When one hears the word locksmith, an image of the grizzled tradesman bent over a screeching key machine comes to mind.
But today’s Door Hardware professional works diligently to maintain a vast array of skills necessary to keep your property working
with a balance of mechanical and digital options to keep you secure and aware.
In today’s world of digital access control and high-tech surveillance, many overlook mechanical locks.

After all, why invest in what many would consider an outdated technology?


In many cases the security of your access control system can be undermined if your mechanical locks are in poor condition or of low quality. Simple bypass methods like picking or shiming may be used to circumvent your access control all together.

Life Safety and Accessibility

Even in cases where your access control is well designed and doing its job, the hardware which accompanies it must meet certain criteria for life safety and accessibility. A Locksmith is just the expert you need to make sure you are in compliance with all the latest codes.

Redundancy and Convenience

So many aspects of our lives are reliant on electricity. Your access control is no exception. So, what happens when the juice stops flowing? In many cases, your access control will secure the door without any intervention from you. But when your card does not work, that little metal key is your way back into your building. Then again when your mag locks aren’t sticking, you’ll need that old mechanical lock to come out of retirement.

A good security plan depends on the right balance of well-maintained mechanical security, properly designed access control, and strong key control.
