TZ Rack Locking

The TZ SlideHandle system is an intelligent locking system for use with all major racks in data centres that allows for existing swinging doors on racks to be retrofitted. Using minimal energy the locking mechanism is composed of a special metal containing Shape Memory Alloy (SMA), which operates the doors and allows timed authorised access through ID card sensor technology. Alternatively it can be remotely triggered. Multi-coloured LEDs indicate the locking status of the doors and are visible up to 30 metres away. TZ SlideHandle is powered and controlled via the TZ Praetorian™ Junction or TZ Centurion™ Bridge gateway systems. In the event of a power outage, authorised users can use a manual multi-key override in order to access the racks.


A retrofitable replacement for traditional manual swing-handle data center cabinet locks that offers many adaptor and mounting systems.

Designed to be installed onto a broad range of cabinets and enclosures, this server cabinet lock leverages its embedded micro-processing, integrated sensing and switching capability to offer the next generation of electronic locking.

TZ SlideHandle server cabinet locks are powered and controlled using either RS485 serial data communications or dry contact closure via standard UTP Cat5e/Cat6 cabling through a TZ Praetorian Junction or TZ Centurion Bridge. TZ SlideHandle can also be direct connected to standard access control or dry contact closure.
