Door Opening Problems Solved Faster

High traffic areas. Long installation times. Constant maintenance….common situations faced by installers and service personnel every day.

The RITE Door® by Adams Rite is an integrated door system that features pre-installed components, tough low-profile operating hardware and designer looks. Factory installed hardware allows for faster installations in the field, which can mean a savings of up to $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 per door opening. Maintenance time and frequency is also reduced.

The RITE Door is built for high traffic use, but its clean sight lines and range of finishes and options allows you to install code-compliant door openings that complement any application. For more information, go to www.adamsrite.com
