Schlage Welcomes Style and Reinvigorates Door Hardware Category at 2015 International Builders' Show

Combining Style, Innovation and Security, Schlage Unveils Products That Allow Homeowners to Showcase Their Personalities, While Making Life More Convenient

CARMEL, Ind.--Schlage, creator of the strongest, most intelligent and stylishly relevant door hardware, is debuting several new door hardware styles and finishes, as well as its newest keyless lock innovation, the Schlage Sense system, at the 2015 International Builders' Show. The brand's sleek new styles, the Northbrook Lever, Upland Trim, Collins Trim, and two original finishes, Satin Brass and Polished Nickel, are opening the door to thousands of customized design and finish options that reflect a homeowner's individual style.

As the style and technology leader in door hardware, Schlage will showcase its innovative products at the show taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., January 20 - 22, 2015. A brand of Allegion plc (NYSE:ALLE), Schlage will feature its products at Booth #C3532.

"Schlage knows that personal style is constantly evolving and that our consumers are always seeking satisfying new ways to express themselves through their home's d©cor," said Steve Down, Allegion Residential Leader. "It's not just grand overtures that contribute to self-expression, but finer details and finishing touches like relevant door hardware that pull a look together. Schlage's latest styles continue to reflect a variety of taste preferences, giving homeowners what they need to make bold style statements without sacrificing quality."

Schlage Style, Where It Matters Most

Schlage offers thousands of timeless door hardware combinations with unique designs and finishes that also combine traditional, transitional and contemporary styles to fit each home's unique aesthetic. The brand's decorative hardware-including the new Northbrook Lever, Upland Trim and Collins Trim-are the accents that design and construction professionals prefer, because they fit a homeowner's style and stand the test of time:

*The Northbrook Lever is imaginative and sophisticated, offering a new view on minimalist design.
*The Upland Trim offers a fresh take on simplistic design by focusing on the beauty of its contemporary shape alone.
*The strong lines and square shape of the Collins Trim embodies refined elegance and provides a distinct minimalist appeal.
*These products join the recently launched Sacramento Lever, Bower Knob, and Greyson Trim designs, which will also be showcased at the event.

Schlage is also expanding its extensive finish offerings-which include the recently-released Matte Black finish- with the introduction of Satin Brass and Polished Nickel. The Satin Brass finish is the epitome of modern elegance and is quickly becoming one of the most popular choices for the home as a modern upgrade to Bright Brass. With subtle hints of gold that are bold without being over the top, this finish has the perfect amount of understated style. The Polished Nickel finish is a glamorous designer finish that's adaptability allows it to blend into nearly any d©cor without being overlooked. Inspired by the timeless sophistication of the Victorian Era, it is made from solid nickel and can change its color and appearance with a simple change of lighting.

Schlage products are crafted and tested to ensure durability and performance, providing the highest quality and exceeding industry standards. Schlage's decorative door hardware is designed to fit most residential doors, feature reversible levers, with an easy, three step, out-of-the-box installation and a lifetime limited mechanical and finish warranty.

The Schlage Sense System - Intelligence at Your Fingertips

Schlage also recently announced its latest keyless lock innovation, the Schlage Sense system. Designed to work with Apple HomeKit technology, the Schlage Sense system provides consumers with key-free convenience. HomeKit technology provides advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the Schlage Sense lock and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. HomeKit also lets consumers control their Schlage Sense lock with their voice using Siri. The stylishly advanced lock gives homeowners the choice and flexibility of entering their home using the lock's illuminated touchscreen or with their iPhone.

The Schlage Sense system has the ability to manage and schedule up to 30 codes at the same time through a dedicated, easy-to-use app, which offers an additional layer of key-free convenience. The Schlage Sense app allows individuals to create and delete access codes, check on lock status and view activity, as well as update settings and check battery life without requiring residents to connect to an existing home automation system or pay a monthly subscription charge.

The new lock joins the brand's suite of keyless electronic products, which are among the top choices for homeowners, remodelers, builders, property managers and security integrators. The brand also recently released the Schlage Touch lock, which provides easy, key-free access, and the ability to store 19 unique access codes to provide homeowners with exceptional convenience. In addition, the award-winning Schlage Connect lock puts homeowners in control by allowing them to be constantly connected to their front door from anywhere in the world via leading Z-Wave compatible home automation systems. The product boasts full integration with leading home automation and monitored security systems, including 2Gig by Linear, ADT,, Nexia Home Intelligence, ELAN, Honeywell, Leviton, Iris, Wink, Mios, Staples Connect and Vera.
