Innovation at the Door

American Direct is the only company combining Division 28 and Division 8 product, service, and expertise to deliver totally integrated safety and security solutions at the door opening.

With 28/8 innovation, we are saving clients time, money, and stress. Most important, we are creating more secure spaces for people to work, learn, and live.


We have more than 25 years of experience working in new construction, renovation, and remodel projects for both private and public sector, with an extensive portfolio in commercial, multifamily, hospitality, government, healthcare, and education.

With our deep network of industry partners and nationwide footprint of engineering offices, sales offices, and regional fulfillment centers, we can deliver the best products for the best price. Just as important, we quickly and efficiently respond to any challenges that might arise during a project to ensure your project stays on schedule and on budget.

In this industry, surprises are rarely good. That’s why we partner with general contractors, architects, and end users early in the design process. Our team provides in-depth Division 28 and Division 8 expertise at every phase of pre-construction, including specification review and writing, product recommendation and sourcing, and comprehensive budgeting.

Ensure your project stays on schedule and on budget. Our experienced project managers and vast network of engineering offices, fulfillment centers, manufacturer partners, warehouses, sub-contractors, and commercial integrators enables us to rapidly deploy products and resources to any project anywhere in the country.

Installation and Field Service
We coordinate pre-install hardware, fabrication, onsite installation, and service agreements, all with a single point of contact to assist you throughout the project. And our fulfillment centers and engineering offices located throughout the country provide ongoing maintenance and support long after a project is completed.

In today’s increasingly complex and interconnected world, you need more than just software and hardware to secure buildings.

Our combination of Division 28 and Division 8 product, service, and expertise ensures your buildings are more profitable, more efficient, and more secure.


As a single source for all your door opening product needs, we carry all major manufacturer products for divisions 8, 10, and 28, including access control software and hardware, architectural wood doors, hollow metal doors and frames, mechanical and electronic door hardware, and specialty products.
