Detex Outdoor Area System Secures Garden Center

Oct. 30, 2012
Detex Corporation offers a life safety and security hardware system designed specifically for retail buildings that have areas exposed to the weather.

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.”
