The new SE (Silent Electrification) Motorized Latch Retraction Option for The RITE Door® is the latest innovation for Adams Rite’s line of integrated door assemblies. Since its debut, the SE Option has been quickly embraced by security professionals worldwide. Their consensus? The Silent Electrification Option is one of the most secure, quiet and flexible ways to electrify a door opening.
This is great news for the healthcare industry due to the fact that hospitals today are four times noisier than they were in 1960 (from 57dB to 72dB). In light of the fact that noise is the number one customer complaint in healthcare and hospitality facilities, the SE Option is guaranteed to be an effective tool in solving this growing problem.
Additionally, a growing number of office buildings, schools, hotels and apartment complexes that use these near-silent devices are benefitting from the lower operating power which allows for lighter gauge wiring and a reduced amperage power supply. This new silent electrification platform also negates the need for heavy, bulky and expensive power supplies.
• Motor-driven latch retraction

• Preload release capable
• Combines electric latch retraction and electric dogging
“We are excited to develop a product that has a significant positive impact in patient care and recovery in healthcare environments, as well as reducing noise in traditionally quiet settings” said Scott Baker, President of ASSA ABLOY EMS & OEM Group. “Along with the numerous benefits of The RITE door, it’s an unbeatable combination.”
Developed with the input of industry professionals and end users, The RITE Door integrated system is a high-performance door with pre-installed hardware that meets fire codes, is quick and easy to install and combines durability and style into a single package suitable for the highest traffic and most demanding locations. It also features a generous range of colors and options to blend with any application.
For security pros trying to balance price, ease of installation, and performance, the new motorized SE (Silent Electrification) Option for The RITE Door provides a powerful, whisper-quiet, energy efficient solution as an alternative to traditional solenoid-driven devices.
