Reasons for Installing High Security Locks in Your Broomfield CO Home
Recent statistics show that home and business burglary is still one of the most common crimes committed in the U.S. According to the FBI, in 2012 alone, over 2 million homes and business properties were burglarized. In most cases, a deadbolt lock is your first line of defense against a possible break-in.
Unfortunately, recent advances in technology have provided thieves with the ability to crack traditional deadbolt locks more easily than ever before; leaving your home more vulnerable to these types of crimes. This being said, the traditional deadbolt lock may no longer provide the safety and security it was intended for.
In an effort to make your home or business more secure, locksmiths encourage home and business owners alike to implement high security lock technology. These types of locks are specially designed to withstand heavy “attacks” which can include a direct assault of inner lock mechanisms. The locks can range from electrical to mechanical or be a combination of both. In either case, these locks employ tougher more durable mechanisms than traditional pin tumbler deadbolt lock systems.
In order for high security locks to operate to their fullest potential, it is highly recommended they are installed and maintained by a professional locksmith. This installation will often be backed by a guarantee.
