    Detex Gets Tough with Security Door Hardware

  • Industry News January 25, 2013

    Detex Corporation offers new high-security life safety door hardware systems designed for retail.

    Installed on doors that require higher levels of security, these extra-tough hardware systems are scalable to provide the level of security that matches a retailer’s specific needs.

    Certain high-security and retail applications require a combination of components, and Detex features a range of hardware designed specifically for the job. In addition, Detex provides complete systems that efficiently meet more complex application requirements.

    Retail customers can select the exact combination of components that suit their particular application, and know that the components will integrate easily with each other and function well as a system.

    At the core of the system, and built to withstand the most aggressive attempts to break through rear doors, the 230X Maximum Locking Strength Multi-Point Panic Hardware is engineered with an extreme-duty, triple-bolt design that withstands 10,000 pounds of pull force.

    Single and double-bolt and weatherized models are available. Additional components include V50 and 20 Series Vertical Rod Exit Devices for dependably tough protection on double doors, as well as Detex Door-Propped Alarms, battery-powered or wired, designed to sound a warning when exterior doors are propped open by personnel.

    “Considering the configuration of your retail setup, Detex can provide a choice of security hardware systems that are very powerful deterrents,” says Ken Kuehler, national accounts manager at Detex. “Once we talk to you about your requirements, we can help you tailor a combination of hardware that works together to function dependably in a panic situation, while raising your protection level in high-risk areas.”

    For more than a century, Detex has earned the trust of architects and owners, who rely on Detex products for the life safety and security of people and property.

    A U.S. company, Detex designs, manufactures, markets, and ships products from New Braunfels, Texas. Detex is known internationally for life safety and security-door hardware, loss prevention and architectural hardware, integrated door security systems, and guard-tour verification.
