More About Rixson

RIXSON Specialty Door Controls offers customized solutions for the most challenging design requirements. It is the leading North American provider of concealed closers, pivots and mechanical/electromechanical door holders. QualifiedHardware.com maintains one of the largest Rixson inventories in the country.

In 1900, Oscar Rixson, a Finnish architect, started a manufacturing company in Chicago, Illinois. His first products were surface door closers, along with window & sash hardware. As time went on, Rixson and his engineers developed products that were concealed so that the beauty of buildings equipped with Rixson products would shine through. The late 1960's was a period of growth for the Rixson family business, with the acquisition of a company that manufactured door holding devices. This line of products has evolved into the Checkmate line of today. In the mid-seventies, the RIXSON company purchased another innovative business, Firemark, to meet the requirements of new standards for fire and life-safety. RIXSON's Smok-Chek series was the first closer/holder combination product in the hardware industry.

Our inventory includes Rixson concealed floor closers, overhead closers, Smok-Cheks, pivots & pivot sets, gate closers, overhead stops, magnetic holders and specialty floor closers for shallow floor conditions. With an extensive inventory of floor closer bodies, cement cases, cover plates, arms, tools, kits and all of the necessary parts and accessories to make new installations or renovations and repairs simple - QualifiedHardware.com is the place to go when you need a Rixson product.
