SEAS Teams Up With Trimco
The first half of 2022 led us on a path of uncertainty after dormakaba's announcement to divest its Mesker business at the end of the previous year. We were encouraged to learn that Mesker was being purchased by a partnership formed between the owners of Trimco and MMI, Mesker MBM LP.
During the transition of ownership it became evident that the Trimco and MMI principals are passionate about the industry, manufacturing high quality products and putting the customer first.
As we began sharing the latest chapter in the Mesker story with our distribution partners one thing became clear, Trimco's products and people have a well respected reputation in the marketplace.
With that knowledge, Raul and I are very excited to announce our representation agreement w...

Fire Door Inspection Solutions
As fire door inspections become more prevalent, facilities are looking for easy fire door inspection solutions.
The clearance or gap that exists between the door and frame is one of the checklist items on a fire door inspection. According to NFPA80, Section 6.3.17 and Section 188.8.131.52, the gap between the door and frame or between two leaves of a pair of doors cannot exceed ⅛", the gap between the bottom of the door and floor cannot exceed ¾".
Generally, if an opening exceeds these measurements, sometimes even by 1/16", the opening will fail the inspection and is required to be fixed within 60 days. This can be a costly and stressful situation.
One possible cause of an improper gap is sagging hinges. Most commercial doors are hung on 3 or 4 butt hin...
