Commercial buildings need better protection than the usual home-improvement store lock provides. If you’re looking for an experienced locksmith in Dallas that specializes in high security, look no further.
The National Crime Prevention Council reports that almost 2/3 of break-ins show no sign of forced entry While it’s not sure how many of those were just from doors or windows being left unlocked, the importance of high-security locking is clear. They’re critical for office and other commercial building protection. And it’s relatively inexpensive to go beyond the common standard.
A high security lock has extra-solid construction throughout, and often special features. Various manufacturer’s lines go beyond standard keys to special shapes, including 3-D characteristics. Even with all this it’s important to remain up to date. One plastic-key high security system was later discovered to be easily hacked. Let’s work together to keep your facilities truly secure.
Magnetic and Electronic Door Locks in Dallas
Magnetic door locks, also called electromagnetic or maglocks, use a powerful electro-magnet to control the bolt strongly enough to resist tampering. Common ratings are 300, 600, 1200, and 2000 pounds of holding force. Below 300 lbs is generally useless; 1200 lbs is adequate for most circumstances.
These types may include a key-card reader or key pad for code entry, and offer many additional advantages. A timed unlock means no problems with someone forgetting to re-lock. A magnetic mechanism is much simpler, rendering them much more rugged and damage resistant than mechanical locks.
There are two basic types — fail safe and fail secure. A fail-secure device will remain locked even during a power outage, securing your property for an essentially unlimited duration. A fail-safe device will unlock during a power failure. That’s desirable, and even required, for fire and smoke safety. They’re appropriate for emergency exits, but not critical security areas, and require careful selection and installation.
Electronic door locks are used on buzz-in type doors. They’re inexpensive and convenient, but provide lower levels of security. They’re also available in fail-safe and fail-secure versions. AC versions will “hum” when open, whereas DC versions are silent unless equipped with a buzzer.
Key pad combinations solve the problem of lost keys, and eliminate the costs of key distribution. They’re used primarily for stand-alone authorized entry, determining who can and who can’t access a particular area. Many models support as many as a hundred different users with a million or more possible combinations. Options include multi-attempt or timed lockout, one-time codes, and temporary lockout of selected users. A master code can be used to assign emergency, supervisory, temporary, and regular user codes.
We’re the Dallas experts in installing and maintaining keypad locks, ready to help you choose from countless options.
Dallas Master Key and Key Control Systems
A master key can permit access to all doors in a facility with a single key, which can be especially important in emergencies. That’s great for facility managers as well as owners, provided they’re thoroughly trustworthy. When that’s the case, a key control system is also called for. That’s a formal, organized way of controling access to the master and all other keys. A full system involves the physical keys, a secure key holding location, and documentation (who has authorization for what buildings and doors, key identification, what keys have been issued, and more). There should be no unauthorized undocumented access.
The basics seem simple, but implementing the details calls for a knowledgeable advisor, like 911-Locksmiths, to work with you and assure that only those authorized have access to keys and the opportunity for key duplication.
File Cabinet Locks
File cabinets are often a neglected part of business security. It’s good practice to periodically change the keying for to protect privacy and proprietary or sensitive information. Replacement file cabinet locks are usually brand-specific, so you’ll need a someone experienced in tracking town the exact part you need. Damaged locks and lost keys should be taken care of promptly.
Panic Bar Exit Devices
A panic bar (also called a crash bar, exit device, panic device, or push bar) allows anyone to quickly open a door from the inside in case of an emergency. They’re called panic or crush bars as in fires or other disasters people tend to panic at a secured exit, and often pile up against the door or even stampede.
They’re required by OSHA and building codes for public buildings for rooms with many occupants (such as assembly areas), for areas with hazardous materials or dangerous conditions as well as in healthcare and educational facilities. Various smoke, fire, and emergency regulations apply depending on the building size, usage, number of stories, occupancy levels, and type of occupancy.
In most cases you’ll want the push bar to be alarmed to prevent employees or others allowing entrance to unauthorized personnel. You’ll find a large variety of other options as well — light versus heavy usage, type of door, outside handle and lock options, various levels of tamper resistance, battery back-up for the alarm, plus other electronic and security options. Together with code requirements, there’s a lot of options to consider. Let our years of experience in the Dallas area help you choose.
Intercoms and Access Control
Combining an electronic or magnetic lock with an intercom promotes a safer working environment with secure entrances and door-side communication. Many systems include telephone entry systems for a central office or individual apartments or dorm rooms, and can be integrated with garage door openers and wireless key pads. Ask us about an intercom and access control system for your building.
Yes, something as seemingly as a door closer requires expertise.
Most use hydraulics to control the opening force and automatic closing speed, and these may be specified by fire, smoke, and health codes. Regulations may also specify maximum opening force and wind ratings. And there ‘s both California and federal ADA compliance requirements. Given all that, there’s also different arm types (parallel, push side, left, right, non-handed, side track…), different mounting types (surface, in-frame, in-door, in-floor), different weight ratings, and various duty ratings.
