A comfortable service with closing the door without using the handle is the biggest advantage of the magnetic locks.
Magnetic mechanical lock has a similar construction to the standard mortise lock, the only difference is in the latch and counterpart.
A magnetic lock has a latch and counterpart fitted with magnets that attract each other and when you close the door latch lock engages the counterpart quieter and more efficiently than by the standard lock with classical latch. But it is not completely silent. A very important role plays structure of the door. If you want the quietest door running, avoid hollow or the honeycomb structure of door. The lock with standard latch hitting the edge of the door and makes more noise. You can see the counterpart by door looking at the edge by the non-rebated doors which disturb the complete design of door and doorframe.
Magnetic lock, which is delivered with the logo M&T, has a guarantee of 150,000 cycles, assuming proper installation into the door and frame (must be observed spacing distance between the metal counter and lock max 5 mm). The lock is suitable for rebated and non-rebated door version. For the rebated variant with a counter plate rebate of 14, 18, 22 mm. For non-rebated one adjustable striking plate of 24 mm.
For correct functionality of the lock is important to observe the following instruction:
Magnetic locks provide user comfort during the manipulation with the door. Magnetic locks M&T are structurally prepared for half groove/rebated and non-rebated doors. A welcome innovation is striking plate for non-rebated doors. The main advantage is a colour option of lock surfaces, which corresponds to the surfaces of door handles. Locks are ready in all variants locking. Locks come standard with an universal striking plate suitable for rebated and non-rebated doors.
