Camden Door Controls introduced the first surface mount RIM strike with preload. This CX-EPD1289L grade 1 surface mount RIM strike with latch monitoring also offers a ‘Universal’ strike design that delivers unparalleled application flexibility, with both UL security and fire listings.

The number one reason that RIM strikes fail to operate is pressure on the keepers of the strike, which is known as preload. Preload can be caused by differences in air pressure on each side of the door, a misaligned door, or simply someone pushing on the door before the strike is unlocked. 

The patented design of Camden CX-EPD1289L RIM strikes enables them to operate with up to 15 pounds of preload pressure. This eliminates the need for future service calls for doors that go out of alignment after the strike is installed. And because Camden offers one universal RIM strike that includes both security and fire ratings, field configured latch monitoring, selectable fail safe, fail secure operation, and dual voltage, there’s no need to stock a range of RIM strike models.

A metal mounting jig is included in the packaging, making for fast installation. And, like all Camden strikes, this new 1289L RIM strike is backed by Camden’s 5-year no-hassle product warranty.

“Unlike other strikes on the market, if someone leans against the door to apply pressure to the keepers of the strike and then activates a Request-to-Exit switch to unlock the door, the strike binds and will not unlock," said David Price, Camden’s vice president of communications and business development. "But Camden’s CX-EPD1289L RIM strikes are designed to operate where other strikes fail, setting them apart in the marketplace and ensuring safe and reliable operation.”
