Detex Outdoor System Secures Garden Center
For garden center gates, restaurant patios, lumberyards, or building doors that at times stand open, the Detex Outdoor Area System offers security without concern about hardware deterioration from exposure.
Certain retail applications require a combination of components, and the Outdoor Area System features a range of hardware designed for those needs. In addition, the system is scalable for more complex application requirements. Retail customers can select the exact combinations of components that suit their particular application and know that they will integrate easily with each other and function well in rain, snow and heat.
Outdoor Area System components include Detex weatherized delayed egress hardware to prevent shoppers from slipping out with merchandise; access control devices that allow entry from an outside courtyard with a keypad or card reader; and door-propped alarms that produce an audible warning when a door is being propped or held open.
“Retailers can put together a system that keeps their premises secure in harsh environments,”said Ken Kuehler, National Accounts Manager at Detex. “Our weatherized components can take the elements without fail.”

100th Anniversary Commemorative Padlocks Available
American Lock is producing a series of 100th Anniversary logo stamped solid steel padlocks. Anyone placing an order will receive the commemorative models.
American Lock Company founder John Junkunc invented the world’s first keyless dial combination padlock in 1912. He soon bought American Cylinder Co., which eventually became American Lock and is operated today by Master Lock Company. American Lock is getting a jump on the next 100 years, announcing a commemorative program for locksmiths that recognizes the first century of innovative achievements.
Long acknowledged as “The Locksmith’s Lock” for its industrial grade security products, American Lock is producing a series of 100th Anniversary logo stamped solid steel padlocks. Anyone placing an order will receive the commemorative models.
Production of the popular A700, A2010, A5260, A5200 and A5100 padlock families, including all shackle and keying options, is now underway for the program. It began shipping last month and will run through October 2013. All items ordered during this period will be manufactured with the Anniversary logo lock bodies.
“There is a high level of excitement about our milestone anniversary, and this was especially true at this year’s ALOA Expo in Las Vegas. With this program, we wanted to do something special for the locksmiths who have supported American Lock over the years,” said Michele Meierhofer, director of marketing - Security Products.
“Any locksmith will tell you that American Lock® Solid Body Padlocks are built to last, providing the highest security under physical attack and in the harshest conditions. There is tremendous interest in American Lock products and we believe locksmiths will want to share a piece of history by being involved in this program.”
The five series being offered in the promotion are the perfect choice for the toughest conditions. The A700, A2010, A5260, A5200, and A5100 endured rigorous testing and represent American Lock’s storied history of manufacturing high quality products that exceed commercial industry standards. Designed with solid steel bodies, boron shackles, rekeyable five- and six-pin brass cylinders and dual ball bearing locking mechanisms that resist picking, pulling and prying, these padlocks offer many other significant benefits.
American Lock Solid Body Padlocks are available with patented, state-of-the-art BumpStop® Advanced Cylinder Technology that is designed to resist bump attacks. The patented Edge™ Key Control system uses an exclusive key and cylinder design with an additional locking feature to create numerous one-of-a-kind virtual keyways, allowing all operating keys to be unique to a specific facility. And Weatherbuilt™ padlock protection covers for the A5260 and A5200 series help maintain smooth operation by keeping dirt and debris out of the keyway and internal components.
