We Make Your Property Secure by Installing High-Security Locks:
There are three main grades of locks:
- Grade 1: Grade 1 locks – both residential and commercial - provide a maximum level of protection from external threats. These locks are very highly resistant to forced entry and should ideally be installed on front door and other exterior-facing locations (like garage doors).
- Grade 2: Grade 2 variants are not as secure as the Grade 1 ones, but they can still take a beating. We recommend you use these locks inside your property. They are less expensive than Grade 1 locks.
- Grade 3: These can be used inside your home or business property for securing low-risk items or areas. These types of locks are generally very cheap.
We provide both electronic and mechanical versions. Electronic locks, if you’re worried about their effectiveness, provide as much safety as mechanical ones, but they are usually the more expensive option. We source our products from well-known, reputed names like Kwikset, Falcon, Mul-T-Lock, and Schlage.
Rekey for Better Access Control
Have you had a falling out with an employee, spouse, tenant, or anyone else that has access to your property? Or, perhaps, did you lose your keys? We recommend you go for our re-keying service in all these cases. We can:
- Re-key locks individually: We can make your old keys obsolete by replacing the inner mechanism of your locking systems individually, so that they will work with a new set of keys.
- Make you a master key system: Do you want to be able to open all the doors on your home or business property with a single master key? We can convert your existing locks into a master key system, if they support the procedure.
