Sliding wood or aluminium/glass casement doors proves to be a challenge to most home owners and interior designers because the traditional digital lock bolt (the rectangular block of metal than comes out when locked) works only for swing open type door; for a sliding door, the bolt will - well just slide out from the hole.
This is where Gateman digital locks come in with their vertical clamp bolt style. When locked, it clamps onto the small strike placed on the other side, gripping the panels together very strongly.
You can choose pin, card and fingerprint Gateman digital lock for your next sliding wood or aluminium casement doors in Singapore. Only from Gateman, an iRevo brand, part of Assa Abloy group.
