Bommer Logo


For 124 years, Bommer Industries, Inc. has been a pioneering force in the door hardware industry. Since founder Lornez Bommer invented the first single acting spring hinge in 1876 and the first double acting unit four years later, Bommer Industries has grown but never abandoned its foundation in the spring hinge market.

Bommer also developed a line of sophisticated floor closers but ceased production of them about 30 years ago. NEDC purchased Bommer’s remaining inventory of closers and repair parts but they, too, have journeyed into obsolescence. Should you have an old Bommer door closer, call NEDC. Most Bommer units were identical in size and shape to Rixson closers and are easily replaced.

NEDC stocks Bommer’s 3000, 4000 and 7000 series spring hinges and pivots. If you’re not quite sure which Bommer product you have, call our sales team and we’ll help you identify the hinge—even if it’s nearly 100 years old.

Dorma Logo


It’s not surprising that Dorma is the largest manufacturer of door closers in the world but many are taken aback that the worldwide giant is still a family owned business.

For 85 years, the Dorma Group (including American Device) has been a technological leader in door hardware in 130 countries. In the United States, the Dorma Group purchased the old Reading Door Closer factory in Reamstown, Pennsylvania turning it into a state of the art production facility.

Dorma’s overhead concealed RTS 88 and floor concealed BTS 80 closers maintain a strong presence in the glass door market while their various surface closers such as the 640, 7600, 7800 and 7900 can be readily found on aluminum doors across the country. Dorma also boasts new versions of the American Device 4000 & 6000 (now called 5000 & 9000) and specialty glass doors under their DormaGlas division in Maryland.

HES Logo


For 30 years HES has been developing and marketing some of the finest quality, most innovative electric strikes the hardware world has ever seen. But it was their induction into the ASSA ABLOY group that catapulted them to top of both the mainstream and specialized electronic security market.

The HES 1006 is regarded as the strongest electric strike on the market tested to exceed 3000 pounds in strength and rated for 2 million cycles. With 27 interchangeable face plates, the 1006 is also the industry's most versatile, user friendly electric strike. HES also offers the low profile 4500 (fire rated) and 5000 series strikes and the adjustable 5200 series.

But most of the attention today seems focused on the Genesis 9600, the first completely surface mounted electric strike. The 9600 features an internally mounted solenoid and two independently operated stainless steel locking mechanisms. Imagine a Grade 1 electric strike that works with a standard 3/4 pullman latch and requires no cuts to the jamb prior to installation. Hes did.

Kawneer Logo


Widely regarded as the largest and perhaps finest manufacturer of aluminum doors and frames in the world, Kawneer’s aesthetic styling and technological innovations keep them at the cutting edge of today’s competitive market.

Founded in 1906, the Norcross, Georgia giant is perhaps best known in the door repair market for their overhead concealed door closers. The M1, invented in 1950, gave way to the M2 and finally the M3 (better known as the ‘Husky’) in 1975. The Husky dominated the COC market until its discontinuation in 1999 and was one of the finest closers of its type ever made. NEDC still repairs the Husky and stocks all the various parts related to it.

Kawneer’s innovation didn’t stop with the door closer. The concealed ’Paneline’ exit device ushered in new architectural standards while the ‘Panic Guard’ offered an improved dimension of security to crossbar-style devices.

Larco Logo


Long before computers and motion sensors changed the industry forever, carpets or 'mats' both actuated and provided safety for automatic doors. In fact, many leaders in the automatic door community still maintain that floor mounted carpets are the safest means of controlling full speed automatic doors. That's why Larco offers carpets for just about any automatic door need and still offers sizes that allow replacement of older Stanley, Dor-o-matic, Keane-Monroe and R&K systems.

In addition to their full complement of carpets, Larco also has a full line of mouldings and dovetails to fit virtually any carpet ever made as well as an extensive selection of guide rails, finger guards and other products to make sure automatic entrances fully comply with or exceed AAADM standards.

When you think of Largo, think of NEDC.

LCN Logo


Bearing the initials of door closer pioneer Lewis C. Norton, LCN sets the quality standard for all modern day units. The crown jewel in Ingersoll Rand’s door closer empire, LCN was built on a reputation of quality, technology and a belief that ‘one size doesn’t fit all’.

