Jan. 8, 2014
Special design features make installation easy and quick in commercial applications

New Braunfels,Texas -- January 8, 2014 -- Detex Corporation has become a prime resource for retrofit hardware to replace commercial door exit hardware devices that are worn and unreliable. Ease of installation, reduced maintenance, and a reputation for dependability are the reasons cited by building maintenance managers for selecting Detex Advantex hardware to bring their properties up to date.

Special design features make retrofitting with Advantex quick and simple:
1. Multiple mounting plates are available that allow retrofitting over existing mounting holes in hardware from five other major manufacturers (either using or
covering the holes). No paper templates are needed.
2. Use of the mounting plate allows installation by one person, cutting down on time and labor expense.
3. The spring-loaded tail piece requires no cutting or sizing, so that outside trim installation is easy.

Engineered to last, with top-quality materials and stamped stainless steel covers,
Advantex hardware ensures extended life on doors that are subject to high use and high abuse. Maintenance is significantly reduced with easy cylinder service, vandal-resistant levers, ramped end caps that resist damage and no-hooking pushpads.

"Advantex carries a 10-year warranty,” said Ken Kuehler, Director of Sales and Marketing at Detex. “Chances are excellent that it’s going to hold up much better and longer than the hardware you have now.”

For more than a century, Detex has earned the trust of architects and owners who rely on Detex products for the life safety and security of people and property. A USA company, Detex designs, manufactures, markets and ships products from New Braunfels, Texas. Detex Corporation is known internationally for life safety and security door hardware, loss prevention and architectural hardware, integrated door security systems, and guard
tour verification.
