Southern Folger is the result of the merger of two leading detention manufacturers: Southern Steel and Folger Adam.
Southern Steel was founded in 1897 with a consistent philosophy of uncompromising quality and outstanding service. With new innovations in product design and application, Southern Steel has patented technology that is used in justice facilities all over the world. From remarkable beginnings as a metal fabricator and sliding door manufacturer over 100 years ago, Southern Steel products have a reputation and experience level "Forged in Steel."
The concept of quality has always been a central theme for Folger Adam products since William J. Adam founded Adam Steel and Wire Works in Joliet, Illinois. Folger Adam entered the business in 1905, and established a company focused on the production of high-security equipment. Today, Folger Adam products have the technology to secure any size facility. Architects and professional hardware consultants internationally specify Folger Adam locks, hardware and sliding door locking devices for detention applications.
Southern Folger equipment and workmanship can be found in thousands of facilities around the world, and Southern Folger detention equipment is specified by design professionals that demand only the best.
