The SDC 1590 sliding door magnetic mortise lock series is a compact mortise electromagnetic lock with 850lbs of holding power packed in a 10"L x 1.4375"W x 1.5"D steel case. The 1590 magnetic lock is ideal for securing sliding or swinging, manual or automatic doors. Its durability for high frequency use and its mortise installation make it the choice of specification writers, owners and architects.
With only two parts, the lock mortised in the frame and the armature in the door, the 1590 magnetic lock secures the door in a closed position. When power is cut the lock releases instantly. When used with industrial sliding doors, two 1590 locks may be used to provide up to 1700lbs of holding power.
