Quick Overview

The Proteco RT16 is a 12-24V electric lock for ideal for single swing gates. Electro-lock have two primary roles; firstly securing the gate to enhance access control so the gate cannot be forced open (even if already using irreversible motors); secondly to protect the irreversible motors on longer gates where the leverage strains of wind forces and humans inadvertently pushing the gate will progressively damage the gearing unless the gate is locked in place.

Therefore, it is recommended to install an electro-lock on all electric swing gates longer than 3m.

The RT16 Horizontal Electro-lock is compatible with all Proteco and myGate gate automation systems and uses an interface module to integrate with the gate control board:-

  • MEL04 Interface + RT16 for Q80A control board
  • MEL01 Interface + RT16 for Q60AR control board
  • MEL03 Interface + RT16 for Q56 control board.

Fail Secure - Remain Locked Without Power

The RT16 will unlock from a standard open command from your remote key fob. It can also be opened manually with a key that can be used in the event of a power cut. However, it should be noted the advantage of electrolocks over magnetic locks (mag locks) is that they are "fail secure", meaning your gates remain locked when power is cut.

Yale Style Keys

During a power cut you can unlock the gate using the manual override key. These are Yale style keys, making duplication for family, staff and neighbours easy and hassle free at most key cutters or locksmiths. The RT16 comes with 3 keys as standard. The RT16 is ambidextrous and can be fitted on either a left-hand or right-hand gate without any issues.
