Top 5 Upgrades To Safely Reopen

Thank you for shopping local - from Harry's Locksmith

1) Increase Touchless Entries

A worthwhile investment into the future is preventing the spread of diseases, the flu, and other illnesses. While COVID-19 may not be around forever, the CDC estimates that millions of people are burden by the flu each year. That can mean lost revenue and wages for a business. By increasing or retrofitting existing doorways to touchless entries, you can help curb the spread.

2) Upgrade to Antimicrobial Hardware

Businesses have a range of options from Antimicrobial Ionic Silver Coatings, Copper-Based Alloy Handles, Germ Selves, to Microban® Hardware. Harry’s Locksmith has access to different styles, functions, and finishes that fit your building use and design.

3) Incorporate ADA Compliance

4) Install Smart Door Closers

Low-Energy Automatic Operators help increase safety and accessibility. Closers increase security for your doors. Both allow for code compliance over propping a door open manually, which may have other added risks.

5) Consider Mobile Access Control

Proxy cards on a large scale can require a lot of upkeep for situations where there is theft, card expiration, or general replacements from being misplaced. Mobile access on the other hand, can be granted or revoked remotely. Many companies now also let you set up Mobile Access Controls with your Smartwatch.

Five Types of Commercial Door Locks

Commercial Door Locks

 

You’ve put your all into building your business, so it only makes sense you’d want to keep everything as safe as possible. That’s why many businesses use commercial door locks to safely secure their offices, warehouses, storefronts, etc.

What is a commercial grade lock?

A commercial grade lock is one with a stronger rating, as determined by the Builders Home Manufacturers Association, the official trade association for manufacturers of building hardware. The Association is credited by the American National Standards Institute to perform such gradings. Read our article about the differences between commercial door hardware and residential door hardware.

 

Commercial Grade Door Locks Explained

Locks can have three grades: 1, 2 or 3. The Association looks at six qualities when determining a lock’s grade: operational (which tests to make sure the door will latch easily when pushed close), strength, cycles (the number of uses a lock can withstand before a replacement is needed), security, material evaluation and finish.

Grade 3 is considered a standard lock, typically used for residential doors. They are also often used in areas not open to all traffic, such as supply closets, offices without expensive equipment or break rooms.

Grade 2 locks are used for residential areas with more traffic, such as a door leading into an apartment building of complex. Some businesses can also use Grade 2 locks for areas that require a higher degree of security. That can include an office or doors to storage rooms housing valuable merchandise, equipment or other materials.

Grade 1 locks are considered the strongest of all. This grade is given to the most secure commercial door locks, locks that are placed at high-traffic areas like schools, hospitals and museums. Grade 1 locks are also expected to have longer lives than lower graded locks.

 

Deciding What Grade of Commercial Door Looks Is Best For You

Once you decide which grade of lock will work best for your business, the next step is to dive into the different types of locks available. Some of the most common commercial grade locks are: mortise locks, panic bars or crash bars, cylindrical lever locks, keypad door locks and commercial electric strike locks.

 

Mortise Locks

Mortise locks are known to be durable and in use at businesses with a lot of foot traffic. They come in two parts: the cylinder, which takes the key, and the body, which contains the locking mechanism. The mortise locks is widely used commercially because it has a reputation for withstanding constant use. The actual deadbolt portion of the lock is located inside the body, making it less accessible but also more resistant to forced entry. The mortise lock requires a pocket to be drilled into the door and then chiseled out even more by hand.

 

Commercial Panic Crash Bar

The panic or crash bar is often seen in commercial businesses. To open a door with one of these, you simply push in. They are also used to handle emergency situations. Panic bars have been known to be placed in areas with certain fire requirements. They are also long-lasting, but require quite a bit of maintenance to make sure they are working in case there ever is an emergency.

 

Cylindrical Lever Locks

The cylindrical lever lock travels through the entire door, and is a popular option because they are generally quick to install. The cylindrical lever is also used frequently because there are many aesthetic options, and the variety of options allows people to match the lock easier to the rest of the décor. They can also be used with a just a key, or a combination of a key and a push button placed on the handle.

 

Keypad Door Locks

Keypad door locks are good for those who need to give multiple people access to a secure area, but without having to give everyone a key. Some more modern options can enhance safety by automatically locking for a length of time after a certain number of incorrect attempts at entering the code. The keypad door locks can usually be installed on any typical door, but are often a pricier option than a standard lock.

 

Electric Strike Locks

Electric strike locks are typically used in conjunction with another type of lock, often a panic bar or keypad. Electric strikes work similarly to a door buzzer that you’d see to get into an apartment building or a bank. The door remains locked, and authorized users can open it by hitting a buzzer. The electric strike can also have a pad where people can swipe a key fob to unlock the door.

