ARCHITECTURAL IRON DESIGNS,
INC. (AIDI) LAUNCHES NEW BRAND
Architectural Iron Designs, Inc. (AIDI),
a premier supplier of ornamental and architectural metals, gate hardware, and metal
finishes, has launched their new brand.
"We have updated our branding because
we wanted those within our industry to

years, the company has grown from selling
a small range of steel forgings to a national
supplier, offering a full range of forgings,

ASSA ABLOY ELECTRONIC SECURITY
HARDWARE INTRODUCES A
STRONGER, ECO-FRIENDLY SERIES
OF INTELLIGENT MAGNALOCKS
In January, ASSA ABLOY Electronic
Security Hardware introduced the
Securitron M680E Series Magnalock with
EcoMag technology. Delivering unsurpassed
intelligence, style and convenience, this new
series has an increased holding strength of
1,200 lbs and is eco-friendly, with an average
power draw as low as 60mA at 24V, allowing
for use of smaller backup batteries and longer wire runs of thinner wire. This change
in power represents a total reduced energy
consumption of up to 80 percent over the
previous Securitron M680 series.
"Our team is constantly looking for new
ways to take our products to the next level,"
said David Corbin, senior product manager,
ASSA ABLOY. "We knew it was important
for the next iteration of the Securitron M680
series to be stronger as well as eco-friendly.
Throughout the design phase we worked
to ensure that every feature would add
something to the series, even going as far
as considering throw-away items like using
biodegradable cornstarch in the packaging.
The result was a lock with great benefits for
architects, installers and integrators."

gate hardware and metal finishes. To reflect
this, it has rebranded the company as AIDI
with the new logo.
To assist with the branding launch,
there is a new product catalog available,
which reflects an array of quality products from the premier manufacturers AIDI
represents. The Grande Forge collection
from France is of unparalleled quality.
The forgings from RikFer and Indital represent the best of old world Italian ironwork. The INOX and Feeney CableRail
system provides stylish modern options.

The DuraGates cantilever hardware from
Comunello, Italy, is the most technologically advanced sliding gate hardware in the
industry. Vinylast is the highest quality
paint for steel. BFT and FAAC manufacture the sleekest and most reliable gate
automation.
AIDI is confident that you will find its
catalog to be an excellent source for all your
architectural metal needs and an invaluable
sales tool.

Another unique feature is a new strike
plate mounting template that ensures strike
alignment upon installation, making for an
easier and less time-consuming installation.
As with the previous series of magnalocks, the Securitron M680E series has
optional, integrated features such as passive infrared motion detector, Securitron
BondSTAT bond sensor, Door Position
Switch and door prop sensing. As standard
features, the Securitron M680E series offers
configurable LED, auto-relock timer, tamper
monitoring as well as MagnaCare lifetime
replacement coverage.
Increased holding force, advanced intelligence and decreased power consumption,
all offered at the same price point as the
previous series, the new Securitron M680E
Series Magnalock with EcoMag technology
is the most advanced maglock on the market.
