For 124 years, Bommer Industries, Inc.
has been a pioneering force in the door hardware industry.
Since founder Lornez Bommer invented the first single

Bommer also developed a line of sophisticated
floor closers but ceased production of them about 30
years ago. NEDC purchased Bommers remaining inventory

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.

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

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
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.

Normally, zero means nothingunless
youre 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 industrys
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.
