Schlage celebrates 100 years

Schlage, the door hardware and security brand, is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

From the first push-button lock pioneered by Walter Schlage in 1920 to best-in-class smart lock solutions of today, Schlage has established a century-long legacy.

During the recent 2020 International Builder’s Show in Las Vegas, Schlage paid homage to its 100-year milestone with historic displays of the brand's evolution. The manufacturer said that its centennial celebration is a testament to Schlage's ability to remain a pioneer in the ever-changing consumer landscape by crafting the industry's most reliable, durable and advanced door hardware seen to date.

"For the last 100 years, Schlage has provided safety, simplicity and style to more than 40 million homes and businesses around the globe," said David Ilardi, general manager at Allegion Home, makers of Schlage Locks. "Our passion for door hardware is rooted in security and steeped in innovation, and we are thrilled to celebrate a century of providing consumers with seamless access where they live, work and visit."

Products from Schlage include the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt, Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt, and the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt among others.

At IBS, Schlage featured seven new Schlage Custom Door Hardware styles and black stainless finish, all of which combine premium style with universally functional locks, allowing residential homeowners to change from a doorknob to a lever and a traditional look to a modern look.

Schalage is a brand of Allegion, which sells products sold in more than 130 countries.
