Despite their size and the little attention people regularly dedicate to them, locks are one of the most essential pieces of hardware in any home. These small devices are in charge of keeping you and your belongings safe. They also greatly increase privacy and, believe it or not, freedom. It is then always important to make sure you have the best locksets in the market, and that they are properly installed.
TYPES OF DOOR LOCKS
The most common locks are those that use physical keys as the only way to open them. These follow centuries of tradition in their principles, but their design has improved greatly with the advent of newer materials and assembly technologies.
Hinged door locks are the most common sight in American houses because of their simplicity, their relative high protection level, and their affordability. Matrix Locksmith offers hinged locks of every type, and the widest range of options. We have levers and knobs in the most popular finishes with top of its class cylinders. They suit almost any door thickness and many have the option to use master keys, ideal for commercial or institutional environments. For main entryways, we recommend pairing knob and level locksets with a deadbolt.
Mortice locks are also a popular choice among those who install high security doors. They are highly durable and generally a lot harder to bypass than regular hinged locks. Electronic locksets have evolved greatly since their inception during the last century. They are extremely versatile as they can adapt to any environment and door style seamlessly. But they also offer a number of advantages over their physical counterparts.
First off, they are harder to pick since many of the newer locking mechanisms do not consist of exposed pins and tumblers. They come with complete access control systems that grants or restricts access depending on your specific needs. They also offer a variety of operational options for your convenience.
