By Gina Stuelke, CEO of Kenton Brothers
In a technology company like Kenton Brothers Systems for Security, constant focus on opportunities to refine our core values is always the goal.
Continuous learning is one of those core values and it’s imperative to keep us at the top of our game. As you’ll see in the pictures, some of our security specialists take their training opportunities very seriously! Our team had a blast learning the latest electric strike installation techniques at a recent training event sponsored by Assa Abloy, the largest global supplier of intelligent lock and security solutions.
An electric strike is an electrified locking device. These are cut into the jamb of a commercial door to work with a card reader and a commercial access control system to secure an opening. It’s important to know how to survey the door opening properly by evaluating the existing door and frame as well as the existing mechanical locking mechanism to determine if an electric strike is the correct product to do the job.
There is an art form to properly cutting in the strike into the metal frame of a door. It’s not for the faint of heart!
Great job Team KB! Thank you for investing in your skills and adding value to what we can bring to our customers!
