Protecting Deeply Recessed Doors

APPLICATION

Surface Mount Applications

Five methods are presented here for protecting deeply recessed doors with surface mount contacts. Note that when mounting on steel, a spacer should be used behind the switch, and/or a wide gap switch should be used.

INSTALLATION

Method 1: Magnet with Spacers

Sentrol has a range of spacers available for each contact series. Stack spacers until magnet aligns with switch when the door is in the closed position.

Method 2: Interlogix Switch on Inside of Jamb

This is a desirable mounting technique because no brackets are required. Use only on a door with a reliable stop so that the door cannot swing inward and hit the switch.

Method 3: 1082, 1085T, or 1045T Series with Bracket

Verify that the distance from the inside of door frame to inside of door does not exceed 1" (2.54 cm). If over 1" this application cannot be used - use Methods 4 and 5.
