Fortress has designed a mechanism that traps the actuator in the head until the key is removed which then allows the gate to swing over the keyhole. While the actuator remains out of the head, the gate remains over the keyhole preventing the key being returned to the lock.
E1 ensures a specific sequence of operation and can be stacked or combined with other adaptors; up to 5 key adaptors can be used in one configuration. It also provides a link to the mechanical mGard range of interlocks.
E1 works with access key and safety key adapters, amGard LOK or STOP bodies and is suitable for either hinged or sliding door applications. The modular arrangement of amGard allows customers to configure products to suit their application.
