At Coastal Contract Hardware, we want to help you do what’s best for your business, and that includes helping you make your facility the best it can be. When it comes to keeping your facility secure, one important feature is your door locks. Traditional keyed locks, however, can prove to be an inconvenience or even a risk if there are too many keys to account for. Instead, you may want to switch to push button locks. In this article, we’ll go over some of the advantages of push button locks to help you decide if they are right for you.
- Convenience- As we mentioned, push button locks offer greater convenience than their keyed counterparts. Even if you’re careful, you’ve probably still misplaced your keys at least once and can remember how frustrating that situation was. For those who are prone to losing their keys, push button locks are an even bigger relief, as now they can access their workplace by simply punching in the right code. If this sounds like something you want to try, we encourage you to give us a call.
- Security- The other main benefit of push button locks is, of course, the increased security that they provide. Because there are no keys, it’s impossible for those keys to fall into the wrong hands, so you and your team can have greater peace of mind. In addition, many push button locks offer a lockout feature that will kick in after a certain number of incorrect attempts at the passcode, adding even more protection to the already reliable bolts.
