Flake Releases Full-Line Automotive Catalog

H.L. Flake Security Hardware announces the release of its full line Automotive Catalog. The 290-page catalog features more than 4,000 products from 28 manufacturers, containing large photographs and detailed descriptions of automotive security products.

“We have strived to have fully stocked shelves; now locksmiths will know exactly what inventory is on those shelves,” said Dan Floeck, H.L. Flake’s owner and CEO, about the new full-line catalog.

The catalog is formatted for easy product lookup. Items are arranged by category, then alphanumerically by item number within each manufacturer. H.L. Flake’s price is shown on each item.

“Now that we are putting complete catalogs into our customer’s hands, the quarterly catalogs will focus even more on introducing items that are new to the market, while still showing the latest price on the most popular items,” commented Travis Howell, marketing manager for H.L. Flake.

The Automotive catalog is the first of four catalogs intended to be collected in a binder that will comprise H.L. Flake’s complete full-line catalog. Catalogs are available as an electronic download in PDF format, in addition to the traditional printed version.

Multi-Point Panic Hardware For Maximum Security

Detex Corporation offers a new maximum security life safety door hardware system designed for retail. Installed on doors that require higher levels of security, these extra-tough hardware systems are scalable to provide the level of security that matches a retailer’s specific needs.

Certain maximum security and retail applications require a combination of components, and Detex features a range of hardware designed specifically for the job. In addition, Detex provides complete systems that efficiently meet more complex application requirements. Retail customers can select the exact combination of components that suit their particular application and know that the components will integrate easily with each other and function well as a system.

At the core of the system, and built to withstand the most aggressive attempts to break through rear doors, the 230X Maximum Locking Strength Multi-Point Panic Hardware is engineered with an extreme-duty, triple-bolt design that withstands 16,000 pounds of pull force. Single and double-bolt and weatherized models are available. Additional components include V50 and 20 Series Vertical Rod Exit Devices for dependably tough protection on double doors, as well as Detex Door-Propped Alarms, battery-powered or wired, designed to sound a warning when exterior doors are propped open by personnel.

“Considering the configuration of your retail set-up, Detex can provide a choice of security hardware systems that are very powerful deterrents,” said Ken Kuehler, national accounts manager at Detex. “Once we talk to you about your requirements, we can help you tailor a combination of hardware that works together to function dependably in a panic situation, while raising your protection level in high risk areas.”
