Adams Rite Europe Limited was formed in the UK in 1975 and is located in Swanley, Kent. It is the wholly owned subsidiary of Adams Rite Manufacturing, which was formed in California in 1946 and is still located there today. Adams Rite were the originators of the swing bolt mechanism, developed to cope with locking narrow stile aluminium doors, which remains the main method of locking on the vast majority of commercial aluminium doors. Today Adams Rite Europe Limited supplies customers with a range of main locking and access control products plus panic exit devices and door controls.

During 2002 Adams Rite was able to develop further product sectors with the acquisition of Markar Products Inc in the USA, which manufactures a range of continuous hinges, metal lite kits and louvres, and Safeguard Doors in the UK, which manufactures timber security, ballistic and blast resistant doors.

Adams Rite Manufacturing Company and Adams Rite Europe both comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2000

The 900 Series Panic Exit Device range in surface, mortice and concealed rod versions suitable for use on timber, aluminium and steel door materials. A stylish horizontal push bar which conforms to the mandatory legislation standard BS EN 1125:1997+A1:2001; to allow safe and effective escape through a doorway with minimum effort. Plus the 4591 Series Paddle Handle range which in ‘push’ mode conforms to the mandatory legislation standard BS EN 179:1998+A1:2001; which can be used on doors where, in emergency situations, users are familiar with the emergency exit and its hardware and therefore a panic situation is unlikely to develop.

A range of access control locking products to facilitate remote access and exit of most aluminum, timber and steel doors. The range comprises electric strikes, direct pull magnets, solenoid bolts, the Armlock 1354 mini electro shearmagnet and the MS Maglock, which combines the convenience of the electromagnetic lock with the strength of a mechanical lock, all in a compact size.
