PTI and SteelBlue Partner to Launch Tech-Forward Turnkey Self-Storage Solution Smart Latch and Roll-Up Door Combo Drives Automation, Increases Unit Security
PTI Security Systems, part of ASSA ABLOY and the global leader in self-storage access control technologies, and SteelBlue, innovative manufacturer of roll-up door and hallway systems, are combining their newest patent-pending designs: PTI’s cutting-edge ProEdge Bluetooth smart latch and SteelBlue’s state-of-the-art 9530 Series roll-up door will be available to operators as a two-in-one solution in the first quarter of 2024.
With increasing demand for automation among self-storage consumers, and a stronger desire for enhanced unit security, operators need to leverage technology to keep and attract tenants. Pairing the newest offerings from PTI Security Systems and SteelBlue Building Components makes available both companies’ expertise and latest innovations in a best-in-format solution for any self-storage design.
“PTI’s goal is to provide operators with the most door-level security options to fit their individual needs, should it be retrofitting existing facilities, or building new,” said Ryan Stewart, PTI’s VP of Sales. “By partnering with a proven innovator like SteelBlue, our customers can feel confident they are choosing the right partners and the right total solution for their operation.”
The manufacturing of PTI’s ProEdge electromechanical Bluetooth latch onto SteelBlue’s unit doors before delivery to job sites streamlines both installation and configuration, offering greater convenience for operators as they work to meet and exceed tenant security needs.
“At SteelBlue, we continue to look for innovative ways to provide our customers with best-in-class turn-key solutions, and that is exactly what we are doing by partnering with PTI,” said Rich Saginaw, President and CEO of SteelBlue. “Combining our two products to deliver a complete ‘packaged solution’ is a game changer for the self-storage industry.”
The ProEdge latch features next-gen BLE Bluetooth technology, coupled with EasyCode connectivity. Tenants have easier unit access at greater range. The battery-powered latch supports quick installation and service with a secure four-bolt design and left- or right-hand orientation.
The 9530 Series Roll-Up Door features a high-quality industry standard seamed panel profile with a robust patent-pending hood designed to reinforce and protect the door from damage. The improvements to the shorter guide and wear stripes combined with a symmetrical headstop and hood plate allow for a quieter operation and a faster installation.
The two companies will debut their combined solution at SSA in Las Vegas September 7-8, 2023. See demonstrations at Booth #441 (PTI) and booth #613 (SteelBlue).
