One striking plate – four adjustment options
Due to its material properties, steel has physical production tolerances. These production tolerances require that processers must have a high level of technical skills if they produce doors, windows or facades, as some of these production tolerances need to be adapted to ensure a visually perfect appearance.
In the case of doors, the production tolerances can result in the mortise lock in the leaf sometimes not engaging with the strike plate in the frame optimally, despite precise workmanship. This means that laborious and costly reworking needs to be carried out. With the new striking plate 556.411, Jansen has succeeded in saving the processor in having to carry out regrinding work in this instance – the striking plate and the internal fastening bolt can each be turned 180° with only a few handles. By eccentrically arranging the openings, this can compensate for an offset of up to 3 mm.
This also ensure that readjusting doors is easier: the same striking plate can be turned 180° and reinstalled. As a result, there is no need for any manual reworking or to use a new strike plate.
