A sales representative was in a customer’s office recently with our 34K Series Standalone lock. The customer was reviewing the brochure when he noted one of the additional features was a “fuzzy credential entry available” and asked what it was.
Next week, several members of the Hager Family and team members will head to Baltimore for the annual DHI ConNextions show.
For the Hager team, this show is all about connecting with our customers. We want to hear what’s new in their lives and businesses; collaborate our efforts in order to grow their sales; and, of course, showcase our new products. In the last year, we’ve released the following products:
- 3300 Series Grade 2 Tubular Locks
- 4 Amp and 6 Amp Power Supplies
- 34K Standalone Lock
- Door Prop Alarm
- Onboard Delayed Egress for our 4501 & 4601 Exit Devices
- Hospitality Transition Thresholds
We will also have demonstrations with our HS4 Electronic Access Control products including the newest communication platform BLUEnet. We are especially excited by BLUEnet’s ability to provide a real-time (within 4 seconds) lock communication, keeping people safer in an active shooter situation.
If you’d like to attend the show but haven’t purchased a pass yet, we have complimentary VIP Exhibit Hall Passes available. Just click on this link and in the Promo Code box type hagevip.
We look forward to seeing you!
We’ve had a busy first quarter and we wanted to share our most recent product announcements in case you missed any!

Last week several Hager team members descended upon Austin, Texas for CONSTRUCT. As noted in previous blog posts CONSTRUCT is the annual education and exhibition for the Construction Specifiers Institute, better known as CSI (not the one on TV).
This time next week several of our team members will be making their way to Austin, Texas for CONSTRUCT. If you haven’t registered yet, there is still time. If you’re on the fence we wrote about the benefits a few weeks ago which you can read here.

If you work in the St. Louis area and are looking for a local CSI chapter, the Continuing Education Programs was just published by the Greater St. Louis CSI chapter. Besides continuing education credits with programs like Design Guidelines for the Visual Environment and Sustainability in Construction Administration, there will also be a tour of the Arch River Grounds on October 19th. Of course, the annual Golf Classic, being held on September 21st, is always a fun time. Find out more information on the Greater St. Louis CSI Chapter’s new website here.
As you can see Hager is committed to the mission of CSI. We work hard to make sure our specifications are clear, concise and fair. Our goal is to provide door hardware that meets code while supporting the architect and end user in their goal of a safe and secure building.
We hope to see you next week!
It is a fact of life that we can’t get away from germs, but there are ways to control the spread of them.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our new line of touchless actuators. For use with our 8400 & 8200 Series low energy power operators, the touchless actuators employ capacitance technology similar to smart devices. They have an adjustable sensing range from 0″-4″ and a LED illumination which increases plate visibility.
Besides attending the DHI ConNextions show, Dana has been traveling extensively, meeting Hager sales representatives in the Eastern territory and almost all of the distributors. He finally had a chance to chat via phone and discuss his goals and ideas for his new role.
First, a little background. For 15 plus years Dana worked in the HVAC industry in residential and commercial distribution with Lennox and Traine (an Ingersoll Rand company). The last position Dana held before joining Hager was Sales Director – Residential Solutions – Southeast Region for Trane. He led teams in the Southeast region of the United States and generated $52M revenue growth with a 7% boost in new business development.
Here is my interview with Dana:
What lead you to Hager?
IR and Trane went through some mid-year changes so I had to either look for another role or leave the company. I decided to look for a new challenge outside of the HVAC industry.
