Allegion Introduces the LCN 6400 Compact ™ Series Low Power Automatic Operator, Supporting ADA Compliance and Contactless Access
CARMEL, Ind., August 3, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Allegion US, a leading provider of security products and solutions, today announced the launch of LCN 6400 COMPACT ™ series low consumption automatic operator for contactless access and accessible operation on interior doors. Designed for use in a variety of institutional and commercial installations, it is the only automotive operator on the market that has the ability to easily convert existing LCN 4040XP mechanical door closers into contactless solutions, for both opening and closing automated when combined with an actuator.
Allegion introduces the first and only automatic operator designed to easily automate interior openings.
This year marks the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which legally requires buildings across the country to make certain accommodations for people with disabilities. Although progress has been made, there is still work to be done to ensure equal access for all occupants of the building. Resource limitations are the main obstacle that stands in the way. LCN is working to help facilities overcome this challenge, with the LCN COMPACT Automatic Operator which has been carefully designed to make upgrading an existing opening easier and more cost effective.
The modular design is unique and allows the reuse of an existing LCN 4040XP mechanical door closer, for upgrade options. The simplicity of this solution reduces the cost, labor and complexity required to automate an opening.
As the facilities work to reopen safely, risk mitigation is also a priority. High contact surfaces are an area of common interest, due to concerns about the contact transmission of pathogens. Pairing automatic operators with non-contact actuators is a common way to overcome this challenge and enable hands-free operation of an opening. However, such solutions are generally complex and expensive. LCN designed the COMPACT automatic operator to make contactless operation simple and accessible for more installations.
“Many campuses and schools are looking to reopen for in-person classes this fall, employees are returning to their offices across the country, and healthcare facilities continue to invest in healthy environments. Having a contactless solution has become a factor. important to allow a safe reopening, “said Mike Wagnes, Vice President and General Manager of Commercial Americas at Allegion. “With LCN COMPACT automation, facility managers can now offer people additional peace of mind by allowing them to return to a building that is both accessible and health-conscious.”
Whether modernizing a single opening, renovating part of the building or constructing a new facility, the ANSI A156.19 certified COMPACT series enables facility managers to promote a healthy and accessible environment. Additional features of the LCN 6400 COMPACT ™ Series low power automatic operator include:
