So What are High-Security Locks?
High-security locks provide a higher level of security as they are designed to resist forced entry and are very hard to manipulate. They are manufactured to a very high standard and designed by engineers to prevent forced entry by picking, physical attack with tools, or drilling and require a security rating to qualify as high-security locks.
Security Door Locks
Make high-security door locks the first step in your security plan by upgrading the conventional locks in your main points of entry. Doors are the main point of entry for burglars who follow a path of least resistance. Conventional door locking systems and mechanisms offer little resistance to determined burglars. Secure your premises by installing high-security locks on all perimeter doors.
Pick-proof locks have multiple moving parts that are activated in stages with precise movement, accuracy, and timing to thwart the attempts of burglars to gain entry with a master key.
High-security locks have cylinders that have been manufactured with unique built-in drill and saw resistant hard materials. They also have housings, bolts, strike plates and fasteners made of heavy duty materials to further deter attempts at forced entry.
High-security locks have superior overall key control with patents and contracts for control and distribution of keys. Patents protect the design and the functioning of the key in the lock and contracts protect the rights to manufacture and distribute keys while still others protect the rights of professional locksmiths to distribute and duplicate keys. Large sums of money are invested by companies to patent and protect the design of high-security locks and keys.
Restricted Key Locks
Restricted key systems offer a much higher level of security with the owner having sole control over who has keys and who is allowed to cut duplicate keys, making it harder for burglars to gain access. The system is easily configured to a master key system with different keys having access to different locks. It also offers a facility that combines with key management functionality and complete audit capabilities.
High-security keys are not available at conventional locksmiths and outlets as they require strict controls and procedures via a signature verification process in order to guarantee the control of keys. Only owners on the registry may receive duplicate keys.
Advantages of High-Security Locks
While most individuals and companies still use the most common key-operated security devices to control access to premises, many are now considering the use of high security locking systems. Even when sophisticated electronic devices have been installed for access control, manual lock systems are still in use on most doors.
Advantages of Using High-Security Locks
– They are virtually pick-proof with special mechanisms that make manipulation extremely difficult or even impossible.
– Most high-security locks are drill-resistant.
– Protective security measures include the use of special hardened pins, hardened metal cases, special metal shields to prevent penetration of the lock itself, and special disks placed in the mechanism to prevent tools like a drill from penetrating the lock.
– Key control adds another level of security as CISA SP security cylinders can only be duplicated with the written authorization of the registered owner of the locks.
The key characteristics of security locks are their design, materials, and other methods that increase the locks capability to resist force from unauthorized breach for a certain amount of time. With key control, details of high-security lock owners are kept safely by the security company to prevent unauthorized access. Locations: Location 1, Location 2 or Location 3 Home
