4 Types of Commercial Locks To Consider

Posted on September 21, 2022 by A-1

Are you protecting your business as well as you can or should? Commercial security is important for all companies, but securing your business is becoming increasingly more important as businesses are seeing higher incidents of crime. The good news is that business owners can be proactive to minimize losses and protect their facilities.

One great place to start with commercial security is your locks. If you’re not using these four types of locks yet, here’s a little information about how each works to help you decide whether they make sense at your business or not.

  1. Commercial Strike

Whether traditional or electronic, your standard commercial lock will feature stronger security ratings than most standard residential locks. The strike fastening on the door projects the lock to secure the door and access can be customized. The features and options on commercial strike locks vary depending on type and manufacturer, so consider seeing your options in person and talking to a professional commercial locksmith for advice about the best lock option for you.

  1. Magnetic Locks

Magnetic locks (or electromagnetic, as they’re sometimes called) feature a unique emergency release capability and are ideal for interior locations. These locks are super durable, as they have no moving parts to wear down. Magnetic locks also offer the advantage of accommodating access controls.

  1. Keyless Entry

Thanks to advances in technology, there are a wide variety of keyless options available today—and many are more affordable than in the past. Entry options for these keyless commercial locks include remote controls, combination keypads, app-based controls, touchscreens and more. Whatever security level you want, a keyless entry lock can provide.

  1. Master Key Systems

Finally, master key systems are the pinnacle of building security and control. These can also vary in features and security levels depending on the system you choose. They range from simple, high-security deadbolts to digital deadbolts that only allow certain keys access depending on the time of day. If you’ve been looking for a way to control who has access to one or multiple rooms in your business, a master key system is the way to go.
