Whatever the weather, we rely on locks to control access to our property. But changes in the weather put a lot of strain on external locks and access control systems. There are many factors that can compromise a lock’s performance and lifespan, here are three to look out for:
To make sure locks don’t let us down and compromise access to your business or home, we must take care of them. Here are four tips for maintaining healthy locks:
If your lock is beyond maintenance and really needs replacing, keyless mechanical locks provide a simple but effective access solution. Ideal for frequent and constant use, keyless mechanical locks are robust, flexible and well suited to high traffic and varied weather conditions. Pushbutton functionality eliminates the need for keys, removing a potential entry point for debris or rain. This helps to keep maintenance and upkeep of the lock to a minimum.
If you’re looking for an extra level of protection on the access door to your building – especially for harsh environments – the Marine by Codelocks range is ideal. Codelocks has taken its easy-to-use core range of mechanical locks and given them a tougher, more robust exterior.
Designed to resist exposure to moisture and help to prevent damage caused by corroding, the Marine by Codelocks range offers reliable and flexible access control. The newest member of the Marine range is the CL600. It allows customers to choose between knob or lever handles, it has a key override function and on-the-door code changes. All locks in the Marine by Codelocks range are salt spray tested – performing 1000 hours* – and as an added bonus the protective coating provides a sleek, black finish.
There can be few higher recommendations for a lock than when it is chosen by a security specialist to protect its own property. CES, a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic access control systems for public and industrial buildings, was looking for a robust and reliable lock to secure its warehouse, located on the River Medway.
Codelocks recommended its CL515 Mortice Latch Black Marine Grade finish lock. Mario Del-Signore, managing director at CES UK said, “The CL515 MG is a solid and robust product. You can feel the quality just by pressing the buttons. It is far superior to what I’ve seen in the marketplace and this aligns with our CES products. We sell quality products here, so we want quality products on our own door too.”
So, if you’re looking for a way to control access to your property, come rain or shine, choose Marine by Codelocks.
