TriMark Unveils New Products at AUSA Winter Symposium

New Hampton, IA. – February 2009 – TriMark Manufacturing based in New Hampton, IA introduced several new products at the Association of the United States Army's 2009 Winter Symposium and Exposition February 25 – 27, 2009 in Ft Lauderdale FL.

While TriMark has attended this event in the past and has participated in various Symposium sponsored activities, this is the first year for creating an actual display for the Exposition itself. TriMark's Kevin Roths states, "Our involvement in the armored vehicle industry has really expanded just in the past year. We have new systems and products that have been developed specifically for this market and the only way to really show them off is in an exhibit format."

TriMark is taking this opportunity to introduce its COMMANDoor concept which will be featured in a complete and functioning door display. The door fully integrates mechanical blast locks and a primary FMVSS latch with a power-assist actuation and control system to open and close the door for those vehicles with very heavy doors. The inside control handle's unique 2-axis electromechanical design allows for simple and intuitive hand motions by the soldier to activate the open and close action of the door. Additionally, the door's power-assist components are modularized to fit in a compact space below the inside door cover.

One of the programs offered by TriMark that has gained a quick and appreciative acceptance in this industry is the availability of "kitted" door systems. These systems allow a purchaser to utilize a single product number to purchase everything that will be required in terms of access systems for that door.

TriMark will début a new product platform for the armored vehicle market consisting of new exterior door handles and a new internal linkage module, as well as announcing that they have the capability to design and manufacture door support hinges in various duty ratings.

The new HD Rotational L Handle expands the current TriGuard product offering of exterior and interior door handles. This robust L Handle features modular construction that allows for customization, including the use of light weight materials, without sacrificing strength. The handle also allows for the use of a padlock for security.
