Quick Overview

The Proteco RT18 is a 12-24V electric lock for ideal for double swing gates and 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 RT18 Vertical Electrolock is compatible with all Proteco and myGate gate automation systems and uses an interface device to integrate with the gate control board:-

  • MEL04 Interface + RT18 for Q80A control board
  • MEL01 Interface + RT18 for Q60AR control board
  • MEL03 Interface + RT18 for Q56 control board.

Fail Secure - Remain Locked Without Power

The RT18 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 beauty of electrolocks over magnetic locks (mag locks) is that they are "fail secure" meaning your gates remain locked in a power cut.

Yale Style Keys

During a power cut you can unlock the gate using the manual override key. These are Yale style keys, meaning making duplicates for family, staff and neighbours is hassle free and can be easily done at most key cutters or locksmiths. The RT18 comes with 3 keys as standard.
