Falcon MEL is an affordable, energy-efficient around-the-door solution using motorized latch retraction.

Motorized electric latch retraction (MEL) provides energy-efficient electronic control of an exit device for an affordable around-the-door solution. The MEL option is Falcon’s® solution of choice for multifamily and commercial real estate facilities where cost-competitive electromechanical latch retraction is desired.

These devices always provide mechanical egress. Motorized electric latch retraction can be used with credential readers to unlatch doors momentarily for authorized users, or it can be incorporated with systems to retract latches for extended periods of time to allow free entry. This is a convenient alternative to mechanical dogging. Doors with automatic operators also often incorporate exit devices with electric latch retraction.

  • The MEL application requires the use of a power supply
  • Power transfer hinge or electric power transfer required
