Owning or managing a business comes with a high level of responsibility, one of the most important being the physical security of the premises, staff and guests. Today First Lock & Security Technologies will outlines some of the most common reasons our valued commercial clients call us to maintain or improve the security of their brick and mortar business.
Rekey a Commercial Door Lock
When you own a business, building security is vital. You have an important responsibility to secure equipment, furniture, product inventory and customer information as well as staff and patrons. Rekeying your business locks, whether after a significant event such as a move to a new building, employee termination, loss of keys, theft occurs or just periodically, can ease security concerns and help you regain key control. When locksmiths rekey a lock, they change the inside of the lock to work with a new key. This ensures only authorized people will have keys to your business and any old keys will no longer work. It is much quicker and less expensive than a full lock replacement.
Master Key System
Master key systems are used by businesses that have different access needs — such as rooms and areas within office buildings, schools, apartment complexes for example. A master key system allows business owners or managers to control who goes where within the building. The highest level master key opens all locks where lower level keys only open specific locks. Professional locksmiths have the industry knowledge and skills with master key systems to keep your key count manageable and your building secure.
Replace Commercial Locks
There are many great reasons to replace your commercial locks. Perhaps you are or concerned about the quality of your locks and are looking for a more secure option? Maybe you have recently remodeled and want new locks to match the new look of the space? You may have recently suffered a break-in or break-in attempt that damaged your existing locks. Whatever the reason for your business lock replacement, First Lock & Security Technologies can expertly replace them to meet your security needs.
Fix Broken Door Locks
Just like residential locks, over time and frequent use, commercial locks can malfunction and wear out. Handles become loose, locks get stiff and keys don’t seem to turn as well as they once did. With so many employees, vendors, customers and guests coming in and out on a daily basis, normal wear and tear to door locks and handles is amplified. Visitors may push too hard on your doors, a key can break off in a lock, a potential break-in can cause lock damage or perhaps the key just stopped working. Fortunately, many lock problems can be corrected or repaired before they become so serious that you need a lock replacement. Rather than attempting to fix your broken locks yourself, it’s best to call a professionally trained locksmith to take care of your lock repair needs.
Locked Out of Business Premises
Getting locked out of your office can greatly interrupt workflow and hinder employee productivity. An emergency locksmith can get you back into your business premises quickly without damaging your locks or requiring the need to replace them. Again, DIY locksmith work is never recommended as it will likely result in larger, more costly locksmith problems!
