Adams Rite Hookbolt
This is one of the three most common mortise locks found in an aluminum storefront door. Similar functionally to a deadbolt, the only difference is the tip of the hookbolt engages behind the aluminum frame. Used in aluminum sliding doors to lock them together, as a regular deadbolt does not have a hook to accomplish this functionality. These locks can also be found in swinging aluminum doors.
Adams Rite Deadbolt

handle and generally speaking lasts longer.
Used in conjunction with locks that use a latch type mechanism. Electric strikes can be connected to an access control system or to a door release. They are used to electrically lock and unlock a door. Electric strikes can be used with mortise locks, leversets, knobsets, panic devices, and Adams Rite Deadlatches.
Magnetic (Mag) Lock
It can be installed on nearly any type of door. Similar to electric strikes, they can be connected to an access control system or to a door release button. They are used to electrically lock and unlock a door. Mag locks only remain
locked when power is applied. In the event of a power outage, the mag lock will not keep the door locked. Also, many municipalities, cities, and states, have specific rules and regulations regarding the use of mag locks under specific circumstances.
Electrified Exit Device Trim
Used in conjunction with an exit/panic device, this allows remote unlocking (or via access control) of the device from the outside of the door.
Available in a variety of finishes, strengths, sizes, and styles, door closers are used to ensure the closure of a door. The speed at which the door closes can be adjusted.
Alarmed Exit Device

prevention of theft, these devices are applied to doors that are not opened on a regular basis.
Used to always allow free egress from the ‘in’ side of a door. Exit devices are often the only fire/life safety device approved for installing on an exterior door in a commercial space. Exit devices are available in a variety of qualities,
finishes and designs.

Vertical Rod Exit Devices
Available in either surface mount (applied to the surface of the door) or concealed (installed inside the door). These devices are most commonly used on double doors. The devices lock into the top of the frame and a
strike installed on the saddle or floor.
Used on commercial doors, a lever, as opposed to a knob, complies with ADA regulations. Leversets are available in a variety of finishes and lock functions. Some lock functions are the entrance, storeroom, classroom, privacy, passage, communicating, and asylum.
When locked, the bolt is unable to be pried or pushed back (with items like a credit card or screwdriver), hence the name ‘Deadbolt’. These are usually found on doors that also have a knob, lever, handle set, or mortise lockset.
Used instead of a leverset and not as commonly found, knobset are found on interior office doors as well as exterior doors
