The YD38L is a dual action, self latching, electronic deadbolting, high security door lock. Designed to eliminate door alignment problems, the YD38L first ‘captures’ the door with a magnetic latch, then secures the door with its deadbolting lock pin. This dual action ensures the lock aligns correctly with the strike plate allowing for consistent locking even on swing through doors and is a unique feature developed by Magna. Because of its larger size the YD38L is primarily designed for securing commercial doors, and with the magnetic latch addition this innovative lock offers a perfect solution for secure, reliable operation. Hidden in door frames or surface mounted to glass doors with the aid of accessories, the YD38L is made to the highest specifications and boasts the following features;

  • Dual action with the magnetic latch to capture the door and the deadbolt to secure it.
  • Holding force of 20,000N with automatic deadbolting pin.
  • Monitoring of both Door and Bolt positions.
  • Voltage input of 12 – 24VDC can be supplied.
  • Current consumption reduction to save power.
  • Integrated access control that offers multiple attempts to lock and unlock, anti-tailgate, anti-tamper, and auto relock.

The YD38L can be connected to advanced access control systems where logging and traffic reports are important which makes it the ideal solution for centrally controlled buildings. It provides feedback of both door and bolt positions which can be used in conjunction with a the security and access system to fully monitor and control movement.
