What is the most Secure Type Lock lock?
Secure Type Lock ,Are you looking for a new lock for your home or business? Do you need extra security? Are you asking yourself: “Do I need a lock on my garage door?”
These questions could be said of a home front door lock or an office front door lock. We all want to be as safe and secure as possible — and the lock we choose for the many doors that give access to our homes matters for the future.
If you are asking whether you need a new lock and if you have chosen the most secure lock for your home or office, then we are hear to help.
At High Gate Doors, we recommend the dead bolt as the most secure type of lock for your front door. Locks are rated by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and “Grade 1” is the very best. A “Grade 1” deadbolt can withstand 10 strikes by a hammer and 250,000 test cycles. When you pair a deadbolt with a keyed knob — known as an entry lockset or handleset — then you have the strongest lock system beyond putting steel bars across your door!
The best attribute of a deadbolt is that it is inexpensive yet steely strong, so you can rest easy throughout the day an night knowing that your doors are safe and nearly impenetrable.
What’s important to remember when looking into the right deadbolt or handleset for your home or office is that the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grades locks based upon the ability to withstand a break-in, but even a “Grade 3” lock is going to be strong. In fact, many residential homes use “Grade 3” deadbolts on their front doors, while most commercial buildings use “Grade 2.”
A “Grade 3” deadbolt can withstand two hammer strikes, while a “Grade 2” can withstand five strikes.
As you look for your secure deadbolt for your exterior doors, consider the following:
- Grade from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
- Size that works with your door fittings
With just a little research, you can find the lock that works for your security situation and install it quickly — in just a few hours or less. From there, it’s all about peace of mind and feeling safe in your home.
