Shoot Bolt – Solenoid Bolt – Electric Drop Bolt

Shoot Bolt offer a discreet and secure locking solution. Most can be mounted vertically or horizontally and are available in a range of options including dual voltage, Slimline fitting, Door and lock monitoring, Surface and glass fitting options.

The monitored option simply means that the door status can be monitored to determine and confirm if the door is open or closed. Inside the drop bolt is a set of voltage free Hall Effect contacts providing Normally Open and Normally Closed contacts (N/O & N/O)

With these contacts you can connect them to a sounder, buzzer, alarm system, light or anything else that would require a voltage set of free contacts to trigger the device when the drop bolt and the catch plate is separated. Ideal for aluminium, steel or timber inward or outward opening doors or double swing doors for vertical or horizontal installation

When should I use Shoot bolt for securing a door ?

What power supply should I use?
Double check you lock operating voltage firstly then remember and allow for a minimum of 30% extra amps – This is due to most Shoot bolts using 1 amp on pull in

How easy is it to fit?
This will depend upon experience but typically, it will take about an hour
