Locks and their level of security are very important. In any house, we normally feel secure as long as everything is locked; locks make us feel safe and protected from burglars. Of course locks do help with the security of any place, but they are not completely unbreakable. If they were, there would not be as many break-ins as there are today. And it is because of this reason that we must understand the difference between ordinary security and high security locks.
Most people don’t know that locks come in three different grades:
· Grade 1: Commercial – Industrial
· Grade 2: Heavy Duty Residential/ Light Duty Commercial
· Grade 3: Residential Only/ Consumer Expendable
If you are getting new locks for your home or business you should ask the locksmith you hired about the different grades to guarantee that he is using the appropriate one. There are high security cylinders that are very hard to pick or even drill! Of course they are going to be kind of pricey but they are totally worth it, especially if you are going to use it for a warehouse with a lot of inventory or any commercial building. Security comes first so contact a commercial locksmith today!
