Company information

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.
