How To Choose The Right Door Locks?

Many types of door locks are available for both residential and commercial uses. Which one you should choose depends on several factors.

  • The first consideration is the type of door and its uses. Are you looking for locks for exterior residential doors, exterior commercial doors, interior residential doors like bedrooms and bathrooms, or interior commercial doors like break rooms and offices, or industrial doors? Each type of door requires a different level of security and durability, therefore, a different lock.
  • Another major decision is how the lock will be activated. Traditional door locks use a lock and key mechanism. Keyless and electronic locks are more modern and technologically advanced. They can be opened by pin code, card or fob, fingerprint, Bluetooth, and remotely via smartphone.
  • The security level of your lock is another consideration. The ASNI Grade describes the level of security  your door lock offers. You can also choose between Grade 1,2, or 3. Grade 3 is the minimum level of security for residential properties. Grade 2 offers more security for residential and light commercial use, and Grade 1 is suitable for commercial exterior doors and industrial properties.
