Codelocks Inc., a leading access control company that designs and distributes innovative, keyless door locks and access solutions, achieved UL 10C certification (Positive Fire Pressure Tests of Door Assemblies) and a three-hour fire rating for models within its mechanical, electronic and smart lock ranges. There are fire-rated legal requirements in all commercial and non-domestic buildings, and the CL610/5, CL5210, CL5510 and CL5550 are certified for the maximum 180-minute fire rating.
These locks can be used on any fire-rated opening without negatively impacting its fire certification and safety. While other products in the marketplace may appear to be ‘heavy duty’ enough to use, if they are not specifically fire-rated, installing them on an opening that is fire-rated will void the entire opening’s compliance.
The CL610 and CL615 mechanical locks allow for single code entry; the CL5210 electronic lock allows for multiple code users; and the CL5510 and CL5500 smart locks allow for smart card access and multiple code users. The CL5510 and CL5550 are also available with NetCode® technology, allowing temporary access through date- and time-sensitive codes. Now, the industry has multiple options for secure fire-rated openings, including advanced smart locks, that will work during the moments you need them the most.
