Why You Need CAPLOK
With every aspect of Physical Security, it is always a challenge to find the most effective solution. .
In this environment, there are few new developments that will have such a profound effect as the introduction of the CAPLOK Captive Door Locking System
Developed by Sanctum Locks, the Captive Door Locking System sets a new and significantly higher standard in door security. While maintaining a normal door swing action, with Captive Door Locking, now the door is held securely closed by the doorframe structure capturing the entire length of both sides of a door this is no longer the function of the locks or hinge.
With a CAPLOK solution, a lock has a far less demanding function of only preventing the door sliding sideways. This has not only allowed the development of the new and far more effective "Compressive Block Locks", it ensures any existing lock is significantly stronger, more reliable and better controlled.
Although the CAPLOK System improves many aspects of an effective security door or barrier installation, it is the unique Captive Door feature that ensures a cannot be forced open that makes a CAPLOK solution a clearly superior alternative
When the door is closed and secured, both door sides are securely held captive within two deep channels formed into the doorframe.
In the Captive position, any door is significantly more resistant to damage and far better secured against forced opening. The strength offered by the captive doorframe is so great, the entire length of at least one side of the door structure must be severely compromised to allow it to be extracted from the capture channel before the door can be forced open.
As long as a door remains structurally sound, with CAPLOK it cannot be forced open.
This has not only lead to the development of new and significantly more effective range of locks for this system, it now makes some other commercial locking products far more effective for even the most demanding applications.
With the CAPLOK System allowing the doorframe to directly strengthen and enhance other aspects of the door structure, not only does a CAPLOK SECURITY DOOR provide a better alternative, many existing doors will be far more effective than if they were fitted to a conventional doorframe.
By combining the unmatched strength and resilience to attack and tamping provided by the Captive doorframe with the greater strength, security and control form a range of new and existing locking and door products, a CAPLOK installation will provide a far more effective solution for almost any security door or barrier application.
