Types of commercial door locks you should know about

With over 30 years' experience, we specialise in push-pads, integrated handle locks, and electronic locksets for all your commercial and residential needs
Many buildings have external doors that allow access to different areas within the building or grounds. It is important to give access to those who need it and keep other people from entering without permission. Manual and automatic locking systems enable businesses to maintain privacy for their customers and employees. However, poorly designed systems can leave businesses vulnerable to theft and other problems.

Typical commercial doors are made of steel, glass or wood. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages when used in combination with commercial locks. Steel is the most durable option but also the most expensive. Glass is strong but limits flexibility and shock absorption. Wood is often cheaper but highly susceptible to damage from temperatures and humidity and the easiest to break through. Whilst steel doors are the sturdiest, they do require regular maintenance, such as regular cleaning and oiling. However, steel doors also improve a lock's security and lifespan.

Our high-security commercial locks

The type of commercial door lock used depends very much on your commercial security requirements, and how the lock is to be used in day-to-day operations.

Our manual locking installations can be key-operated. We stock a range of lockable pull handle systems and we use trusted providers such as Rockwood door pulls.

Our range of electronic locksets provides added security and each lock only needs a button or code to open it. Electronic locksets have become increasingly popular, allowing companies to remotely lock and unlock their doors, with the added capability of monitoring whether doors are locked or not. Electronic locking systems allow for easy override systems if access is required by the emergency services or other authorised individuals.

Pro Locksmiths have a wealth of experience and use trusted manufacturers. We stock a range of models from the Yale NexTouch series, which are easy to install and can be programmed to manage access with up to 500 PIN codes. We also stock the highly popular new EMPoweredT Smart Lock range by Emtek.

Does your company have restricted areas?

Our high-security commercial locks can ensure that staff can gain access to restricted areas by using their personal cards or code combinations. All of these options provide additional security for your business, its assets and your employees against theft, destruction and unauthorised access.

At Pro Locksmiths, we understand the importance of security in commercial spaces, whether it's your home office or a business establishment. However, areas of high traffic can mean that doors are sometimes left open, which makes your business susceptible to theft if you do not keep your security up-to-date. We also provide door-closing devices to ensure your doors stay closed and locked when needed.

If you are looking to upgrade your current security and door locks, or need help in reducing the risk of theft for your company, we can help. Regardless as to which type of commercial door lock you choose, it's important to make sure it is installed correctly and that it meets the security requirements for your business.
