Store owners lose more than $44 billion annually due to products being stolen from the shelves. More importantly, 41% of these thefts are executed by employees of the business. The problem is most of the keys can be easily duplicated and owners have the hardest time keeping up with how many keys are out there and who has them. Our Myrtle Beach high security locks can help a business owner prevent these unauthorized entries and stealing of merchandise.
High security keys are patented or otherwise restricted, which means one is forbidden to distribute key blanks and you need special equipment to duplicate these keys. Equipment like this is found in some professional locksmith facilities but even then you need written permission from a company’s owner to duplicate a high security key.
Our Myrtle Beach high security locks are mostly made by Medeco, which is the leader in the industry providing the highest quality and the largest selection of locks, including lock cylinders, cam locks, and padlocks. If your facility is using another well-known brand of locks like Schlage, you’ll be happy to know Coastal Contract Hardware is the only Schlage Primus key center in the state.
Myrtle Beach High Security Locks Prevent Burglaries
According to Consumer Reports Magazine (June 2011), high security locks are virtually impossible to break. When comparing to some of the best deadbolts on the market, high security locks by Medeco can’t be broken even with strong kicks. This is quite unnerving for an average homeowner since most home break-ins involve kick-ins.
Furthermore, when using a drill most standard locks will be defeated in less than 2 minutes. Our Myrtle Beach high security locks have special hardened cylinders, which under extreme pressure and drilling will get damaged but won’t allow the doors to be unlocked keeping your valuables secure.
High security keys also have a special side bar feature which makes them highly pick resistant. Additionally, rotating tumbler pins and tight tolerances make these locks completely bump resistant.
