January 31, 2019 – Our first announcement in 2019 was to share our new TIPIT® Ligature-Resistant Hospital Tip product. Designed with safety in mind, the combination of the TIPIT® and our Roton® Continuous Geared Hinge provides a safe environment while meeting institutional requirements for preventing objects from being hung from the top of the hinge.

In that same announcement we also provided information on our newly designed Hospital Tip which provides a clean and safe environment.


February 5, 2019 – In February Hager announced that on April 1, 2019, we would be transitioning to a Motor Driven Electric Latch Retraction (MLR) and discontinue the Solenoid Driven Electric Latch Retraction (ELR). The new MLR is quieter and requires a lower inrush than other available technologies. Available with our 4500 and 4600 Series Exit Devices, it is also offered in a convenient field installation kit.


February 7, 2019 – The HS4 Electronic Access Control ProAccess SPACE Software released v5.3 . The new features include:

  • Support new formats for auto-assignment of keys

Salto ProAccess SPACE Software is a power web-based access control management tool that enables users to program access-time zones, manage different calendars, and view audit trails from each door.

February 7, 2019 – The new 8300 Series ADA Low Energy Operator was released for interior and exterior, single and paired door openings. It is non-handed and fire-rated. A perfect choice wherever ADA compliance is required.


June 11, 2019 – Building a bridge between BLUEnet gateways and locking hardware, the HS4 BLUEnet Repeater extends the perimeter to locks that may be out of normal signal range. The repeaters do not need to be wired to the BLUEnet gateway.

July 2, 2019 – Our team introduced two enhancements designed for our residential products. Fasteners will be included in rectangular packages which will make Hager bulk residential hinges easier to order, receive, stack, and manage. We have re-engineered our pallet design to reduce freight related claims. These changes will be implemented during the next three to six months.


July 16, 2019 – We announced our new summer stocking program highlighting our 3300 Series Grade 3 Lockset and 34K Series Standalone. Perfect for counter sales and upcoming projects! Check with your local sales representative for more details.
