The ES8000, also known as the V-lock is a high torque motorised bolt that moves from the vertical position to the horizontal state when locked. The bolt moves into the V shaped strike plate pulling the door aligned with the lock. The high torque motorised bolt can be concealed from view or surface mounted and has the worlds first fail-open motor locking mechanism. Slim design with classic satin stainless steel faceplate, and significant 7mm overall (+/- 3.5mm) door misalignment tolerance make ES8000 a product with great aesthetic appearance as well as easy installation.
