CHANGE THE LOCKING MECHANISM
Being the most durable and reliable, metal constructions have gained immense popularity in recent years. This is due to both the excellent physical characteristics of such a product and a fairly wide range of prices for it. This means that there is an opportunity to choose a model not only for every taste but also for every wallet. However, low-end products are often equipped with unreliable locks, and experts recommend to swap the locking mechanism to a more sophisticated model immediately upon purchase. Buying an inexpensive door and installing an expensive, high-grade lock for it has already become a fairly popular way to save the money without sacrificing the overall security of the system. This is especially true for residents of apartment buildings, where an attempt to open the mechanism will inevitably attract the attention of neighbours. Statistics say that in the overwhelming majority of cases in such houses, burglars do not use tools that can cut metal. Instead, they try to open the locks quietly and unnoticed by others. This means that for reliable protection, you do not need a structure made of very thick metal at all; it will be enough just to change cheap locking mechanisms to more reliable ones. If desired, you can also install an armour plate, which will protect the insertion slot from mechanical stress. If you decide to follow this path, we will perform all the necessary work and advise on the type of device which is best suited for your particular situation. The specialist will assess the doorway, the degree of security of the staircase, the quality and technical features of the locking device, the remoteness of neighbours and will choose the most suitable mechanism which offers a sufficient level of security in your specific case.
Most of us, of course, are well aware of the fact that it is absolutely vital to the security of your premises to swap the locking mechanism if the keys to it were lost or stolen. Now, let’s talk about other much less obvious situations when such a course of action is a good idea. So, the first situation. You gave the keys to your apartment to the neighbour. For example, you went on vacation and asked him or her to feed the cat. Naturally, you will not give the keys to the apartment to someone you do not trust. But you can’t be sure that during your absence the keys did not come into the field of view of suspicious individuals. Your respected neighbour may not even know that one of the guests has already taken a copy. Perhaps, this advice will outrage you, because it is impossible to swap the locks after every vacation.
Why not? With our company, this can be achieved quickly and inexpensively. The safety of your premises and property is a serious matter that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Let’s take a look at the second situation. It is also necessary to replace the locking mechanism after you have rented out your home. Even if the former tenants were your good acquaintances or inspired confidence. You can’t know in whose hands the keys to the apartment have been. Moreover, it is recommended to swap the mechanism even if you are going to rent out your home again. This will protect your future tenants and preserve your reputation. In most cases, it is not necessary to replace the device completely; inserting a new cylinder will provide adequate protection against unauthorized entry.