Although LCN does make universal door closer to address today’s market needs, they still offer handed, sized units designed to function in specific applications. The ‘Smoothee’ series (4110, 4010, 4020 and 4030) still claims top honors nearly 40 years after their advent.

What truly sets LCN apart from the rest is their commitment to research and development. LCN’s Sentronic line of fire/life safety closers has been carefully honed over the last 20 years to become an industry standard. LCN also puts the same technological supremacy to work in their Auto Equalizer line of handicapped accessible power operators. LCN’s engineering department can also devise special templates for applications as common as swing clear hinges and as complex as Mosler Safes.

LCN’s newest entry, the 1370 Quest, is another example of their zeal to redefine door closer standards. The 1370 boasts a radical new design, easy installation and competitive pricing structure. NEDC stocks the Quest as well as the rest of the LCN closer line at the competitive prices you expect. NEDC’s technical service staff is well versed in LCN and will make sure you get the right closer, mounting plate and any other accessory the first time.

Marks Logo

Marks USA

They may not be a household name like many of their peers but Marks U.S.A. and their many and various locksets are well known in some of the most punishing environments in the country.

Marks began production of commercial and residential locksets in 1977 but in 1989 created the Custom Lockset Division. This group dedicated themselves to creating special locks that could withstand use and damage that would make any of their competitors cringe. The result were locksets that became ‘no substitute’ standards for the New York City Board of Education, New York State Housing Authority, Chicago Housing Authority and the Los Angeles Unified School District to name but a few.

Proudly manufacturing in the U.S.A., Marks can accommodate any locking needs and at a price to keep you competitive.

When you think of Marks U-S-A, think of New England Door Closer.

Marray Logo


Among their many technological innovations, Marray boasts the only two wire transfer hinge capable of handling in 16 amp inrush from a Von Duprin EL device solenoid. With Marray, there’s no need to buy more expensive four and six wire hinges and ‘double’ or ‘triple’ up on the wiring. This not only saves money but simplifies the interphase process and eliminates clogging in already tight frames, doors and door loops.

Marray also offers transfer hinges in four and ten wire versions for hardware that requires the extra leads. All wires are Teflon coated and, in the unlikely event of breakage or damage, are factory repairable.

When you think of Marray, think of New England Door Closer.

McKinney Logo


For 135 years, McKinney has been an industry leader and innovator in the commercial grade hinge and pivot market.

Manufacturing out of Scranton, Pennsylvania, McKinney is part of the Assa-Abloy hardware group along with Curries, Graham and Sargent. Collectively the four are known as the Essex Total Openings People.

McKinney’s many pioneering efforts included oil-impregnated bearings which have been proven to greatly extend the life of bearing hinges. These are offered as a standard feature on McKinney’s bearing hinges and has set them apart from other manufacturers. McKinney offers two, three and five knuckle hinges in a wide variety of mounting applications in addition to radius corner hinges and slotted ‘Slip In’ hinges for the aluminum/glass door market.

National Door Controls Logo

National Door Controls

Overhead concealed and floor closers were an industry standard for decades. But with the rise of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the demise of certain concealed closers, National Door Controls was born.

NDC conversion kits allow you to convert an existing overhead concealed or floor closer to a newer surface mounted closer without removal of the existing unit. Doors that have rusty 50 year-old floor closers which have slammed for years can be quickly and safely brought up to today’s standards as can discontinued, leaky overhead concealed closers.

NDC's patented design allows for conversion of virtually every type of concealed closer from today to days gone by. When budget, ADA or time itself necessitates a concealed closer conversion, accept nothing less than NDC.

When you think of NDC, think of New England Door Closer.

NEE Logo

New England Entrances

If automatic doors are your game, then New England Entrances can surely be one of your most valuable players.

Based in Cheshire, Connecticut, NEE makes the finest guard rails in the automatic entrance industry.

Norton Logo


The name literally means ‘door closer’. For nearly a century, Norton has been a worldwide leader in the production of closers for virtually every segment of the door and hardware market.

