Comprised of a durable mortise lock body, the nexTouch Sectional Mortise Lock features a separate keypad, lever and optional security deadbolt. Similar to the original nexTouch cylindrical, the lock is offered with a choice of a capacitive touchscreen or push button keypad that provides tactile feedback, necessary for ADA compliance. Both versions feature an ergonomic, easy-to-use design with an illuminated keypad. A privacy mode feature works to temporarily disable the exterior keypad to prevent additional entry.
The nexTouch Sectional Mortise Keypad Lock features a low battery indicator when the batteries should be changed. If the batteries drain, users have the option to touch a 9V battery to the terminals on the front of the lock and enter a PIN code, enabling one-time access. The lock supports up to 500 user codes as a standalone lock and is managed with easy voice-guided programming.
If users require advanced access management from any location or device, the lock is available in Z-Wave or Zigbee configurations, or with Data-on-Card technology compatible with Yale Accentra™ cloud-based lock management software. Both upgraded solutions are easily enabled with the addition of a plug-in network module. The connected versions of the lock provide audit trail capabilities with the usage log stored within the software.
“The original nexTouch cylindrical lock proved to be a flexible, reliable, and easy-to-use access control solution for businesses and multi-family facilities across the country,” says Daniel Gills, Director of Business Development for Yale Commercial. “Adding a sectional mortise version of the lock offers our customers more choice in varying commercial applications, including many retrofit opportunities.”
Yale nexTouch Sectional Mortise Keypad Locks will be on display during ISC West 2018 in the ASSA ABLOY booth #8061. For more information about Yale nexTouch solutions, visit www.YaleLocks.com/nexTouch.
