Electric Bolts And Strike Plates Provide Remote Access At University Headquarters

Electric Bolts And Strike Plates Provide Remote Access At University Headquarters

Electric bolts from Alpro Architectural Hardware are protecting students, staff and visitors at the University of Westminster headquarters in Regent Street, London.


The Alpro EB1001 is a 12vDC stainless steel bolt and strike plate assembly with a 15mm diameter and throw. It allows remote access and exit control of most timber, metal and UPVC doors.


The units offer installers optimum flexibility and can be fitted in the frame or on the door itself. A plug-in LED bolt indicator and stainless steel dress plate for covering the brushed aluminium faceplate are supplied as standard. Facilities managers can set the auto relock function for 0, 3, 6 or 9 seconds and installers can use a chromate steel surface mounting kit where required.


These bolt and strike plates operate with an activating current of 1000mA and a holding current of 250mA. They feature a continuously rated solenoid and are fully protected against transient and reverse polarity. The varied installation options are designed to provide concealed high security locking on any single or double-action hinged or sliding door in timber or metal for vertical or horizontal mounting.


Keith Parry, Divisional Sales Manager at Alpro, said: “Our coverage is nationwide but in the capital alone, Alpro equipment has been installed at landmarks and major infrastructure sites including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the London Eye and St Pancras International. The university’s Regent Street site has a ramped entrance and stair climbers, and the Alpro units have been installed in compliance with the Disability and Discrimination Act 2004, this being standard practice across all of the company’s operations.”


The University of Westminster currently has over 20,000 students from 150 countries and is recognised for excellence in both undergraduate achievement and research work across art and design, electronic engineering and the media. The Regent Street premises have been a centre for public education since 1840.


The Alpo bolts and strike plates are protecting a building which houses the Vice Chancellor’s office, the school of social sciences and the departments of humanities and languages. Former students of the University of Westminster include fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, sculptor Sir Anthony Caro and pop musician Charlie Watts.
