TJ Bracket

When someone wants to install an electromagnetic lock on the pull side of the door, I feel like it’s my civic duty to warn them that the installation will not be pretty.  I was finally able to get a photo of this application in the T.F. Green Airport today, so I’ll be able to use it as descriptive evidence in the future.

Here’s a photo of a mag-lock installed on the push side of the door (the more common mounting location):

Standard Mounting

And here’s the one at the airport mounted on the pull side.  Yuck.

    I do what I can never to specify magnetic locks at all, but…If you must use a mag lock on an inswinging door and you need to get it out of the corridor, what choice do you have?

    • Lori says:

      You may not have another choice so sometimes the TJ mounting is the only option, but I know some architects who would beat me senseless if I specified that application.

    from a locksmith/service technicians point of view, the Architect
    could use a good “beatdown” or at least a “Browbeating” when they
    specify openings that have to meet some architectural/owner fantasy
    and are a #@$#@$# to service.

    Of course, we all know it’s never the hardware specifier. 🙂 🙂
    No one messes with Lori or her fellow workers. They only are
    trying to meet the requests of the Architect/Owner.

    Ok, I’ve exhausted my allotment of Humor for the day.
