A long term business customer in Montclair, needed a high security installation.
We used reinforcing plates, referred to as ““Mag” plates, as well as Medeco high security deadbolts in brushed chrome.
A Caldwell salon owner wanted a buzzer system to screen people after hours. We had to change the door hardware, and install a Adams Rite electric strike. What is pictured is his work station. We ran molding for the wires,
to a box, and ran the wire for the release button through his storage cabinet, which you can see on the side.
What you see on the door frame is referred to as an electric strike. These are the items that allow someone inside to “buzz” someone in. As in this case in Montclair, on an attorney’s office, they are frequently put in incorrectly. They choose the wrong kind for the lock. They choose the wrong voltage, and so on. We replaced the existing strike
with a Rutherford controls 7114.
Stairwells that go to roofs on apartment buildings cannot be locked, but management does not want anyone on the roof.
This building in central Montclair had such a door. We installed a Detex ECL-230D, an emergency release deadbolt with alarm if opened without the authorized key. Satisfying safety and security.
The wind had broken the doors, and the bottom of the doors was buried in the flat roofing material and could not be disturbed.
We took the doors down and rehung them with Pemco continuous hinges, cut short so as to not disturb the roof. And then we repaired the Jackson door closers.
