Since 1948

About DoorKing

We Offer Solutions – not just products.

DoorKing, Inc. (we are also known as “DKS”) was established in 1948 and is one of the country's leading manufacturers of telephone entry systems, vehicular gate operators, parking control products and access control systems in the United States. Based in Inglewood, California since its beginning, DKS operates from seven buildings and is located less than 3-miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). These buildings include our corporate headquarters, manufacturing, engineering, sales & marketing, training, warehousing, and shipping and receiving facilities. Additionally, we maintain 10 outside sales offices located throughout the country.

DoorKing was the first company to use microprocessors and electronic magnetic limits in their vehicular gate and parking control operator designs. Our fail-safe entrapment prevention system was incorporated into our vehicular gate operators decades before entrapment protection became a part of the safety standard for vehicular gate operators. DKS gate operators have long been considered the safest vehicular gate operators on the market.

DoorKing has become a leader in the access control industry by offering our customers innovative products and by maintaining one of the best customer service departments in the industry. We don't just offer products - we offer solutions - complete with system design, technical support and training.

Before You Buy - Your safety is our primary concern.

Numerous web sites unaffiliated with DoorKing, Inc., now advertise DKS gate operators for sale. While the prices may seem attractive, there are more important factors to consider. Our concerns when buying from an unknown web site vendor include some of these following issues.

  • Buying vehicular gate operators from an unknown web site that offers no installation means that the customer becomes responsible for the proper design, installation and maintenance of the gate system.
  • DoorKing does not provide direct warranty support to end-users who have purchased our products direct from unaffiliated web vendors.  Many of these web vendors do not offer warranty support or any post-sale support.
  • Automated vehicular gate systems must be installed in accordance with the UL-325 and ASTM F2200 Safety Standards. Most lay persons are unaware of, or are not familiar with, these standards and do not realize the potential hazards associated with an incorrectly designed or installed system. If an automated vehicular gate system is not properly designed, installed, used and maintained, serious injuries or death can result.

Because of these reasons, and to maintain the highest level of consumer safety and customer support, DoorKing has chosen to market its products only to professional companies, who are licensed to sell, install and service vehicular gate operating systems and access control equipment. DoorKing currently has a network of over 2000 professional dealers, distributors and representatives nationwide.
