Ideal Security is a 3rd generation family-owned company, based in Montreal, Canada.

Started in 1956 by Jack Jospe, for much of our history we were a prime manufacturer with 2 factories. In the early 1980’s we employed over 200 people at our various locations, always based in the borough of Lasalle. At the time, we were one of only three manufacturers of storm and screen door hardware in North America. In the Mid 2010's, as the last North American manufacturer of storm door hardware, Ideal discontinued manufacturing locally.

Today we are a  hardware developer (we like to think of ourselves as innovators) and a distributor of:

  • Storm and screen door hardware (OEM and replacement)

  • Replacement garage door hardware

  • Specialty window and sliding door hardware

  • Miscellaneous builders’ hardware

  • A small DIY home security program

In late 2019, we launched two new brands to accommodate two new lines: IDEAL PRO and IDEAL BNZ.

IDEAL PRO is a line dedicated to painters and contractors. Under this brand, you can find Ladder-Aide, Ideal Pro Tool Bag and Ladder Carriers.

IDEAL BNZ is a high-quality storage program for small and medium parts.
