DH Pace strives to deliver meaningful solutions to its customers that meet their needs by incorporating five key elements: Professional Employees, Broad Product Offering, Customized Solutions, Reliable Service and Lifecycle Building Management.


In early 2020, the pandemic arrived in the United States. The choices made on how to deal with this unprecedented crisis not only affected the health care system they also created major ripple effects that are having a significant effect on the economy almost three years later. To reduce the spread of the virus, the government shut down large parts of the economy and flooded the market with trillions of dollars in benefit programs and financial market support intended to cushion the economic damage. As the effect of the virus moderated and the economy began to re-open, material shortages became a major problem. As supply chain lead times improved, inflation did not moderate as many experts predicted. The government responded to this persistently higher inflation by raising interest rates significantly which has placed major stress on the financial markets as well as the banking and real estate industries

with effects reverberating across all sectors of the economy. Only time will tell if the government’s choice of action to control inflation will help facilitate a softer landing or be a contributing factor in a deeper economic slowdown than was necessary. What we can say for certain is that the economic effects of how we chose to deal with the pandemic will be with us for years to come. Let’s hope that lessons have been learned that will result in better outcomes in any future crisis. Throughout these pandemic years, the DH Pace Company continued to serve its customers faithfully, worked hard to protect employee health and supported those in need through expanded charitable activities. I am thankful for the spirit our employees demonstrated and proud of what they accomplished despite the difficult circumstances.


GROWING Over the last three years, DH Pace company sales have increased $262 million, or 39%, to $940 million. HIRING DH Pace ended 2022 with 3,094 employees. Over the past six years, the Company has created more than 1,400 net new jobs and increased the total employee count by 84%. INVESTING

A year later, Overhead Door Company of Kansas City™ (1927) and a few years later the Overhead Door Company of Atlanta™ (1935) opened for business. In 1973, the operation of these three entities consolidated and became divisions of DH Pace Company, Inc. In 1995, the Company began selling commercial products and services under the DH Pace brand name in select markets. In 2003, the Systems Integration division was formed to provide access control, video surveillance, intrusion alarm and parking control system products and services.

Physical security barriers are a critical component to an overall security plan. In conjunction with electronic security systems and guard service programs, these barriers form a layered security plan. They can be designed for different levels of security such as: crowd control, deterrence, detection and prevention. Hostile vehicle mitigation or vehicle traffic control can also be accomplished through revenue parking systems, access control systems and vehicle barricades such as bollards, wedges and barrier arm gates. DH Pace offers a complete range of design, installation, maintenance and repair services for all types of physical security barriers. Electronic Security: Access Control and Systems Integration Products A well-designed and integrated security system is the cornerstone of an effective security plan. To work properly, these systems must be closely coordinated with the access points and traffic patterns in and around the facility. This makes coordination and integration with entry doors, physical security barriers, automatic doors and vehicle control systems essential. This includes compliance with fire, life safety, accessibility and other relevant code requirements. DH Pace also offers specialized systems including but not limited to: asset tracking, visitor management and ballistic detection.

As the largest moving object in a home, a garage door can be a huge convenience for daily life.

PROBLEM A major manufacturer was planning a new multi-building assembly plant complex that required a wide range of specialty doors and material handling equipment. SOLUTION DH Pace worked with the architect and owner through the bid process to provide input on how to update the requirements to better fit the wide variety of applications throughout the complex. This played a significant role in DH Pace being awarded the project. The project included 11 buildings containing 108 high performance doors, 8 coiling doors and 65 dock positions. Docks were outfitted with hydraulic levelers, highly customized master control panels, dock shelters and vehicle restraints. Industrial high-performance doors outfitted with custom controllers were installed to allow rapid opening and closing and frequent use throughout the facility. The doors were provided in custom colors to match the overall aesthetic of the building. Rolling fire doors, insulated service doors and air curtains completed the project. The project required close coordination between the owner, architect, general contractor, and other subcontractors due to the nature of the project and over 268 project changes.

PROBLEM A performing arts center needed a large custom door to expand their theater space to include an indoor/outdoor performance area. SOLUTION DH Pace worked with the theater, architect, and general contractor to design a solution for this unique application. DH Pace installed a 40-foot wide and 18-foot high aluminum bi-fold door. When open, the large door opening provides the necessary access to use the outside stage for performances. When closed, the door secures the building with a glass window providing light to the interior of the space.

PROBLEM A national retailer was building a new distribution center to support their stores and needed to outfit the facility with a variety of doors and dock equipment. SOLUTION DH Pace provided a single source solution for the owner, architect, and general contractor to furnish and install a wide range of opening products throughout the facility. In total, DH Pace provided the following equipment. • Dock Equipment: 185 dock positions including 26 vertical-storing, 85 mechanical pit, and 74 mechanical edge-of-dock levelers; safety equipment including 185 LED communication dock lights, wheel chocks, bumpers, and control panels. The communication lights provide high visibility red/green flashing lights for simple, clear communication between dock workers and truck drivers. This reduces the chance of accidents such as truck drivers pulling away before loading/unloading is complete. • Upward-acting sectional breakout doors: 161 impactable doors with a 2” thick insulated foam core panel designed to prevent damage to the door panels and

track when struck by forklifts or other equipment. • Traditional Sectional Doors: 7 large ramp doors.

