Certain healthcare applications require a combination of components to meet the needs of specific applications. Detex features a range of hardware designed specifically for healthcare uses. In addition, Detex provides complete systems that efficiently meet more complex application requirements. Customers can select the exact components that suit a certain application and know that the components will integrate easily with each other and function well as a system.

Detex Swing Door System components include the AO19 automatic door opener that can operate light or heavy doors in low energy applications and has controls mounted and pre-wired in one unit, as well as electrified Advantex panic hardware, keypads and card readers. These can be used for interior doors where the general public can access a wall button or authorized personnel can use a keypad or card reader, or for exterior doors that open with a wall button for assisted entry during the day and restricted entry after hours.

“Detex is the only manufacturer that integrates all these hardware components,” said Ken Kuehler, National Accounts Manager at Detex. “We even offer preconfigured EasyKits that install easily with any hardware already in place, such as door prop alarms, camera setups, or roaming-alert systems used in assisted living facilities.”
