Fire Doors & Hardware
By definition, a fire rated door is an entryway or door manufactured with the purpose to resist spreading fire if any part of your commercial structure catches fire. For example, if a fire breaks out in your kitchen, with fire rated doors in place, and with all doors closed, the fire will take longer to spread to the dining room and break room. We specialize in delivering a diverse selection of fire doors, frames and hardware such as doorknobs, on time and within your budget.
Door Closers & Operators
Some of the most important devices on your door, door closers and operators make sure your door closes and opens properly, complies with ADA and NFPA codes and improves traffic flow.

Our promise is to deliver mechanical and electro-mechanical solutions that are built to last.
Emergency Exit Hardware
Emergency exit hardware can be applied to doors that are used to exit a building during an emergency, which swing in the direction in which occupants are exiting (normally outward). These devices latch automatically and allow for one-motion egress from the building. AKL services and repairs Emergency Egress Doors and all components. Your doors are the only thing standing between you and the outside world--they need to operate properly to keep you safe.
