VX 4400

VX 4400

The only locking system which triggers the alarm BEFORE access was forced

The Vortex is the real first improvement since the creation of the electromagnet. Being a pioneer as a manufacturer, we have managed to reduce considerably the magnet sizes and their power consumptions.

Hybrid Locking

A universal hybrid locking of a very small size fitted with a conical orifice which confines a very strong alloy pin within a vortex of magnetic and mechanical force.

Early warning technology

The Vortex is fitted with pressure sensors: EW technology allows the unit to send an alarm before the access would be forced without authorization. This locking model warns before access was forced. This is a unique advantage on the security market.

HQMag Range

The top of the range: 
The highest holding force available. 

Hi-quality corrosion proof treatment protection: Each series passed salt spray exposure tests following ASTM B117 and ISO 9227 norms. 

The steel quality: 
To avoid any residual magnetism.
