Do You Need A Commercial Locksmith?

Businesses are often in need of a locksmith, but they usually require the services of one who specializes in installing and repairing security systems designed to protect commercial properties, such as stores, offices and warehouses.

The types of locks and security equipment devices used to protect commercial establishments are far more advanced than those used for protecting residential properties, and understandably so, since you’re not protecting so much or so many people. A building used for business purposes may require security systems that allow access only to certain people in certain areas, camera coverage for the entire building, inside and out, surveillance systems, master keys and much more.


Read on to know more about what services a specialized commercial locksmith may provide:

  • Installation of master lock and making of master keys
  • Setting up CCTV and surveillance cameras
  • Installation of anti-burglar systems and panic bars
  • Access control systems
  • Fitting cabinet locks with individual and master keys
  • High-security locks
  • Automated door access systems
  • Fitting lock systems for filing cabinets
  • Electronic door releases
  • Fitting exit alarm locks

These are just some of the many specialized services that a commercial locksmith can offer, and if you own a business that needs any of its security systems to be updated or replaced, talk to your local commercial locksmith about your options.

Ensuring your business is compliant with the law:

Each U.S. state has its own set of laws and regulations when it comes to security and complying with the rules is very important if you want your business to survive and thrive; it’s important not only for you as the business owner, but for your employees, too. If the safety of your workers while they are under your employee is not paramount and accounted for, then you could face costly lawsuits from disgruntled, sick or even injured workers, not to mention the repercussions should any of their personal data become compromised through a faulty security system.

There is also the possibility that should your company be selected for a security audit, it may fail and face hefty penalties or even closure as a result.

Not sure if your business is compliant?

Commercial locksmiths also act as security consultants and if you’re concerned that your business is either not conforming to local and federal security requirements or is not as secure as you feel it should be, then they will visit your premises and conduct a thorough security examination. Any upgrades, replacements or repairs that may be required, can then be installed by the locksmith and checked at least every 6 months to ensure they’re functionality.

Your business is important to you, and having it be shut down or suspended because you’re not meeting the security requirements that your state has outlined, is simply not worth the risk. Book a security consultation with your local commercial locksmith today and ensure that you, your employees, your clients and your premises are as secure as they can possibly be.