The electric strike also has two other options: a fail-secure lock and a fail-safe lock. A fail-secure lock will remain locked during a power outage. This is why the electric strike locks are often teamed up with another lock, so it can be used even during a power outage. The fail-safe option unlocks in the event of a power outage, giving anyone access to that door.

 

Commercial Door Lock Options

There are plenty of other options for securing your commercial space. There are other kinds of locks, or other products for additional security. One that we at Harry’s Locksmith started offering earlier this year is a latch guard, which provides full door latch protection. Whereas there is usually a plate that goes over the opening, the latch guard plate runs down and covers the entire opening of the door and frame. That can combat burglars who try to break into a business or home by stuffing a crowbar between the door and frame to pry it open.

 

Commercial Door Lock Installation

Regardless of which style of lock you decide will work best for your commercial space, the most important thing is to make sure it’s installed properly. No matter the kind of lock you want, Harry’s will install it professionally while providing knowledgeable and exemplary services. Harry’s offers services that are ADA compliant, services for those who need to make ADA upgrades and fire door inspections.

Commercial Doors

 

Behind, or more often in front, of every safe and secure business is a strong commercial door. Commercial doors are specifically built for commercial purposes, such as office buildings, stores, schools, and hospitals. They are built with more durability and strength than a residential door, and can withstand more frequent use.

Types of Commercial Doors

There are a few different kinds of commercial doors you can have installed to secure your commercial space. Roll up doors are made of steel slats, which last for a long time with minimum maintenance. They simply roll up overhead and are stored above the door opening, giving you some added commercial space.

Overhead Doors

Overhead doors are often used at loading docks and manufacturing facilities to allow large objects to be brought into the building. They also save space by opening upwards instead of swinging out. Overhead doors can be a fast, efficient way to allow access to a commercial space.

Fire Rated Doors

If your commercial space is exposed to petrol or other harmful chemicals, you will probably want to look at fire rated doors, which can help reduce the risk that come with handling such substances. These doors are designed to close automatically in the event of a fire, sealing off the fire-affected area and keeping other areas of your business or outdoor areas safe. The fire rated door also helps to prevent the spread of and reduce fire damage.

Scissor Gate Doors

Scissor gate doors are made from high quality steel for added security. They are preferable for commercial establishments, including lending firms and banks. The secure construction offers safety and protection for your business while being lightweight and user-friendly. Scissor gate doors can be custom designed for your commercial space, whether you’re looking to have them placed in a storefront or on an internal door.

Commercial Door Materials

Steel Doors

Commercial doors come in a range of styles and can be built with different materials, including steel, which provides high security and durability. It’s one of the most common materials used to build a commercial door. Steel commercial doors are manufactured from metal sheets and wrapped around some sort of core of installation. You can improve its security by inserting various kinds of locking systems into the door.

Wood Doors

Commercial doors can be built using wood, which aren’t as durable as many of the other materials. Wood doors are typically very sensitive and aren’t able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

Aluminum Doors

Doors made from aluminum and glass are frequently used at entrance ways for commercial structures and are chosen for their clean appearance that also allows in natural light thanks to the glass. These doors are usually low maintenance, although you’ll probably have to wipe down the glass portion of the door to keep it sparkly and clean.

Glass Doors

Full glass doors are primarily used on building interiors for their decorative look. They allow in a large amount of light, which can make your commercial space seem larger. They are also built with safety glass to reduce the risk of injury in case the door is broken.

Fiberglass Doors

Fiberglass doors are some of the most durable you can put in your business. They are manufactured using plastic matrix and fine fibers of glass. Fiberglass doors typically require little maintenance and have a reputation for outlasting many other door materials.

What Door is the Best Fit for Your Business

The first steps in deciding what commercial door you want is to figure out which style of door will fit your space best, and what material you want it to be built from. The trained professionals from Harry’s can help you figure out not only what door will work best for you, but will also install it safely and securely.

6 Products That Are Helping Businesses Fight COVID-19: Germ Shields and More

Harry’s Locksmith has teamed up with the industry’s leading manufacturers to provide products that can help prevent the spread of viruses like COVID-19.

Technologies like germ shields, touchless hardware and antimicrobial coated hardware can help stop the spread of germs. In addition to hand hygiene and cleaning practices, these products are here to develop a multi-barrier form of protection.

