So what IS a Commercial locksmith?
This is the third post in our 3-Part series, “What’s a locksmith go to do with it?” In Part 1, we focused on what a locksmith is NOT. In Part 2, we focused on what a locksmith can do for you as a Residential customer. Today, in Part 3, we are going to focus on what a Commercial Locksmith IS.
Again, there is a lot of overlap in what a locksmith can do for you as a commercial customer and as a residential customer, so we hope that will you read both this Part 3 blog post, as well as our Part 1 and Part 2 posts.
Commercial customers have a number of different needs to be concerned with. In addition to the need to protect their property, they also have to worry a lot more about liability issues that can result from poorly operating doors and compliance issues, and the safety and security of a lot more people (with both employees and customers). We are going to discuss some of the ways that your Security Professional can help you.
Policies & Procedures:
Locksmiths are experts at knowing how to help your business develop policies and procedures to keep you safe. It can be very difficult to know what you should do to safeguard your business or organization. We can advise you on the best ways to keep your facilities and personnel safe and secure.
Locksmiths can build key systems that serve you exceptionally. We can build a key system for your business that will provide you with a single key for your doors, padlocks, outbuilding, and even your file cabinets. If you have other people needing access to your business (i.e. maintenance personnel, janitorial staff, tenants, etc.), we can create a system that will allow keys to work in some locks but not all. We specialize in making your locking environment very easy to use. (And we can do this for your residence, as well–if you have caregivers or other household staff needing access to certain parts of your house.)
Access Control Systems:
Security professionals are experts at building access control systems that will work for a long time. From a single door system to an enterprise level system, we can match you with the right product to lessen the number of keys that you need to issue and to provide seamless and secure use of your facility. We can implement access control with badges, codes, biometrics, or keys. We can set up anti-passback (to keep multiple people from using a single badge) and man traps (to allow only one person through at a time.) We will work with you to find the best solution for you.
Storefront Door Service and Repair:
Storefront doors come with their own set of problems and challenges. They can be very difficult to figure out and service. Your locksmith knows how to install, service, and maintain all of the systems that make your storefront door work. So stop letting your door smack your customers in the backside, and give us a call.
Crash bars, door stops, and everything in between:
There are many unique pieces of hardware that make your business secure and functional. Your locksmith is trained to make all of them work well. We can adjust a pivot, install a sweep, bring a latch into compliance, and much more. If you don’t know what those words mean, don’t worry, we do, and we will happily show you what is broken and how we are going to fix it.
Your Commercial Locksmith is an expert when it comes to knowing and understanding the many different codes and how they apply to you. We stay up to date on the various codes that pertain to your home and business. Whether it is your home, rental property, or business, we know how to apply the relevant codes to keep you in compliance and doing what you do without a hitch. We stay up to date on international building code, fire code, life safety code, and ADA code so that you can keep doing what you do best, without worrying about compliance issues.
Security Solutions for Business:
Most locksmiths today know how to guide you to solutions that protect your business. Your commercial locksmith knows about mass notification systems (to alert all of your people very quickly about an emergency) and visitor management systems (to ensure that the people who are in your building/campus are supposed to be there). We know how to integrate these systems into your business or organization. We can advise you in best practice in implementing the policies and procedures to protect your business/organization.
Security Camera Systems:
Security cameras can be a great addition to any business/organization’s security plan. But which ones do you need? How many? Looking at what? Your Commercial locksmith can assist you with all of these questions. From setting up a few cameras to monitor the productivity of your employees, to completely covering your facility for safety or liability purposes, we can specify, set up, and manage the system for you.
The things in this list about Commercial Locksmith services and those in the list of locksmith services for the residential customers is far from a complete list of the Security Services that a locksmith can provide for you. However, I hope that these posts have begun to give you an understanding of the large scope of what your locksmith can do. A locksmith today is so much more than just someone who can duplicate your key or break into your home or vehicle for you.
