(May 2011, New Braunfels, Texas) â€“ Detex Corporation, an industry leader in life safety and security hardware for commercial properties, has designed and engineered the next generation of multi-point locking security door hardware. Built for maximum strength, the new 230X hardware features heavy-duty, three-bolt construction that provides a uniquely high level of toughness against attempted intrusion.
Ideal for back doors requiring both panic hardware and high-level protection from break-ins, the 230X is designed to put more deadbolt deeper into the frame than other locks in the category. Connecting rods are made of continuous solid metal, rather than the hollow-rod/cable construction common in the category.
â€œThis is a new generation of security for commercial applications,â€ said Detex National Accounts Manager Ken Kuehler. â€œThe industry has told us that in order for a multi-point lock to be reliable it must be easy to install. Our patented, paperless template makes this installation easy and assures a securely locked door every time.â€
Exclusive to Detex, the 230X is life safety and code compliant, and functions both as panic hardware and as the strongest hardware of its type in the industry. It has been engineered and constructed with top quality components to ensure the reliable performance for which Detex products are known â€“ as well as to give businesses the best possible protection against back door break-ins.
For more than a century, Detex has earned the trust of security professionals who rely on Detex products for loss prevention. A USA company, Detex designs, manufactures, markets and ships products around the world from New Braunfels, Texas. Detex is known internationally for life safety and security door hardware, loss prevention and architectural hardware, integrated door security systems, and guard tour verification.
