Tech Tip     


Detex has many products, applicable to a wide variety of doors and gates.  If you have a challenging life safety or security door hardware application, contact Detex to help you design an Integrated Door Security System that can be customized to fit your needs.  Referred to as EasyKits, Detex has developed many Integrated Door Security Systems, to fit applications such as Access Controlled Doors (ACD), Automatically Operated Doors (AOD), Electrically Dogged Doors (ED), and Weatherized Delayed Egress (WDE).


To help with the design process, Detex developed an informative EasyKit questionnaire.  Designed for all types of applications, the EasyKit questionnaire insures all the necessary components are included and every detail discussed.  Filling out the Detex EasyKit questionnaire is a great first step when you start designing your next Custom Detex Integrated Door Security System, providing Detex with a better understanding of how you want your custom system to look and function.
