Businesses have much different needs than most homes do. Far more people come and go every day, meaning that your business’s doors see a lot of action. Yet just like at your home, security and safety remain top priorities. The only difference comes with what tools you use and how you implement them. Your business needs our professional services that your home likely doesn’t, including the following.
- 24/7 emergency service including lockout calls
- Mailbox locks
- Commercial door installation, including door closers
While you may not need all of these services for your business, you will at least want to consider their application. In those instances, professional installation may cost more up front, but in the long run you will save money by ensuring that everything works properly, helping to secure your business.
What are commercial door closers?
You’ve no doubt seen commercial door closers in most of the businesses you’ve visited. This hardware mounts on top of the door frame and the door itself, and automatically closes and latches the door after anyone opens it. On the surface, it’s a simple piece of machinery, but we recommend having one professionally installed for your business.
Unless you find the right door closer for your installation, you can start having problems immediately. Your door can slam shut too quickly if you install a door closer that has too much power. If it isn’t strong enough however, your door may not close or latch properly. Without proper closure, your door isn’t secure and your business will also suffer from inefficient heating and cooling.
Why professional installation is important?
A professional installer, like the locksmiths at 469Locksmith, can consider all the factors when it comes to finding the right commercial door closer for your needs. Strength, size, mounting technique and even appearance are all important. If you need a closer installed on a fire-rated door, the closer must also be adequately fire-rated, and a good locksmith will only install an appropriate device.
