There are many stages a Locksmith must go threw to become a certified Locksmith. The basics consist of residential lock installations and emergency locksmith service but extend far beyond the realm of basic locksmith work that we see day to day. Residential Locksmith work requires more then the installation of a cylinder. The company that provides Brooklyn locksmith service must be capable of installing numerous security products and hardware but more importantly must seek out locations on the property that have a weakness in security.
The first line of defense are Strong Doors and Frames. You must have a sturdy frame made of concrete and steel or aluminum. This is to ensure a solid foundation that cannot be forcefully opened.
Locks are your second line of defense when securing your entry way. They must be high security locks. This will prevent any attempted manipulation of the inner pins via Lock Picks or Bump Keys. They are designed to be difficult to penetrate and are a great deterrent. Criminals want easy prey especially if they are not singling out a specific target. So if properly secured you can lower your odds of being victomized.
Window Gates are are a necessity and are recommended to anyone that has a ground floor window or a fire escape leading to a window of an apartment. They prevent many robberies and home invasions. As a company that offers Brooklyn Locksmith Service we recommend window gates that are fire rated and approved by the New York City Fire Department. They will usually have a sticker that specifies there approval via the abbreviation ( FDNY ). One company that we like is Kendi Iron Works. They have an excellent product which they have patented that locks and unlocks the window gates without springs in the lock mechanism. In a nut shell it is virtually indestructible in a fire due to the lack of springs and the possibility that springs can pop out of place during intense heat.
Commercial Locksmith work is described by some as a Locksmith that works in office buildings but the reality is the spectrum is so broad that it can be very difficult to define a Commercial Locksmith. Specific property types will have specific applications that will only apply to that particular scenario. Meaning a hospital will not incorporate the same type of locks and security hardware as a New York City public School. As a matter of fact they have different guidelines in regards to the types of locks that can be installed, so in most cases by law what they are able to incorporate is defined prior to the property being built.
When a Brooklyn Locksmith Service incorporates commercial Locksmith work into there arsenal of Locksmith services they will have an extensive knowledge of
Cabinet & Showcase case locks
Coded and Push Button locks
ICU Cylinders ( Interchangeable Core )
Emergency Exit Devices ( DETEX )
Roll Down Gates
