Dead Bolt – The FF-L-2890C specification requires a locking device equipped with dead bolt and trigger mechanism that operates when the combination lock is in the locked position. The dead bolt automatically extends into the locked position when the trigger mechanism engages the strike.

Encapsulated Strike – The LKM10K Lock Series comes with a strike that surrounds the dead bolt for reinforced security. As specified four strikes are available for inswing, outswing & pairs of doors.

High Security Combination Lock Compatibility – The LKM10K Lock Series is designed to work with any standard footprint combination lock meeting Federal Specification FF-L-2740B (Kaba Mas X-10 and S&G 2740B). No modificiations to the deadbolt is required.

Access Control Device Compatibility – The LKM10K Lock Series is an electrified lock and is compatible with a variety of electronic access control devices (12v or 24v DC – 1 amp).

Depths of Security – When both the combination lock and access control device are installed with the LKM10K Lock tiers of security are created.
First Tier – FF-L-2740B approved combination lock
Second Tier – Access Control Device or Key Override

Example of Day Locking – The supervisor “unlocks/opens” the combination lock to allow staff to enter throughout the day by utilizing the access control device. The LKM10K Lock Series provides this managerial control. However, once the combination lock is “locked/closed” the access control device and Key Override is negated.

Monitoring Switches – Deadbolt Switch – monitors the Pedestrian Device Bolt (Request to Exit – REX); Combination Lock Switch – monitors the FF-L-2740B Combination Lock Bolt and Entry Monitoring Switch – monitors the Lever Handle




Panic Device (Panic Bar Model) – A device for unlocking a door during emergency conditions. The mechanism consists of a spring-loaded metal bar fixed horizontally to the inside of an outward-opening door. When the bar is pushed or depressed, it activates the mechanism which unlatches the door allowing occupants to quickly exit the area in panic situation. (Type III & IV)

Key Override Option – A separate module is no longer necessary for this option. Key Override is standard on all LKM10K Lock Series models. However, it is optional to utilize, so it can be added with little effort at a later date if necessary. We recommend Key Override because it allows a key to “override” the access control device only. It will not override the combination lock. This capability is particularly important during the event of power outage, failure or malfunction of an access control device, or an emergency that requires expedited entry.

UL Fire Rating – The LKM10K Lock Series is UL Listed. 90 minute rating when installed with a Kaba Mas X-10 and 20 minute rating when installed with a S&G 2740B. This rating is in accordance with the Standard, “Positive Pressure Fire Test of Door Assemblies”, ANSI/UL 10C, UBC 7-2 (1997).

Illuminated Labels – All models of the LKM10K feature an illuminated label for easy visibility in no/low light situations.
