Is Your Back Door Protected? (Detex)

Detex introduces a maximum security, multipoint lock so big and strong that it stands up to assault by the bad guys and reduces employee and customer theft.

Exclusive to Detex, the ECL-230X-TDB is a heavy-duty, easy-to-install, three-bolt, multipoint lock. Its construction takes panic hardware to a whole new level of toughness and eases your back-door security worries about the bad guys peeling the bottom of your back door to gain entry.

Built for maximum strength, it is designed with a larger deadbolt that goes deeper into the frame than other locks in the category. Connecting rods are solid steel rather than the less reliable, hollow rod or cable construction. Life-safety and code compliant, the new Detex ECL-230X-TDB serves as both panic hardware and a maximum-strength locking device.

The ECL-230X-TDB includes a photo-luminescent sign available in more than ten color and language combinations, a 100-decibel alarm, and three locking points per door. Together, the three bolts withstand 16,000 pounds of pull force:

  • Top deadbolt—approximately 1” wide by ½” thick, the top bolt provides additional stability to the top corner of the door.
  • Side deadbolt—2¼” tall by ½” thick deadbolt with a 1” throw allows for 3/4” penetration into strike. (Detex recommends flush installation for maximum security.) With more than 1½ square inches of bolt engagement, the side deadbolt provides superior defense against pulling and prying on the side of the door.
  • Bottom bolt—a 5/8” HEX bolt with 3/4” throw engaging the floor with 5/8” penetration provides better attack resistance and superior defense against the “peeling up” of the bottom of the door.

Add suffix DX3 (ECL-230X-TDB-DX3) for six locking points for even stronger security, providing an additional line of defense against break ins. Even if the exterior door hinges are compromised, the DX bolts keep the door locked and secure. These passive deadbolts are easy to install and offer another layer of attack resistance. Through-bolt mounting installation improves the door’s holding strength. You choose the right application and level of protection by choosing one, two, or three bolts for a total of four, five, or six locking points.

  • Locking and unlocking the dead bolt always arms and disarms the alarm.

  • An optional inside pull handle is available.
