Why has My Commercial Door Lock Stopped Working?
As with most fixes, commercial door lock repair relies on an accurate diagnosis of the problem. This can be very difficult if not impossible to do yourself if you are unfamiliar with basic lock mechanisms, let alone the specific mechanics of your commercial lock. Commercial door locks can be extremely complex, especially electronic, exit devices and storefront locks. The reason your door lock isn’t working may also have nothing to do with the lock itself and rater only require an adjustment to the door strike plate for example. On top of everything else, there is also the risk of user error that can escalate the problem. It is often best to call a locksmith rather than try to do address lock repairs or replacement yourself.
Commercial Lock Must Be Open
Before commercial door lock repair or replacement can commence, the door needs to be opened. If the damage to the lock has created an issue where the door won’t close, this is not a problem but if the broken commercial lock has resulted in a business lockout, it is obviously more complicated. If the lock is catastrophically broken, the locksmith may need to drill the lock open which usually results in replacement rather than repair.
Commercial Door Lock Repair
Commercial door lock repair is the process of moving an existing lock from a state of not working to full functionality without purchasing a brand new lock. This could be as simple as using a door lock lubricant or replacing out several internal components such as the cylinder or springs. It is a good idea to service the door lock regardless as this can help prevent future door lock problems.
Commercial Door Lock Replacement
