Sponsor Description


At Allegion, we help keep people safe and secure where they live, work and visit. With more than 25 brands sold in almost 130 countries across the globe, we specialize in security around the doorway and beyond: everything from residential and commercial locks, door closer and exit devices, steel doors and frames to access control and workforce productivity systems.

At the core of our $2 billion business is the knowledge and experience of the 9,500+ dedicated employees behind our brands. We help our customers navigate their toughest security challenges, and we help builders and property owners differentiate themselves by providing innovative and secure solutions. Operational excellence is a key part of what we do for our customers, and is a focus for our employees. Our trained specification writers and experts not only help our customers adhere to codes and standards – we help advocate for and raise those security standards in the first place, in markets around the world.

While mechanical hardware is the foundation of our business and will always be at the core of what we do, we recognize that the future of the security industry lies in addressing the needs of an increasingly connected world. Electronic solutions don’t replace our mechanical products – they make them more powerful. That’s why our core strength in mechanical security, when combined with digital, mobile and interconnected electronic solutions – and our expertise in style and design – makes us a leader in our markets.