• Insulated Vertical Doors: 27 vertical-acting sectional cold storage doors with operators to provide superior energy benefits over traditional doors. The doors feature 48” high panels with 4” thick insulation for an R-23 value and thermal- break track. • High Speed Doors: 2 high performance doors with opening speeds of up to 50” per second. • Rolling Fire Doors: 6 coiling fire doors with operators. The customer is now operating an 800,000 square foot state-of-the-art distribution facility.

PROBLEM A manufacturer suffered significant business disruption and economic losses when a winter storm caused the pipes in their boiler room to freeze. To prevent future incidents, they needed the ability to close off a 30 foot x 28 foot ventilation wall during cold weather. SOLUTION The DH Pace team assessed the situation and assisted the customer in evaluating several different options. Due to the large size of the opening and the need to close the opening quickly, a power operated custom rolling steel door was selected. The door was fabricated and installed on the exterior of the ventilation wall with a heavy- duty operator to allow for quick and safe operation. To add security, the operator can only be activated by authorized personnel using a key switch. The customer is very happy with the product and the installation of the door. It took care of all the worries they had with weather at this location and allows for the ventilation wall to be open as much as possible.

PROBLEM A university needed to upgrade their access control system to improve security and convenience. The campus police and systems administration teams also needed the new access system to integrate with the existing student enrollment and badging systems. SOLUTION DH Pace worked with key university stakeholders to define system requirements, including the IT department on software integration issues. Close collaboration between DH Pace, the selected suppliers and several university departments was critical in successfully designing a solution that would deliver the level of integration, security, and convenience necessary to meet their ambitious goals for the system. DH Pace installed the new access control system at four separate campus locations consisting of over 450 card readers. The new access system was integrated into the university’s badging, human resources, and enrollment software to allow staff to efficiently onboard new students and grant them access to the appropriate classrooms, common areas and dormitories. The system also permits authorized users to reserve study and conference rooms. Finally, the new access system allowed administrators to lock down the buildings in the event of a critical incident.








DH Pace also upgraded numerous pedestrian entry doors and upward-acting doors as part of the project.

Today, the university enjoys the benefits of an integrated access control system which enhances user convenience and plays an important role in the increased security across all four campuses.

PROBLEM A business dealing with the public was concerned about the possibility of a shooter event at their facility. They wanted to improve security at the facility to better protect employees while not impeding their ability to serve customers efficiently or making the new security features an inconvenience. SOLUTION DH Pace worked with the customer to design a solution that met these requirements. A new transaction window was installed with bullet-resistant glass in compliance with UL-752 standards. The walls around the transaction windows were reinforced with bullet-resistant material to provide additional protection for employees. A baffle design was used which offered the best sound transmission available for bullet- resistant barriers with no visual obstructions. A recessed stainless steel deal tray was added to allow for passing of documents under the window.

PROBLEM A national company needed to significantly increase the physical security when vehicles were entering or leaving their property at seven facilities across the United States. SOLUTION DH Pace worked with the customer to understand daily traffic patterns and security concerns at each location. The final design included high-security barrier arm gates capable of handling the anticipated traffic flow, and safety equipment tailored to fit the application - with the strength to withstand the impact from a 15,000 lb vehicle moving up to 50 mph. Due to DH Pace’s national installation and service capabilities, DH Pace was able to serve as a single-source provider and deliver the systems on a turn-key basis for all locations. DH Pace provided a dedicated project management team to coordinate the design and installation of 38 new gate systems including the foundations, control wiring, equipment installation, programming, and customer training.



With the installation complete, the new system is an added layer of protection for employees should an emergency arise.


Today, the customer enjoys the increased peace of mind knowing this new security is in place at each of these facilities.

PROBLEM An elementary school was building a new courtyard outside of their library. They needed more convenient access from the building but only had large windows adjacent to the new courtyard space. SOLUTION DH Pace surveyed the site and proposed replacing one of the window systems with a new door system and sidewalk for convenient access to the patio. A custom aluminum frame was installed with a set of textured fiberglass doors in the school’s branded colors. The doors were designed to accommodate high traffic and be able to withstand the weather and abuse common in these types of applications. The doors featured FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) face sheets which are scuff, scratch and fade resistant. The stiles and rails were built from extruded aluminum alloy. Electrified hardware was used to integrate the openings into the school’s access control system while also utilizing a quiet retraction technology to minimize noise in the library when the doors closed. Today, the students enjoy convenient access to the courtyard through an opening that is both durable and integrated into the customer’s security system. The opening has also enhanced the exterior of the building with the vibrant blue color.

INTRO A restaurant owner wanted to create a new indoor/outdoor flex space to expand their dining area. This new space needed to comply with the emergency egress building code requirements. SOLUTION DH Pace consulted with the owner to formulate a solution that met both owner and building code requirements. A full-view aluminum upward-acting sectional door was installed to create the indoor/outdoor dining space. A new entry door with a transom was added next to the upward acting door to comply with the emergency egress requirements. Both doors were provided in a dark bronze finish to match the existing exterior of the building. The new space provides a more upscale dining environment for patrons of the restaurant using doors that blend in with the existing building and meet egress requirements to provide a safer environment.
