A commercial locksmith is required to maintain any company's security. Commercial locksmiths possess the necessary training and experience to mend locks and replace deadbolts with newer, more secure ones to keep your company protected. When a commercial locksmith repairs a deadbolt or one of the other lock mechanisms in your establishment, it is their responsibility to call you before completing work on your property. Here are several types of locks that a commercial locksmith might be called upon to repair:
Key duplication. Most keys are duplicated at different stations in public and private facilities. Because keys are hard to duplicate, locksmiths often require clients to first give them a key duplicate, which they then give to the person who needs the key. In this instance, the locksmith doesn't just make a new key for the job; he or she also makes a new copy of the existing key so it can be changed in its entirety, as well as affixing a decal to the existing key to identify it as the property of the company.
Desk locks. Many businesses have been hit hard by computer hackers who have gained access to company computers. Some of these hackers break into company databases and use their access to wipe out files and folders, delete data, and enter accounts and credit card information. Commercial locksmiths can easily make a duplicate key for your safe to protect against this type of burglary.
Deadbolt lock. A deadbolt lock is a common feature on residential locks. They are used to prevent forced entry into a property. Commercial locksmiths install a deadbolt lock on commercial doors in order to prevent burglars from simply kicking in a door to get into the business. If a burglar attempts a forced entry, the lock will be engaged and the deadbolt will lock them out. This will also prevent any employees from gaining access to the business's safe, should they need to retrieve any important items.
Combination lock. Some commercial locksmiths provide the services of a combination lock. These are often used on high-security areas, such as government buildings. If you do not want anybody but people working for your company to be able to enter your building, then a combination lock may be the perfect solution.
Access control panel. Often, commercial premises require access control, which is done with the use of a security guard or an alarm. In some cases, this access control is part of a tenant application or lease agreement. For more security measures, you can also hire a commercial locksmith to install access control panels that are locked with keys that are controlled by the business.