 

1. Germ shields

As the coronavirus winds down, banks, grocery stores, and facilities with office spaces in Washington and Oregon are buying germ shields to protect their customers and employees. Germ shields (aka sneeze guards) are freestanding clear acrylic shields that can be placed at any transaction area. They serve as a barrier for droplets from cough, sneeze, spitting or talking. Germ shields are one effective method businesses are utilizing to stop the spread of germs. View germ shield brochure here.

Where are germ shields used? 

If you have a transaction area in your building or a conference table, our plexiglass acrylic germ shields could be the right fit for your facility. Custom sizes are available.

2. Antimicrobial coated door hardware

Harry’s Locksmith is a provider and installer for manufactured antimicrobial coated door hardware. We work with the biggest brands, like Allegion and Assa Abloy for example, to provide top notch antimicrobial door hardware solutions.

What makes antimicrobial coated door hardware special? The silver ion microbial coating. This coating is specially formulated to combat the growth of bacteria by interrupting cell multiplication. 

How does the technology work? Ionic silver coatings interact with the bonding site on the microbe surface. The result is that the silver ions surround bacteria cells, blockading food and slowing the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. 

Antimicrobial coated hardware is ideally suited for high traffic, public use areas. Microban antimicrobial hardware is also available for our residential customers. This type of hardware is not a substitute for hygiene or cleanliness.

What types of antimicrobial hardware do we install? Panic bars, exit bars, door handles, door plates, and push/pull handles. We have a wide range of products that feature an antimicrobial coating along with different styles, functions and finishes that fit your building use and design.

Instead of using a wipe, consider a long-term solution like antimicrobial coated hardware for your facility. Invest in and provide protection for years to come. 

[maxbutton id=”5″ url=”https://harryslocksmith.com/covid-19/”]

 

3. Germ protective sleeves

Germ sleeves are one antimicrobial solution that businesses are using to reduce the occurrence of viruses like COVID-19. Germ sleeves are adhesive tapes that provide an antimicrobial and anti-fungal coating. They can be placed on all types of surfaces and handles within your facility.

How are they applied? Germ sleeves shrink to fit with an adhesive film cover that continuously reduces the presence of microbes on their surface. They are designed to cover most common touch-points such as door handles, push plates and hand railings.

Door knobs, door handles, ADA door handles, panic hardware and push bar doors are examples of germ sleeve applications. Germ sleeves are available in a variety of sizes and are designed to fit over common sizes of toilet and faucet handles and door knobs. Quick install and versatile for a variety of commercial and residential applications.

4. Copper coated hardware

Are you looking for a simple way to make your business or school safer? Copper coated hardware may be the answer. 

We install a variety of copper plated door hardware. For example, copper plated door handles, door knobs, entry door locks, and other touch points.

How does copper kill germs? Copper has antimicrobial properties that destroy bacteria’s DNA. It is known to kill surface bacteria. Copper is the only solid metal touch surface to have been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in recognition of antimicrobial properties. Copper alloy metals like brasses and bronzes are also effective against many disease-causing bacteria.

According to the EPA, “when cleaning regularly, antimicrobial copper alloys surfaces kill greater than 99.9 percent of (specific) bacteria within two hours, and continue to kill more than 99 perfect of (these) bacteria even after repeated contamination”. 

Copper plated door hardware is not a substitute for standard cleaning protocols and thorough hand hygiene.

What are other applications for copper coated hardware? Hospitals, schools, banks, and other high traffic buildings are using copper plated hardware. If your building has a push bar, vertical pull bar, rectangular crash bar, push plate, round crash bar, or an accessible door button (ADA), we provide copper covers.  

 

5. Touchless hardware

Did you know that more than 80% of viruses are spread by our hands? Stop the spread of bacteria with products like touchless or hands free door opening devices. 

Banks, businesses, medical facilities, and commercial properties are investing in touchless hardware to protect against harmful germs. 

Harry’s Locksmith is a provider and installer for a variety of hands free door opening options including no touch electronic locks, touchless actuators, wave to open devices, and keyless entry. Consider this article when you choose between commercial locksmith companies.

Hands free activation devices are designed to detect the motion of a wave and send an electrical signal to the door operator to open the door, re-open or hold a door open. 

Offering no touch openings can make a big difference in inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Touchless switches also enhance user experiences and increase ADA accessibility.

6. PUR cleaner spray

PUR cleaner spray is an EPA approved COVID-19 sanitizer. It is known to “kill germs in as few as 30 seconds and does not require rinsing” (link quote to flyer on our site). The sanitizing spray is ideally used in restaurants, offices, hospitals, schools, hotels, restrooms, recreational facilities, public transport vehicles, and homes.

Restaurants love PUR cleaner spray because it is approved for food contact surfaces without the requirement of a rinse. For example, after you spray your countertop you do not need to rinse it afterwards. 

