Solenoid and actuator solutions for security industries


Magnet Schultz Ltd is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of special-purpose electric locking and holding mechanisms for a diverse range of demanding applications within the security sector.

Our solenoid-based technology is used worldwide in applications that keep people safe, prevent access to areas without appropriate authorisation, and protect materials and property from theft or events that might cause damage. Our team has designed solutions for advanced applications in all sectors, including:

  • High-security locking mechanisms to prevent inadvertent access to operators in nuclear power plants and biological research establishments, where regular clean-down is carried out with aggressive chemicals
  • Fail-safe devices for central locking of deck doors on ships and superyachts that deny access to unwelcome visitors while travelling in hostile waters
  • Special locks for automatically operated gates, with very high load capacity and special features for successful engagement of misaligned gates
  • Multi-function locking mechanisms for large ticketing machines, incorporating security materials that resist cutting and drilling while integrating with sophisticated control electronics
