ASSA ABLOY helps open the door to Armstrong Locksmiths' showroom


When Armstrong, New Zealand’s leading locksmith and alarm specialists decided to create a new showroom, they requested ASSA ABLOY New Zealand to provide them with the security solutions and convenient entry for their customers.

For easy access into their showroom, ASSA ABLOY recommended the Besam Powerswing automatic swing door operator complete with a slide rail system, equipped with BEA 4SAFE. Installed on their swing door’s leaf, the 4SAFE brings safety to the users by avoiding them coming into contact with the moving door. This great additional safety feature is particularly suitable for protecting people with disabilities.

To secure their entrance door, ASSA ABLOY recommended the Interlock COBALT SA for single acting doors. This motor driven electronic lock provides the utmost versatility with installation. Able to be mounted in either horizontal or vertical, mortice or surface mount. Among its main features, the COBALT has the ability to pull in a misaligned door and the ability to release under excessive side load pressure when requested. COBALT locks provide high security with the locking cams having a 10,000N holding force (1,000kg). The COBALT is also available for double acting doors and will compensate for misaligned doors +/‐ 8mm.

For additional convenience, Armstrong has opted for the Magic Switch, a deliberate contactless microwave sensor. The Magic Switch offers homogeneous detection thanks to the radar technology. Its detection area is adjustable between 10 and 50 cm. The Magic Switch is ideal where the lack of contact with the sensor is required as in hospital environments, hotels and restaurants, retail and pharmaceutical industries.
