In 1900, Oscar C. Rixson, a Finnish architect, started a manufacturing company in Chicago, Illinois. His first products were surface door closers, window and sash hardware and any products to add quality to the incredible building boom that was occurring at the time. Eventually, RIXSON developed products that were concealed to let the beauty of the buildings shine through.
In the 1970’s, RIXSON’s Smok-Chek series was the first closer/holder combination in the hardware industry. The next generation of these products is still protecting lives and property.
Now an ASSA ABLOY Group company, RIXSON Specialty Door Controls offers customized solutions for challenging design requirements. They are the leading North American provider of concealed closers, pivots and mechanical/electromechanical door holders.
