How Schlage does door hardware right with design and security in mind

With the advancement of new technologies, door hardware has become far more sophisticated and capable than ever before. Technology has enabled new features, higher efficiency and better control within even the simplest of products. Beyond these attributes, products communicate more than in the past, informing us of status, activity and need for maintenance.

New technology is more than added features and capabilities though. It changes the way we interact with products. Our design team at Schlage focuses on the needs and desires of the customer first to drive technological solutions. We seek to provide options that result in great experiences while retaining aesthetics that align with unique homes and interiors.

Here’s why Schlage should be your partner in providing artfully designed, modern hardware and smart lock solutions.

About Schlage

Walter Schlage’s first patent was issued in 1909, and by 1923 he was producing a new type of lock – the tubular lock. Today the tubular lock has become commonplace in homes across the country. Over the past 100 years, the Schlage Company has expanded beyond that initial design to offer a portfolio of security products for the home, including deadbolts, handle sets, door knockers, kickplates and most recently, Schlage smart lock solutions.

Today, Schlage is a part of Allegion, a publicly traded company providing security and safety solutions across the globe. In addition to our portfolio of residential products, Schlage has a full line of commercial-grade products found in industrial, commercial and institutional buildings. Our breadth of experience in security, along with our culture of innovation, is embedded in all the products we make.
