designed the COMPACT automatic operator to make touchless operation simple and attainable for more facilities.

“Many campuses and schools are looking to reopen for in-person classes this fall, employees are returning to offices across the nation and healthcare facilities are continuing to invest in healthy environments,” says Mike Wagnes vice president and general manager of Commercial Americas at Allegion. “Having a touchless solution has become an important consideration for enabling a safe reopening. With the LCN COMPACT automatic operator, facility managers can now offer people additional peace-of-mind that they can return to a building that is both accessible and health-conscious.”

Whether upgrading a single opening, renovating a portion of the building or constructing a new facility, the ANSI A156.19 certified COMPACT Series enables facility managers to promote a healthy and accessible environment. Additional features for the LCN 6400 COMPACT Series Low-Energy Automatic Operator include: 

Simple and intuitive design

  • Motor gearbox assembly connects to a standard 4040XP with a mounting plate and just four screws.
  • Electrified module drives open mechanical closer.
