The Camden CX-EPD1289L Preload RIM Strike

One issue nearly all security professionals have encountered is preload on an electric strike, preventing the door from opening. Preload, a pressure exerted on the keeper of an electric strike, can cause the mechanism not to release, often caused by extreme weather conditions, door misalignment, and or air pressure. This not only disrupts the functionality of door security systems but also poses a risk to the safety and security of premises. The industry's response to this challenge is the introduction of the Camden CX-EPD1289L, a surface mount RIM (Rim Interlocking Mechanism) strike designed to handle preload.

The Right Rim Strike 

The CX-EPD1289L is the first of its kind in the security industry. Introducing a 'No Cut' surface mount RIM strike for Pullman latches, capable of operating with up to 15 lbs. of preload pressure. Its 'Universal' design comes with selectable features like 12/24V, AC/DC operation, and Fail Safe/Fail Secure operation, offering unparalleled flexibility in application​. These features ensure that the CX-EPD1289L can adapt to various door security setups, making it a versatile solution.
