COMMERCIAL LOCK REKEY
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN REKEYING COMMERCIAL LOCKS
Commercial properties with high tenant turnover rates should incorporate strategies for mitigating the costs associated with building security. Depending on the lock type and security level, commercial door locks and hardware could be expensive to replace. That is why we always recommend rekeying commercial locks when the only objective is to change the keys for the locks or reduce the number of keys needed for the property. This option could save business and commercial property owners a significant amount of time and money.
REKEYING HIGH SECURITY LOCKS
Rekeying high security locks requires special tools along with a professional locksmith that is experienced in servicing locks of this type. We highly recommend that you choose the right professional for this type of work, as it involves a very high level of skill and these types of locks can be quite expensive to replace if they are damaged. All our locksmiths are highly experienced in rekeying all types of locks, including the high security variety.
INTERCHANGEABLE CORE LOCKS
Properties that frequently rekey locks could benefit from interchangeable core locks or IC locks. These locks contain a removeable 'core' cylinder that can be easily and quickly removed with a special key and replaced with another, essentially achieving the same goal as a conventionl rekey service. These cores can also be interchanged with other compatible IC locks that are of a different type. This type of flexibility can greatly reduce costs and save time, as the business or property owner can simply and easily change the key to a lock on their own without having to call a locksmith. These locks are highly useful for properties that are in constant need of a rekey service and have some flexibility for their lock requirements.