It can be used on painted, glazed tile, plastic, metal, glass and glazed porcelain. For other areas, make sure to test in an inconspicuous area before use.

How long does PUR cleaner spray last? When used as directed, it provides 24 hour protection. And it continues to kill common bacteria for up to 24 hours.

Does it have bleach in it? PURE spray is easy to use and contains no bleach, ammonia, phosphates, phenols or VOC emitting compounds. The odorless formula is non-caustic and non-irritating.

Now more than ever, companies are developing plans to provide protection on their public doors. How are you preparing your facility for post-coronavirus operations?

How Does a Commercial Door & Hardware Compare to Residential?

man repairing door

One of the biggest concerns when it comes to owning or running a business or other commercial venture is security. If your building isn’t properly secure, your company faces more than just serious financial risk. The safety of your employees may be at stake as well. That’s why it’s critical to put the security of your building in the hands of professionals who are experienced with commercial structures. Naturally, security starts right at the entrance to your building. It must begin at the door. 

When it comes to the installation of secure doors for a place of business, simply having experience with residential properties is not enough; as this article will demonstrate, there’s a great deal of difference between a commercial door and its hardware, and that of a residential one. We’ll compare and contrast a few of those differences below. 

Think About Use

Before we begin to break down the differences between commercial doors and residential ones, we should discuss exactly why they are constructed differently. Are residential doors less secure? Don’t those in private homes value their security? Well, the answer isn’t that the residential doors are less secure; quite the opposite, in fact, if they’ve been installed by a reliable company like Harry’s Locksmith, the door of your residence will be incredibly secure. 

However, there is still a difference and you cannot simply put the same door as you would in your house and use it for your business. Unless you have a positively enormous family all sharing one house, your residence simply doesn’t get the type of traffic that a place of business does. 

If you own a store or any other type of business frequented by the public, then you can potentially have hundreds of guests in a day. That’s hundreds of hands grabbing your doorknob and turning it, and pulling your door open and closed. With that much use, a door made for a residence would simply drop off after a very short period of time. So for a commercial building, you’ll simply need something more heavy-duty. 

The Strength of Your Door

When you’re shopping for a commercial door, you may have noticed a UL (Underwriters Laboratories) sign where they are sold. The UL simply means the door has been tested to meet all the safety requirements that have been set in the case of a fire. 

Next to the UL sign, you may see the phrase, “Conforms with ANSI.” ANSI is the American National Standards Institute and is responsible for setting standards for many things, not just doors. This entity is responsible for quality control when it comes to selling door hardware for commercial buildings. ANSI will test door hardware for strength and longevity and issue a grade. The strongest and most heavy duty doors will receive Grade 1. Public buildings that see thousands of visitors, such as hospitals or schools, will use Grade 1 doors. 

The next most durable door hardware will receive a rating of Grade 2. Grade 2 doors are used for commercial buildings that receive less traffic. Smaller businesses and offices generally make use of these. They are also used in certain residential buildings, such as apartments. Finally, the simplest rating is Grade 3. Grade 3 rated doors are perfect for low-traffic buildings and also work well inside of homes. They are generally not suitable for commercial structures. 

It’s About More Than Strength

A commercial door should have hardware with a high ANSI rating, but that’s not all it needs. Residential doors that are used in the home do not need to comply with the often strict codes and laws that businesses have to follow. 

Your door must not only be secure, but it must also be accessible. So when you are thinking of getting a new commercial door for your business, you should also check if it is ADA Compliant

ADA stands for the Americans With Disabilities Act and is a U.S. law designed to make commercial buildings safe and accessible for all. This is where shopping for a door for a business can get a little tricky; a door can be very safe and secure, but not technically comply with the ADA regulations. If that’s the case, you’ll most likely need to look elsewhere. 

An ADA compliant door must be able to be accessed with an opening force of five pounds or less. In other words, it must be lightweight as well as strong. The door handle or knob, as well as any latches or locks, must be simple to operate; they cannot require any tight grasping or the twisting of the wrist. There are many more ADA guidelines that you should familiarize yourself with before installing a commercial door. Visit this link on the United States Access Board website for more information. 

Security Matters

Another major difference between a residential door and a commercial door is how they are secured. Unlike residences, businesses are often accessed through electrical doors as well as more conventional ones. They may also have electrified locks, keyless entry or other digital means of access. You may also have, depending on your staffing, many copies of the door key in the hands of various employees. Because of this, you may need to change your locks a lot more regularly than you would for a residence. You may also need to order high-security or restricted keys. 

