Electric lock EL480

EL480 is a handle controlled solenoid lock used in narrow profile doors. Handle controlled locks are best suited in medium traffic doors. The locks can be electrically controlled by access control system or by a remote control system such as timer, keypad or push button. The locks can be used both in exit doors and fire rated doors (EN).


ABLOY® EL480 is recommended to be used in interior doors of business premises, public buildings, hospitals, educational premises and the exterior doors of apartment buildings and detached houses. The handle controlled locks are not suitable for use with door automatics.  


Handle controlled locks can be set to function as fail locked or as fail unlocked. In the fail locked setting, the lock can be opened by handle when power is on and cannot be opened by handle when power is off. In the fail unlocked setting, the electrical function is reversed. The locks are always automatically deadlocked when the door is closed. In ABLOY® EL480 the outside handle is electrically controlled. The lock can always be opened by inside handle or by panic bar. In order to function correctly, the handle requires a split spindle. Mechanical opening by cylinder is always possible.
