The most obvious way to enter your home or office is through the door. Armstrong will ensure that all your door locks are fitted and operating correctly, and that only the right keys will open your door, giving you peace of mind and a secure environment.
Armstrong’s Professional Door Lock Services
Key locks need to work easily and correctly the first time. The safety and well-being of your home and your business, as well as your family and employees depend on it. That’s why having highly trained and certified locksmiths, and the most up-to-date door lock mechanisms professionally installed is vital. Which kind of door lock installation or service will best suit your needs can be assessed by a site visit from one of our locksmiths.
There are times when a simple re-keying is all that is required. You may have had a change of staff or are needing to change who has access to your building or home. If your door lock hardware is in good condition, then you won’t need to replace the door lock itself, just the inside pinning and a new set of keys. The old keys will no longer work, making your space that much more secure.
The One-Key System
Rather than having multiple keys, each of which only open one door, Armstrong can make your life easier by setting your door locks to operate with one key.
Installing New Lock Hardware
Because door locks for both home and business are your first level of security, it’s important to have the door lock hardware professionally installed. Armstrong’s technicians are fast, reliable, and have all the equipment they need to repair or replace your door locks quickly and correctly, no matter what type, brand or model. Choosing the right door lock hardware can be daunting. Armstrong’s team are here to both advise on the perfect hardware for your needs and to ensure it is installed correctly.
Depending on the type of door you have, Armstrong can supply a huge variety of options from both the Lockwood and Yale brands. The three best-selling key-accessed locks are:
● Knob locks
A very common lock, these should only be used on internal doors. The most popular of the Yale knob-locks, YALE MCN3000, comes with a reversible latch for left- or right-hand doors.
Deadbolts are usually used on exterior doors. The model most popular in New Zealand, the YALE CYL & TURN DEADBOLT PB, provides key access from both sides of the door and is made in such a way as it is reversible for use on left- or right-hand doors.
● Cylinder Mortice Locks
These locks, like the Lockwood Synergy® 3572 Vestibule Mortice Lock, are one of the best options for heavy duty use. Cylinder Mortice Locks are made from quality materials to meet high durability and strength requirements for industrial and commercial buildings, institutions, clubs, schools, hospitals, hotels, etc, and can be easily adapted to suit the function for which they are needed.
New hardware may require the current door lock to be dismantled, while a new type of door lock may entail the technician enlarging the area in the door where the lock will fit. Either way, the work will be carried out safely and without damaging the door.
