We develop and produce electrical locks

The company Stendals El AB manufactures electrical strikes and lock products under the STEP brand. At our head office and production facility in Västerås, Sweden we have the entire production chain, from construction and assembly to distribution and sales under one roof.

Stendals El AB is run by Fredrik, Olov and David Stendal. Together we have 34 employees, based in Västerås or from the three sales offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Helsingborg. The company was founded in 1974 by Jan Stendal, who was active in the Swedish mining industry. Today, reliability and flexibility are prioritized, which is facilitated by the development and production under the same roof. In this way, the products can be continuously and efficiently improved.

The product range is mostly made up of electric strikes, although the company also produces automatic flushbolts, electric cabinet locks, break protection and electric locks for overhead doors. All our products are in-house designs that are protected by a number of patents. The products are sold under the STEP brand.

When it has to work

With STEP’s products, you can rely on the entire process being quality assured and on all documentation being in order. All our products are CE marked and many are quality labelled with the voluntary P-mark. Safety and quality can be a matter of life and death and are something we never compromise on. For this reason, ever since our beginnings within the Swedish mining sector and right up to now, we work according to the motto “When it has to work”.

STEP's unique preload-technology

When a door is subjected to pressure, it is not uncommon for the lock to begin to jam. This pressure may have many causes, including that the door is hanging a little askew, that snow or gravel have accumulated at the threshold or that the door’s automatic features are not correctly synced with the lock. In order to prevent this, all of STEP’s products are equipped with unique preload technology. This technical solution means that the lock is reliable and ensures that the door can be unlocked, whatever the cause of the pressure.

Market's widest range of electrical strikes

STEP has the market’s most extensive range of electric strikes. Our products are installed in everything from banks, shopping centres, hospitals, prisons and other high-risk objects, to schools, offices and apartment blocks. We have solutions for all door environments.
