A licensed Architectural Hardware Consultant (AHC) is on staff for consultation for writing specifications for all types of projects. Controlled access/electronic hardware requirements can also be laid out in consultation with your electrical engineer. We have written all types of specifications for all types of projects including, but not limited to commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, churches, and fine residences.


Let us do the work for you! We provide complementary quick and accurate cost analysis of doors, frames, hardware, toilet partitions, and toilet room accessories using state of the art software that promptly estimates and details your project. We are pleased to estimate any size project from major commercial buildings to minor tenant renovations.

Project Management

We will prepare and detail all hollow metal/wood door and frame shop drawings and hardware schedules, and offer advice every step of the way. We will point out errors and inconsistencies before they become problems at the jobsite. Material will be ordered promptly and on time. Budgets will be met, and change orders processed promptly so that the project can be completed on time and under budget.

Code Compliance

We have both an attorney and an AHC on staff to answer any questions you may have regarding the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101), the Fire Code (NFPA 80), and the ADA code.

Locksmith Services

We have established and implemented many new masterkey systems over the years, and have kept careful key records for all systems that we have established. We have also repaired and extended many existing systems established by others, and we keep a large inventory of blanks and parts to meet all your keying requirements.
