Adams Rite 7160/7170 Electric Strikes Function

Remote electrical control of narrow stile aluminum doors (7160) or hollow metal/wood doors (7170) equipped with a mortise or cylindrical lockset with up to 3/4″ [19.1 mm] latchbolt projection without deadbolt. Electrical actuation unlocks the keeper, releasing the latchbolt so the door may be opened without operating the latch itself. The electric strike must be positioned to accommodate offset mortise latches during installation. Please refer to installation instructions or contact the factory for more information.
