CAPLOK Forced Door Engagement Cam Mechanism
To further improve the security and control available from any CAPLOK or other locking device the CAPLOK door alignment cam mechanism (DEC) can be added to any custodial or containment application.
This simple manually operated mechanism is installed within the doorframes hinge stile side member. When the door is closed, by simply rotating a small lever or handle, the cam arm forces the door into contact with the front capture channel section; where it is firmly held and prevented from both forward and lateral movements.
The DEC not only ensures the door has moved to the fully captive position, it also allows any manual or electronic lock to operate freely for both engagement and disengagement.
The DEC also prevents any sliding action towards the rear capture channel as well as limiting the door’s lateral movement in this channel.
With the DEC engaged and the door is firmly held captive within the doorframe
