If you have an older security door, chances are the lock is obsolete. New technologies are keeping security doors one step ahead of intruders in the arms race for home and commercial security. It’s worth understanding the value of new locking systems for improved security.
New triple contact systems with 5 pin cylinder locks (or equivalent) should be a priority when choosing a security door. They will contribute to maximising the strength and effectiveness of your security door. 3-Point locks with an anti-jimmy protective metal plate or extrusion will slow down would-be intruders in their attempts to gain access to your premises, even if they have implements such as crowbars or screwdrivers.

An added advantage of this approach is to ensure that the keys cannot be readily copied. This will give you a greater level of control over who has access to keys and it is particularly important in commercial applications. Restrictive key systems like this are ideal for good onsite security management and they’re highly effective.
