American Direct President, Byron Whetstone, discusses how American Direct is on a trajectory to being an innovative disruptor in the door and hardware industry through its totally integrated security solutions at the door opening.
Among the many special requirements for the facility was a high level of sound control at the door opening so that conversations held in a meeting or training room cannot be overheard in adjacent areas.
Because Olathe sits right in the heart of tornado alley, the project had the requirement of providing enough emergency shelter for all 500 employees. That meant working with specialty suppliers on securing product with much higher safety ratings and performance standards than typical doors and hardware.
The preconstruction consulting offered by American Direct was an important value-added service on the project. When utilized prior to construction, this service provides insurance to the general contractor that with all design concerns considered, the most functional and affordable product has been selected.
Things in the openings industry have changed a lot since I started American Direct back in 1991. I’m pleased to invite you to explore the latest evidence that American Direct continues to evolve with the ever-changing door opening landscape: our updated brand, logo, and website.
When every moment counts, it always helps to be working with an installer who understands the importance of meeting a deadline. Having materials and installation handled by American Direct allowed for a seamless turnkey situation for the contractor when time was crucial.
