Upgrading access control from doors to drawers

Retrofit Solutions

Facility managers and security system integrators face increasingly unique challenges in protecting people, places and property. Our offering of door and hardware retrofit solutions includes the broadest range of access control products and technologies to meet the needs of any opening, no matter the size, from gates and doors to cabinets and drawers.


The first line of property defense

Gate and fence access control prevent unauthorized personnel from penetrating your facility and assets.

Exterior Doors

Aluminum or Hollow Metal- Upgrade mechanical to electrical

There are many options for upgrading an exterior opening to include access control. Access control can be scaled from traditional devices to hardwired devices or wireless devices based upon application, customer needs, local codes and budgets.

  • Electric strikes quickly electrify an opening and can be tied into an existing access control system in conjunction with a card reader or keypad
  • Upgrading from a mechanical deadlatch to an electrified deadlatch, with compatible deadlatch trim including paddles and levers, is a great solution for retrofit applications where reusing existing trim is preferred
  • Adding an exit device paired with existing trim and an electric strike, or an exit device with electric latch retraction is an easy upgrade
  • Touch sense devices operate electromagnetic locks with a light touch, making egress easy for persons of all ages and abilities

Interior Doors

All-Glass- Access control with aesthetics

Designers’ preference for natural light and a modern aesthetic make glass doors increasingly popular. As glass entryways represent a sizable investment in a building’s visual appeal, it can be challenging to add access control without compromising aesthetics

  • Electromagnetic locks can be easily mounted with glass door brackets at the door header of out-swing doors; a typical user interface would include a keypad or card reader
  • Wireless readers offer an elegant solution for glass entryways by eliminating visible wires and the need for a pedestal
  • Surface-mounted digital glass door locks provides flexible, keyless retrofit access control for all-glass doors
  • Electric strikes for openings with an existing exit device, such as the Rockwood PDU 8000, when used with ESK series stop/strike

Hollow Metal or Wood- Solutions for restricted access applications

We can help assess each opening to determine the ideal access control solution for your specific application and the right mix of products for your facility.

Whether you need traffic control or high-security products for online or offline access controls systems, ASSA ABLOY delivers a one stop shop for securing any opening. Careful consideration of each opening not only enhances the security of your building but also keeps costs in line

  • Keypad access control offering offline capabilities with the convenience and flexibility of pin code credentials
  • Leverage existing doors and hardware and maximize budgets with access control components including electric strikes and electromagnetic locks
  • Delayed egress systems help keep occupants safe and may prevent property loss or theft
  • Compact, affordable cabinet locks for securing standalone doors and drawers in residential, commercial and institutional facilities

Aluminium- Layering access control in the core of the building

Retrofit projects require electromechanical products that provide flexibility, compatibility and digital technology to integrate access control with the facility’s security and administrative systems.

Add another level of protection and convenience with our wide range of devices including electric strikes, electromagnetic locks, and electric locks and latches, which offer the best solution for high-security applications for narrow profile and modular doors.

  • Electromagnetic locks for electrifying high-traffic and high-security openings
  • Quickly electrify the opening with an electric strike with a card reader or keypad
  • Battery operated, keyless entry trim for stand-alone access control when pulling wires is cost-prohibitive; wired or wireless solutions for audit trail capabilities
  • Wired and wireless server cabinet locks with audit trail capabilities to help management meet their security needs while controlling the costs associated with access management
