The HES 8300 Series Electric Strike is a high performance electric strike that comes fire-rated featuring a concealed design for use with cylindrical locksets. Installing the 8300 Series is simple as there is no cutting on the frame required. Simply remove the existing strike plate, adjust the vertical alignment feature to the latchbolt centerline, and install. Its strength is derived from a unique keeper pin locking design, enabling the 8300 to exceed the ratings of the frame, door and locking hardware. The HES 8300 Series Electric Strike is easy to install and complies with NFPA 80-07 guidelines for retrofit into fire-rated frames.

Applications for the HES 8300 Series Electric Strike include Hospitals, Schools and Universities and Government buildings.
