Additional Access Control Location | Ask the Experts | Ask the Electronic Access Ace

Question:

I have a client who wants to add access control to a second location. Based on the door, frame, and surrounding exterior, I am wondering if there is any reason why we couldn’t install a mullion reader right on the swinging door. I intend to use the Adams Rite Steel Hawk electrified latch so there will already be wires running through the aluminum frame of the door. What are your thoughts?

 

Answer:

It could work, but you will have to use a larger transfer hinge or door cord to get your 8 reader wires through.
