Detex Newsletter
Have we got an IDEA for you!

Detex's redesigned website launched in early 2014 with many upgrades, expansions and changes. The new site is designed to provide easy access not only to life safety and security door hardware, but to integrated door security systems, and safety and security risk management products. With fewer clicks, visitors can reach their specific areas of interest.

The biggest upgrade to the website is the addition of the Idea Center. The Idea Center is designed for end users, architects and other visitors that are unfamiliar with door hardware and Detex. The Idea Center is intended to function as a guide to help connect the best products with specific applications.

Navigating the Idea Center by industry

Detex has added a list of most common industries. Customers simply select the industry their project is in or related to. Current industries include:

Category pages

Each category includes a 3D building image specific to the industry with labels that illustrates how various Detex products and systems can be used within each application.

Riser Diagrams

Once an application has been decided upon, click on the corresponding name in the legend and a list of products and systems for that application will be provided. When one is clicked on, it will lead to riser diagrams (shown above) that display examples of how the hardware looks. Each of these links then lead to a corresponding product information page.
