Manual flush bolt

Both release and locking of the passive door-leaf is made manually. All our manual flush bolts is operated by a lever-mechanism.

Automatic flush bolt

Release of passive door-leaf is done automatically, when the active door-leaf is opened, and the falling latch is released. Locking is obtained automatically when active door-leaf closes, when the falling latch is pushed in and thereby activates the bolt. Automatic flush bolts is often recommended where fire-proof demands exists.

Semi-automatic flush bolt

Release of passive door-leaf is done manually. Locking is obtained automatically when passive door-leaf closes. The bolt is constantly activated, which means that this flush bolt can only be fitted at the top of the passive door-leaf. Recommended as a complementary product where an automatic flush bolt is installed at the bottom of the passive door-leaf. This installation results in an easy made manual releasing sequence and a secure locking sequence in two steps, which also contributes to a smoother closing of the door-set.
