    I have installed a monitored maglock but the customer would like the access control system to monitor the door position as well as locked unlocked status?

    You can add a DPM300 or DPM500 kit to the magnet to achieve this, it replaces the terminal cover on the magnet and adds a secondary magnet to the armature plate. The new terminal cover has a read switch incorporated allowing door position monitoring to take place.

    I want to use a maglock but the door is full glass, is this possible?

    Yes, in most cases. Please see our UBK range of brackets to accommodate glass doors and headers.

    I have installed a maglock but seems to have no holding force when the door is shut but there is magnetism on the magnet?

    Check to see if the armature plate on the door is fixed tightly against the door. The plate should have a rubber bush sandwiched between 2 washers fitted behind it to allow self-alignment and therefore full holding force.

    Do I need to install a suppressor to the maglock?

    No. All CDVI locking devices come with an internally fitted varistor, so you only need to connect power.
