In a Door Jamb? Access Hardware Supply Has an App for That

March 8, 2012
Free “Retrofit Installation iPad App” now available

San Leandro, Calif. –Access Hardware Supply, a leading national wholesale distributor of access control equipment and mechanical and electronic locking hardware, debuts the “Retrofit Installation iPad App.”

“This is going to revolutionize the way doors needing to be retrofitted are specced in the field. No more scribbling your specs on notepads. No more wondering if you’re choosing the right hardware. No cost overruns. No mistakes,” says John Ream, vice president of sales and operations.

This free app is available for download through your iPad. When you take it with you on-site, you are prompted to fill in the all aspects of the door opening (including whether or not the current door sticks or jams) and all potential hardware necessary. So, there’s no forgetting any little detail requiring a return visit. Once the specs are filled in, you can send them directly to an expert at Access Hardware Supply.

You can even submit a photo of the door and current hardware - which comes in handy when there’s a “problem door.” Your AHS associate will then get back to you recommending every piece of hardware needed along with total cost based upon your budget.

As Bill Smoyer, Western Regional Sales Manager for AHS puts it, “We’re always looking for products to make life easier for our customers, and now we’ve come up with one of our own.”
