Both homeowners and business owners who insist on higher security locks and keys to protect their possessions and personal safety can rely on Serv-U Locksmiths to fill this need. Medeco high security locks are pick resistant, bump proof, drill resistant, and stronger than the average locks found at local hardware stores. Medeco high security locks also provide key control by only allowing authorized persons to have keys duplicated. Serv-U Locksmiths can install Medeco locks on your home or business.
Combination locks are ideal for locked doors that must be accessed by several people. For example, an employee entrance to a retail store, or medication storage room in a nursing home. There are many different types of combination locks, some that are mechanical and some that require batteries. The combinations on these types of locks are easily changed by the end user.
One of the most important, yet often overlooked pieces of door hardware is the door closer. Without a properly functioning door closer, even the most elaborate lock cannot secure a door. Selecting the correct door closer for a particular door is extremely important. Some issues to consider when choosing a door closer are the following: size and weight of the door, frequency of use of the door, location of the door, and the finish. Door closers are available with several options such as back checks, for doors in windy locations, and hold opens for doors that need to have a means of being temporarily held open.
The installation of a door opener allows handicapped individuals to access buildings with a touch of a button. These openers aid in making public buildings compliant with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations. Businesses that install door openers attract more customers by making their stores accessible to the elderly and handicapped.
Heavy Duty Door Hardware
Door hardware is rated Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3. A commercial building should use Grade 1 door hardware for high use doors and Grade 2 door hardware for less use doors. Grade 3 door hardware should only be used on residential buildings.
There are several manufacturers of commercial door hardware; we recommend the following:
- Marks Hardware - Grade 1 and Grade 2 entry levers
- Arrow Lock - Grade 1 deadbolts
- Medeco - high security, key restricted cylinders
- Von Duprin - panic bars
- LCN - door closers
- Gyro Tech - door openers
- Trine - electric strikes
- Dyna Lock - mag locks
Bathroom partitions are found in most public restrooms. Serv-U Locksmiths sell and install bathroom partitions for new installations as well as for replacements for existing partitions that may be broken, dirty, or rusty. Partitions are available in metal, plastic, and stainless steel. The metal and plastic partitions are available in several colors including colors that are graffiti resistant. Bathroom partition replacement hardware, for most brands of partitions, is also available.
Folding gates can be used to block a doorway, secure a loading dock, or cover a window. Folding gates can also be portable to temporarily close off an area such as an aisle in a store or a hallway in a school. Serv-U Locksmiths sell and install all types of folding gates.
Access Control Systems
Access control is one of the major requests of our commercial customers. Access control is the use of door hardware to limit only authorized persons to enter a building or area of a building and only at preset days and times. The door hardware can record the name, date and the time the person entered the particular area.
Access Control can be accomplished several ways and at different costs:
Medeco high security cylinders
- these cylinders use keys that are registered. Only authorized persons may have duplicates made.
- these locks have changeable pushbutton combinations that restrict entry to only those that know the correct combination.
- this technology can be found on stand-alone door locks or on card readers which are connected to an electric strike or mag lock. Both stand-alone locks and card readers have the option of audit trail which would record the name of the person entering the area, and the date and time of the entry.
Electric Strikes & Mag Locks
Electric strikes and mag locks allow for the unlocking of a door from a remote location. For instance, a front door to an office building may stay locked for security reasons, however, when a visitor arrives, a button within the office can be pressed to unlock the door and allow the visitor entrance. This type of situation works best with an intercom or video system so the office personnel can identify the visitor prior to being buzzed in.
An intercom or video entry system allows the occupants of a building to identify a visitor before unlocking a door. These systems are relatively inexpensive and give the occupants the option whether or not to allow someone in. These systems are commonly found in schools, small offices, and jewelry stores.
High use doors that are out of alignment, either rubbing on the jamb or dragging on the ground, can be corrected by the installation of a continuous hinge. Store front doors commonly have worn hinges that produce a sagging door. Serv-U Locksmiths can install a continuous hinge which will solve this problem.
Wood or metal commercial doors are available for new construction or for replacement of existing doors. These doors are available with many options such as fire labels, insulation, and glass windows. Doors can be prepared by the manufacturer to accommodate door hardware such as panic bars and door closers, levers and deadbolts, or mortise locks. Serv-U Locksmiths can install any type of door and the necessary door hardware.
Weatherstripping is often overlooked on exterior doors resulting in loss of heat in the winter and loss of air conditioning in the summer. Weatherstripping a door is inexpensive and will save hundreds of dollars in utility bills. Serv-U Locksmiths can install weatherstripping on the top and both sides of the door and install a door sweep on the bottom of the door.
