Adams Rite instruments for over 100 years has been the Aluminum Hardware Authority, known for its innovative designs and high-quality products.
When the Maximum Security (MS) Lock® launched in 1955, it quickly became the industry standard and even now remains the dominant locking solution for narrow stile aluminum openings. Today Adams Rite designs, manufactures, and markets door and door hardware products to the commercial, industrial and institutional building construction industry and is recognized as one of the leading suppliers in its area of specialization.
Our product lines include electromechanical deadlocks and deadlatches, electric strikes and exit devices for exterior and interior doors as well as integrated door assemblies. Our products are designed to complement the clean lines of modern doors, while at the same time meeting safety and access codes.
With the launch of a variety of new and innovative electrified access control products for aluminum and glass doors, that not only perform beyond expectations but are also aesthetically pleasing in any application, it’s clear that Adams Rite is still a pioneering voice in the industry.
