Businesses often ask us about these three security features, what they entail, and how to choose the best solution for their needs. Here’s some basic information about each to get you started. Please call Pop-A-Lock Tampa at (813) 365-9383 to set up an on-site analysis for more specific recommendations.
Is a master key system right for your business? It’s important to be clear on the advantages and disadvantages before you install. A master key will open multiple different locks within your facility, allowing management or security to access many areas with a single key. For example, a regular key will open just one filing cabinet, but a master key can open all the cabinets in your building. However, a master key system can also create security issues. A regular key may inadvertently open more than one lock, or a master key may be lost or duplicated. Pop-A-Lock’s experienced commercial locksmiths can engineer a customized master key system that minimizes security breaches. We’ll analyze your situation, discuss options with you, and come up with a solution that meets your needs.
Panic bars allow your business to balance your security concerns with mandatory unlocked fire and emergency exits. While anyone can exit simply by pushing on the bar, doing so triggers a loud alarm that will deter theft and non-emergency use. Pop-A-Lock installs a wide variety of Tampa fire code approved panic bars. Options can include delayed egress, which keeps the door locked for several seconds after it is pushed so that security can respond. Correctly installed panic bars protect your business, employees, and customers.
Protecting your business means not only paying attention to the locks, but also to the doors. Door closers and operators perform several important functions, including keeping your facility secure, preventing the spread of fire, and enabling ADA access. They range from simple hydraulic door closers to complex automated door operators. Give Pop-A-Lock Tampa a call today to learn about your options and schedule a door closer install.
