A customer called, with a mausoleum, in the Montclair NJ area. The door needed to be open during viewing hours, but lock up by itself after hours.
A long term customer in Montclair called for hardware replacement on their two main entry doors, to be electrically released. The doors were challenging to say the least. Extremely heavy steel stock with expanded mesh.
The old hardware holes did not correspond with the new ones. We helped them to hire welders, who under our direction, covered old holes, and installed metal plates to receive the new electric strikes. We used Von Duprin heavy duty rim mounted panic bars with stationary pulls. We used HES surface mounted electric strikes.
A Montessori school in Essex County NJ called asking for a new locking system for their main front door. It needed to be a grade 1 computerized keyless entry, which conformed to life safety. They also wanted it to work for different staff schedules, and calendar days.
We installed a Kaba E Plex 5300 series electronic lock, matched with an Arrow 1200 panic bar inside. The customer programs it with a wireless infra red controller and an inexpensive net book computer.
