Overview: SDC specializes in the design and manufacture of premium grade access hardware products. As an established leader in the industry, SDC is the largest independently owned manufacturer of access hardware in the U.S.A.
SDC is part of a select group of ISO 9001 manufacturers that practice an internationally recognized quality management program based on continued improvement of daily operations, product quality and customer satisfaction. Moreover, in a recent survey SDC was rated #1 in quality.
SDC battery powered electronic door locks and keyless entry system provide controlled access for basic and multi-level high security requirements. Priced to compete with entry-level brands, the E70 electronic door locks are with features professionals expect with hardwired systems. The EntryCheck is keypad programmable or PC managed with the addition of the IDT (Infrared Data Transmitter) and software. The wireless IDT is capable of uploading and downloading the programming and audit trail history for 200 locksets and 1500 users for complete keyless entry system and door lock control.
The SDC Electromagnetic Lock is Suited For Interior Doors, Perimeter Exit Doors and Entrances that Require Failsafe Emergency Release Capability.
Compatible with any access control system, SDC 1500 series Magnetic door locks meet the demands of security professionals, and the most rigorous building and fire life safety codes in the world. With no moving parts to bind or wear out, the Security Door Controls electromagnetic door lock provides positive, instantaneous release, whether caused by a signal from the fire command center, remote control or access control.
The Exit Check® electromagnetic delayed egress lock is designed to delay egress through perimeter exit doors for 15 or 30 seconds. Concurrently an alarm sounds while security and personnel are alerted of unauthorized egress. Compatible with access controls and patient wandering systems, SDC Exit Check® Delayed Egress Locks release immediately in an emergency and comply with all national and regional building and fire life safety codes, including NFPA 101, Special Locking Arrangements.
HiTower®, Selectric® and Electra™ locksets provide both the locking and latching features required for fire rated doors to meet security needs and fire life safety code requirements. Whether failsafe or failsecure, controlled access and remote control capability is provided while the door stays latched even when unlocked, maintaining fire door integrity.
SDC mortise lockset and cylindrical locksets are UL Listed and compliant with ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 and ADA requirements.
SDC heavy duty commercial mortise and cylindrical locksets are available in several different functions with a choice of popular lever handle designs. SDC cylindrical and mortise locksets may be specified for use on fire rated and non-fire rated door applications in offices, schools, hospitals, hotels, and commercial and industrial buildings.
An SDC electric strike enables the electrical release of a locked mechanical latch or bolt. Compatible with any access control, SDC electric door strikes are available in a variety of configurations to accommodate several types of mechanical locksets and door and frame styles.
The SDC family of electric bolt locks include long life solenoid driven direct throw mortise bolts, Spacesaver® right angle bolts for narrow frames and door stiles and surface mounted bolt locks for door and cabinet applications. Compatible with virtually any access control system, electromechanical bolt locks are available in failsafe and failsecure modes.
SDC access control power supplies have been developed specifically to support access controls and electric locking hardware. The circuitry design is ideal for the inductive loads generated by access control hardware for high performance and longevity. The modular design is built around several different control modules to meet the most demanding component interface and control logic requirements.
Request-to-exit push bars provide uninhibited egress through access controlled openings equipped with magnetic locks, while eliminating the need for prior knowledge of egress operation and enabling egress with a single natural motion. The use of request to exit push bars eliminates the need for wall mounted exit switches that required prior knowledge and a manual secondary action to unlock the door.
SDC 400 series REX request-to-exit switch is designed to provide a reliable means of egress for access controlled openings in commercial and industrial facilities.
The most common push switch applications include momentary or timed bypass, sustained bypass and alarm shunt. The SDC request to exit switch may be connected to the request-to-exit input of an access control or connected directly to and electric lock.
New Construction or Retrofit - SDC key switch assemblies are compatible with U.S. standard, 1.125” and 1.25” mortise key cylinders and interchangeable core cylinders (not included). Compatibility with a new or existing facility mechanical key system is maintained. Standard switch assemblies are single gang box mounted. Assemblies equipped with narrow faceplates are mounted directly to the door frame.
Recommended for access systems without computer management capability, SDC Control and Annunciator Consoles provide a means of central supervision and control of single and multiple openings within a facility. Available in several configurations, the TCC and RCC Consoles provide remote lock control, door status and lock status. The modular design permits configuration flexibility to meet the demands of different control and monitoring requirements.
SDC specializes in the manufacturing of safety and security access control hardware products and engineering for mantrap system, airlock system and communciating bathroom system needs.
Known as mantrap, interlock or airlock systems, these systems provide safety, security and environmental control between two or more rooms or even hospital bathrooms shared by two patient rooms. Select from standard systems and access hardware to ensure that doors may be locked or unlocked only when the proper conditions exist. Or provide SDC with your special requirements large or small, and we will engineer a mantrap system for you.