Regularly, even if your business has faced no known security threats, you’ll want to upgrade your door to the newest locks. The security of your building may depend on it. 

Getting a Commercial Door Installed

Since having a commercial door installed in your place of business requires specialized knowledge and skill, you’ll need to find a locksmith that specializes in the right type of door hardware. Recommended by Three Best Rated as the top locksmith in the Vancouver, WA area, Harry’s Locksmith is the perfect example of a company that can help you with all your needs – commercial and residential – and they have the benefit of experience since they’ve been in the business for decades.

5 Keyless Entry Options for Businesses

5 Keyless Entry Options for Businesses

We’ve all experienced that moment; you get to the door and suddenly realize you don’t have your keys. Maybe it’s just as you’re walking out of the building after work. Then, suddenly the door slams shut behind you. It’s too late to react. You’re already locked out.

It’s tough dealing with these types of situations, but your company still shouldn’t sacrifice security for convenience. We certainly understand that and we don’t believe you should have to. That’s why Harry’s Locksmith has the solutions for you. Here are our top five keyless entry options for businesses.

Biometric

Not only can forgetting or losing your keys be frustrating, but it can also compromise your security. Keys that are lost on the street can be picked up by anyone or duplicated so that you’re no longer in control of who can access your building.

If you want to have peace of mind by maximizing your building’s security, a biometric entry system may work best. Biometric locks are a secure option because they require you to verify your identity before gaining entry to a building. Additionally, such locks are able to time-stamp entries so that you know exactly who is entering your building and when.

Many biometric locks have a two-step authentication system for enhanced security. First, the device will scan your fingerprint to confirm your identity. Next, you’ll enter a code into a keypad to unlock the door. Biometric locks are great options for small business owners since they can typically be programmed with up to 100 fingerprints.

Keypads

While biometric locks work well for smaller businesses or restricted access areas, you may want to select another option if you have a large business that sees a lot of foot traffic. Keypad locks are a good option because they allow quick access into a building by simply entering a code into a keypad. With these types of locks, you select between electronic and mechanical.

Electronic keypads are battery operated and light up by touch. This is an excellent feature if you have people entering your building after dark. The light will make it easier for access codes to be entered quickly and accurately. The important thing to remember with electronic keypads is that you’ll need to change the battery every so often or you may get locked out. Electronic keypads are often equipped with a backup key for that very reason.

Mechanical keypads are a good alternative if you don’t want to switch out batteries. One downside of keypads, however, is that once someone leaves your company, they’ll still have access to your building unless you change the code. That’s less than ideal if you have a company with a high turnover rate. In that case, you may want to explore other options.

Key Fobs

Key fobs are electronic devices that can be scanned in front of a reader. The reader takes the data from the fob and transmits it to a central server, which will then grant access to the building. Key fobs are great keyless entry options for large businesses for a couple of reasons. First, the system retains the scanned information so you’ll have a record of who entered the building at that time. Second, the device can be deactivated once an employee leaves the company.

With key fobs, you can also customize access to each individual fob. That means if you want certain parts of your building to remain restricted, you can make sure only certain key fobs are activated to gain entry to those particular areas. With customization options and easy deactivation, key fobs are an excellent way to make sure your business remains secure.

Intercoms

Certain buildings, particularly those occupied by children, benefit from the use of intercom systems. Intercom systems are typically equipped with video and enhance security to make sure that whoever comes to the door is thoroughly vetted prior to entry. Once a person’s identity has been verified, the intercom system’s master user can press a door release button. That button is connected to electronic locking hardware, such as an electric strike. Once pressed, the button will disable the lock so that the person can gain entry into the building.

Another way intercom systems keep your building secure is by storing video so that it can be viewed at a later time. This is particularly important if you need to go back and review building entry footage for any reason.

Smart Locks

In today’s world, there are all sorts of smart devices. This includes door locks. With smart keyless entry, access to your building is literally at your fingertips. By using your smartphone, you can lock or unlock your building remotely. Have someone swinging by? You can unlock the door for them without having to physically go to your building. You can also give your employees digital keys and receive notifications when your building has been accessed. This will allow you to monitor the building even when you’re away from town on a business trip, for instance.

Did you have an employee unexpectedly leave the business? You can easily revoke access remotely as well. At just the touch of a button, you can lock and unlock, and track your building even when you’re far away.

Are you ready to upgrade your building locks to a keyless entry system? Unsure which is the right option? Harry’s Locksmith is here for you. We want to help you find the perfect balance between security and convenience. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other and we’ll make sure you don’t have to. Give us a call and we’ll assess your building needs so that we can unlock the right solutions.
