DETEX has its origins in a predecessor company established back in the 1870's. The original company - A. A. Newman, manufactured and sold stationary watchclocks – used for managing guard tours.
Detex remained principally a manufacturer and distributor of Watchman's Clock Systems until 1963, when it introduced a new line of security hardware products and entered the builder's hardware field. These products are designed primarily for use in the control of exits in industrial, commercial, institutional and educational buildings. QualifiedHardware.com carries an extensive line of DETEX products to satisfy the diverse needs of these facilities.
The DETEX product line includes the classic ECL-230D and ECL-600 exit control locks, the V40 & V50 Value Series exit devices with an alarm option for securing exterior doors, and the EAX family of door alarms that includes the EAX-500 and EAX-2500.
QualifiedHardware.com is proud to carry DETEX locks, alarms and accessories with a comprehensive inventory at competitive prices. QualifiedHardware.com offers free shipping within the Continental US for all DETEX products.
