I’ve got an aluminum glass store front door with a very narrow frame for a strike, what alternative do you suggest?
One option you should look at is the Adams Rite Steel Hawk. It’s an electrified dead latch that retrofits to the 4500/4700/4900 series of Adams Rite dead latches. It utilizes the same strike and is compatible with existing handles, levers and paddles. It is multi-voltage adaptable, 12V, 16V or 24V as long as it’s DC. It is available in 31/32″, 1-1/8″ and 1-1/2″ backsets. Of course you still need to bring your power into the door.
Another option would be a magnetic lock.
