Door Hardware Targets Improved Security and Aesthetics
INOX, creator of decorative hardware and door locks for more than 25 years introduces the Art Deco Series offers a complete collection of products to transform utilitarian door locks, card readers and other hardware into custom-created, Jazz Age-style designs.
This new series includes trims, chassis and locks with a full array of entry sets, levers, escutcheons, deadbolts, door stops, door pulls, cabinet pulls and pocket sliding door hardware. The products are made from heavy-duty brass and include a commercial-grade, spring-assisted chassis for ease of operation and extreme durability.
“Most door hardware for today’s high-end hotels offer very limited trim designs that are stylistically out of sync with the rest of the property, especially electronic card readers,” said Jeff Howes, President of INOX. “We developed the Art Deco Series to address this issue, and since we manufacture all aspects of our products, we are the only company that is able to retrofit nearly all existing hardware with these beautiful Art Deco designs.”
The Art Deco Series can retrofit up to 90 percent of newer baseline card readers, and is also compatible on doors with emergency exit push bars. In addition, INOX uses heavy-duty magnets instead of unsightly screws to offer a clean aesthetic, eliminating the need for snap-on assemblies or rubber gaskets that wear out and decay over time.
This door hardware suite captures the essence of the Jazz Age with a contemporary sensibility and is available in Aged Brass, Polished Nickel and Flat Black finishes. While particularly applicable in hospitality, the sophisticated designs of the Art Deco Series are also available for commercial and residential use.
