Here at A. L. Odom Locksmiths, Inc., we know your business is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. As you can imagine, most of the ways we can help you improve your business have to do with locks and security–for example, we offer high-quality security door locks and installation services to help you keep potential intruders out of your facility. In this article, we’ll go over some of the features that make our security door locks so effective, so you have a better idea of how they protect your property.

Features of Effective Security Door Locks

  • Pick Resistance- Our security door locks are designed to be resistant to any attempts at lockpicking. When evaluating pick resistance, the best measure of effectiveness is how long it has taken anyone to successfully pick that particular model of lock–if it takes years for determined lockpicks to crack that lock, or if no one yet has, then the lock is highly secure.
  • Drill Resistance- Another key factor in the design of security door locks is drill resistance. After all, why bother picking the tumblers when you could much more easily drill a hole through the lock? Our locks are made of hardened metal that will make it much harder to subvert your security measures that way.

  • Key Control- In addition to the design of the locks themselves, another thing that goes into making security door locks effective is controlling the keys. Specifically, key control involves taking steps to limit how easy it is to get ahold of the key blanks–the stricter the key control, the lower the likelihood of someone being able to produce duplicates or bump keys.
