New Lock on Glen Ridge Home

Our customer in Glen Ridge called with an old broken mortise lock.
We replaced it with a new Baldwin Boulder 3/4 escutcheon  mortise lock in Venetian bronze. We also installed an Yale touchscreen deadbolt for keyless access.
The installation was completed with a q-lon molding weather stripping system.

Replaced Incorrectly Installed Electric Strike Door

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.

Rooftop Security Door

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.

How to Install New Hardware on Door Full of Holes

New homeowners in the South End Estate section of Montclair inherited a house filled with broken locks. These were the mortise lock or skeleton key lock variety.
How to get new hardware installed, on a door full of holes? As pictured we can fill all holes and install new hardware.
In this case the customer decided on non lacquered polished brass. We installed the Baldwin 5024 oval passage knob. The doors are painted and turn out beautifully.

Repaired Rooftop Doors in Montclair

3A board president in a downtown building, in Montclair, contacted us about broken doors that led to their roof top deck door.

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.

Handicap Entrance Door

We suggested Von Duprin 33 series heavy duty rim mounted panic bar, and pull trim. We also installed a HES heavy duty electric strike.
