Types of door locks
Electronic door locks
The electromagnetic lock is one of the most common and most popular currently available as, if we’re honest, it is a lock that offers it all.
The lock itself works as the large electromagnet meets the armature plate, securing the door in place.
The good news is these locks are straightforward to install and offer a high level of intruder resistance. They also work well if you want to introduce a security code or card system on the control reader, releasing the magnet when the right card is swiped with the door opening on request.
You will also find electromagnetic doors used alongside push to exit button doors, making it easier and simpler on internal door applications.
An electric strike release solution is also a type of electronic door lock that is easy to install and, again, is designed to work alongside card readers or keypads. Here the system will receive a message that a valid card or pin has been used and the electric strike release then allows the door to be opened. You can also use this particular locking solution alongside night latches, deadbolts, and sash locks.
Electric motorised multipoint locks are growing in popularity as they offer a great locking solution for UPVC doors and are now suitable for wooden composite doors, too, offering a heightened degree of security.
As part of your overall locking solution, you will also find available overhead door closers powered by a motor to aid door assistance. This type of system is suitable for both single and double doors. Ultimately electric door openers make opening and closing doors easy, making them convenient for business and sometimes essential!
When it comes to door locks suitable for your business, an initial site survey and risk assessment should be carried out to assess all areas and all requirements.
For example, what type of door would be most suitable in an emergency or fire? Does it need to be freely opened? Are they part of an emergency exit? Do certain doors need to be closed at all times, etc.?

Types of door locks
The benefits of operating a card security lock system are that it helps to keep security simple. Card readers also allow you, as the business owner, to record who is coming in and out of the building at any time.
For internal doors with card readers, you can also restrict access to certain areas and set specific times that the cards will work.
All of these measures help you to increase security and reduce the risk of theft.
You can also operate card reader systems with a master card to provide you with access to all areas and all doors.
Note: Only those authorised have access to the classified information included in key codes and key cards.
The benefit of introducing a keypad lock into your business is that it offers owners a high degree of flexibility. For example, you can set different codes for individuals and teams. You can also change codes and limit access to users where appropriate. Similar to key cards, you can also monitor securely who is coming in and out of the building and accessing what areas at what times.
Most keypad locks also aren’t hard-wired, which helps reduce expenses and allows you to still access areas even during power outages (batteries can easily be replaced).
In case of emergencies, you can also override these systems with ease.
Whether you’re looking to consolidate keys for just a few doors, or you need to manage and organise keys and locks for a big business. Having a master key system is vital in allowing you to access all areas in case of emergency, and of course, it stops you from searching through a vast keyring of keys just to find the right one!
Note: Master key systems can also be integrated with any electronic hardware.
Biometric entry solutions are fast becoming a popular locking solution for high-tech, high-value businesses who need to increase their security and protect their most valuable assets. Fingerprint security solutions are a great, innovative door locking system for businesses looking for something different.

How a lock is relayed
When we re-key an electric door lock, we only change the lock’s mechanical mechanism, preventing old keys and cards, etc. working in the new lock. We then completely reset the lock with a new key and access information.
No hardware is replaced with a re-key as it is only the internal component that is modified.
We’d recommend having your locks re-keyed in situations when keys are returned, lost, or stolen. You need multiple locks to ideally work with the same key. You have a new tenant moving in, or maybe you have a new cleaning company starting, a new building owner, etc.
At UK Red Security, we can design key systems that match your current hardware, customising solutions to meet your requirements.
