Rutherford Controls introduces new surface mounted electric strike

Rutherford Controls Int’l Corp., July 24, 2009 - Ask any installer about the longest and perhaps most tedious part of installing an electric strike for a Rim Exit Device and you’ll probably hear about cutting the frame and chipping away at the concrete to fit the strike. These exacting cuts and alterations take a steady hand, the right tools and a good dose of patience. The NEW 0162 Electric Strike for Rim Exit Devices delivers a near-effortless installation and will be the rising star in the RCI product line.

“We make a point of listening to installers and based on their feedback we design products to meet their needs. The 0162 Rim Strike is a great example of this," says RCI President, Vicky Rutherford.

The 0162 is compatible with Exit Devices from most major manufacturers and is ideal for any type of frame. The rugged, stainless steel construction and conventional keeper design offer added security and reliability. Standard features and benefits include; dual voltage for additional flexibility in the field, plug-in wire connectors for a fast and easy installation and up to ¼” horizontal adjustment, for mis-aligned doors and frames.

Best of all, this Rim Strike is entirely surface mounted and installs flush against the frame. No cutting means installers get it done faster and easier.
