FF: Screwy Armatures

If you are familiar with mag-locks, you know that the holding force of the magnet is hundreds or thousands of pounds.  But the security of these locks relies on the constant flow of electricity AND proper installation.  As the saying goes…”‘A chain is only as strong as its weakest link,” and this applies to mag-lock installations as well.  I’ve seen some creative mounting efforts, but these have me shaking my head.

Thank you to a certain vertically-gifted photographer and connoisseur of problematic door openings for sharing the wealth.

    Have seen many like this and with chains connected to them in case they fall off the door . Had one job that after the units were installed and tested only to be called the next day to be informed they did not hold the door closed . We found out that the on site supintendant thought we did not complete the installation correctly so he tightened up all the armature plates cause he thought they were too loose …lol
    As anyone who has installed Mag locks knows they need to pivot in order to align with the mag unit .