Norton is the door closer flagship for the Yale Security Group (which also includes Yale, Corbin, Russwin and Rixson) and is prepared to lead the hardware giant into the next century as well.

The familiar 1600 series closer has become a standard fixture in the American market due to its impeccable service record, versatility and ease of use. The closer is usually supplied with Kawneer aluminum doors and frames and has thus become a Norton juggernaut. The closer offers ADA compliance at budget prices and now, with a new and improved cover, offers enhanced architectural benefits as well.

In addition to the 1600, Norton also offers the slim 8000 series and the heavy duty 7000 series as well as electromechanical life/safety closers, overhead concealed closers, automatic and high security closers.

Norton was also a pioneer of the ‘shock-absorbing’ door closer arm which eliminates the need for supplemental holders and stops. The Unitrol and CloserPlus arm series are available as options for the 1600, 7000 and 8000 closers and can greatly prolong the life of a high traffic entrance.

NEDC stocks a comprehensive line of Norton closers and components at the industry’s best prices and also effects repairs to Norton closers of current vintage and those of year’s past.

When you think of Norton, think of NEDC.

Pemko Logo


Pemko could probably be happy being one of the world’s largest manufacturers of thresholds and weatherstripping—but evolution has been the key to their success and they’re not about to stop now.

Yes, Pemko offers a complete line of saddle thresholds, ADA ramps and brush weatherstripping but has taken each to the next level. Pemko’s innovative line of ADA compliant rubber ramps offer superior slip resistance in addition to portability. Rubber ramps can be picked up and moved from temporary entrances to permanent ones .

Pemko has also developed an extensive line of intumescent life safety ‘Hot Smoke Seal’, a graphite seal that expands and fills voids when heat reaches 400 degrees. To compliment the product line, Pemko has also offers pressure sensitive smoke, fire, draft and sound seals in a variety of applications and colors.

While dedication to innovation and technology keeps Pemko on the cutting edge, their high quality line of thresholds, commercial weatherstrips, astragals and continuous hinges are their cornerstone and foundation.

NEDC stocks a full line of Pemko thresholds and weatherbrushes in a variety of lengths and finishes in addition to the PemkoHinge, a geared continuous hinge unlike any on the market today. PemkoHinge boasts a 20% thicker extrusion at the critical stress points and anodizes all hinges after the machining process. This assures the machined aluminum surfaces that come in contact with the bearings have a smoother harder surface and reduce premature wear.

Power Access Logo

Power Access

Long before ADA became the buzzword in the door and hardware industry, Power Access of Collinsville, Connecticut was producing automatic door openers for the disabled.

The beauty of the Power Access 4000 operator has been and continues to be their simplicity. Unlike many of today’s high-priced, overblown operators, the Power Access 4000 still does what it does best—open the door. And open it on a budget.

The 4000 is not attached to the door. It’s a header mounted unit that features an arm and wheel which glide along the top of the door face, gently pushing it open. A standard surface mounted (or even concealed) closer provides hydraulic control. This design allows traffic flow from either side of the door without having to activate the operator, saving on wear and tear.

Power Access units are also virtually maintenance free and are ideal for universities, homes, apartments and extended care facilities.

NEDC stocks the Power Access operators, parts and the many and various actuation devices, both hard-wired and wireless.

Zero Logo

Zero International

Normally, zero means nothing–unless you’re talking about Zero International of Bronx, New York. Actually, the name does mean ‘nothing’. In 1924, two Hungarian immigrants started out with ‘nothing’ and so named their company Zero.

But the ensuing 75 years have seen the small company become one of the industry’s greats. Manufacturers of thresholds and weatherstripping, Zero products are regarded by many as the finest of their type in production today. Zero thresholds are distinguished by their heavy gauge and durability and are used in some of the most punishing applications imaginable. Zero also makes thresholds for unique applications often overlooked by other manufacturers.

Zero also applies their heavy duty approach to the various astragals, weatherstrips and door bottoms that round out their vast product line. They offer intumescent fire and smoke seals in addition to hard to find weatherstripping for windows and heavy duty sliding and overhead doors.
