When we pre-install hardware, you save time, money, and headaches. Our certified carpenters and lock masters are trained to install Division 8 hardware, as well as Division 28 access control products. After we install your mechanical and electrical hardware, we test to make sure everything operates correctly and there are no surprises after arriving onsite. Then we organize and label all door components before packaging according to the contractor’s specific requirements.

Onsite Installation

Our installation team has extensive experience with Divisions 8, 10, and 28 on both new construction and tenant improvement projects, including distinct experience in 28/8 integration. Prior to installation, our team walks through the job site to identify any potential challenges. We stay in constant communication with the onsite project manager to coordinate construction schedules. Just as important, our installers and integrators are always professional, organized, respectful, cooperative, and collaborative with other trades on site.

Complete Service and Support

With our national network of integrator partners and American Direct Fulfillment Centers across the United States, we provide turnkey, customized service for projects of every size. Just as important, we provide local service and support for the life of your building’s openings, making sure they operate without fail.
