Guardian Electric Division is a Key Supplier for the Security Industry
What does a drive-thru window at your favorite fast-food restaurant have in common with a garage door? What does a hotel room locking system have in common with an ATM machine?
The answer is they all use Kelco Industry solenoids from our Guardian Electric division in their closing and locking mechanisms.
“People interact with our solenoids all the time without knowing it,” said Kelco CEO Kevin Kelly. “Every time someone locks their garage door or gate, Kelco’s solenoids are in the automated locking and security systems.”
“The next time you order a burger, thank Kelco Industries as you’re handed your food from the window that uses our solenoids,” joked Kelly. “And if you go inside to order, our solenoids are in the push mechanism on the door.”
Kelco’s solenoids also address security needs in vending machines, gaming equipment, medicine disbursement systems, office equipment, access panels and other electronic systems. We are also used in systems that secure door locks and airplane landing systems in the Aerospace and Military sectors.
All our Frame, Tubular, Laminated, DC Latching, Spring Kit, and Custom Solenoids are manufactured in America.
