Value-Added Products and Services

You know Anderson Lock excels at creating, installing, and maintaining Master Key Systems…but do you know that we are Chicago’s premier provider of commercial doors and total opening security services?

Here are 10 door security solutions you won’t find at big box stores and won’t get from national hardware distributors:

1. Pre-Installed Hardware

Hinges, door closers, exit devices, locks, electrified hardware and flat goods are installed onto doors prior to being shipped to job sites. Experienced installers troubleshoot the hardware as it is installed, often catching, and fixing, manufacturing or product defects. This process provides hassle-free installations, helps meet deadlines, and saves money by reducing labor at job sites.

2.  Boxed4U Program

Our new Boxed4U option delivers everything you need for each door, conveniently labeled and individually packaged. Boxed4U increases job site organization; assures faster unpacking and installation times and lowers the risk of damage or loss. It is an ideal way to control and streamline inventory and installation efficiency.
