E500 Aluminium Door Shearlock



E500 Aluminium Door Shearlock

This product is a premium quality mortice shearlock, manufactured in the UK. The E500 aluminium door shearlock suits standard aluminium profile doors and frames with a minimum frame depth of 45mm.


  • Fail unlocked
  • Shearlock Dimensions: 165mm x 100mm x 45mm, Armature Dimensions: 165mm x 37mm x 17mm
  • Current Values: 500mA @ 12v
  • Holding force: 1155lb
  • Monitoring available

Each of these shearlocks are powered up and tested before dispatch from our manufacturer. This ensures we supply a reliable product and faults are not an issue on site. The high holding force of 1155lb (a particular advantage of using a shearlock as opposed to a face to face magnetic lock) means the E500 is well suited when security is a key concern. This is thanks to the shear force created when a magnetic shearlock is fitted correctly.

This lock has been specifically designed for aluminium doors only. It is very popular with users wanting to apply access control to commercial aluminium doors. GB Locking Systems have sold these for over 16 years and have had many satisfied customers.

The E500 comes with a boxed control unit with dip switches already set. Full installation and wiring instructions included.

E500 Installation Guidelines
