Owning and operating a commercial business comes with a long list of responsibilities, including keeping the building secure and your employees safe from harm. After all, the success of your business relies on your ability to satisfy your customer base and keep your operation running smoothly. The security of your building is one of the items that should never be taken for granted. A cost-effective option to keep your building secure is to have your premises rekeyed regularly, especially if you have a high staff turnover or have recently let an employee go. Rekeying is not only cost-effective, but it can also save you valuable time.
What Happens when You Rekey a Lock?
Rekeying is an economical way to address the safety concerns of your exterior locks and involves modifying the pins within the locking cylinder rather than replacing the entire lock. Once your lock has been rekeyed, your old set of keys will be rendered useless, and you will be given a new set of keys. By regularly changing the sequence of the pins within the cylinder, you are stopping anyone from gaining access to the property who may have an original set of keys.
Benefits of Rekeying Your Lock
There are several benefits to rekeying the locks on your commercial property, including:
Improves Security: When it comes to securing your premises, rekeying your locks makes it much more difficult for someone to gain access to the building. The bottom line is that you have no idea how many keys may be floating around. Even if you are the first occupant, the reality is that building management, builders, craftsmen, and cleaning personnel may all have a set of keys in their possession. Rekeying gives you complete control over who has access to your property.
Customization: When rekeying your locks, First Lock & Security Technologies can provide complete flexibility to customize the way the locks are set up in order to add to the security factor even further.
Cost-effective: Rekeying is a cost-effective way to increase the security of your building because you can keep your existing door handles and lock hardware. Rekeying is particularly useful when you find yourself in the position of having to reexamine and rekey multiple locks. Lock hardware, especially designer locks, can be expensive.
Maintain Curb Appeal: If your commercial building has designer or older style locks that match the building’s exterior décor, rekeying is the perfect option as you can keep your building secure without affecting the curb appeal of the commercial premises.
