Oftentimes when there’s been a security breach or a need for quick personnel restructuring, most facility managers will contact a locksmith to change the locks on the building. Professional Locksmiths have the skillset and tools to remove and replace locks on your facility. But what happens when something goes wrong in the middle of the night and you don’t want to wait for a locksmith? Today we are going to answer the question “How can I rekey my door without a locksmith?” At Loc-Doc Security, Our Mission is to help you protect your people and your property. We continue to share information like this to help you be informed so you can know the best solutions for the security of your property.
We’ve referenced what an interchangeable core is in previous articles. Take a minute to refresh your memory by clicking on the link to the previous article. Interchangeable cores work well in Restaurants, Retail Environments, and other facilities that may have rapid turnover. By having a designated controller, which could be a facility manager, restaurateur or manager onsite, you can swap the lock easily by using a control key to remove the core and replace it with a different one. This takes seconds to implement and is simple for anyone with the control key to complete!
Here is how implementing Interchangeable Cores can benefit your business! Rapid Response: When someone loses a key, responding quickly can keep your facility secure! With no wait time or scheduling delays, you can easily change the locks yourself and distribute the keys immediately. Saves You Money: Interchangeable cores can save you time and money. The expense that can come with rekeying a suite or floor is quickly minimized with the simple task of replacing the interchangeable core. It also saves time with the rapidity of being able to swap out the cores. We all know that time is money so a huge benefit is the ability to get back to business without delays. Masterkey Friendly: We’ve discussed Masterkey systems in previous articles, but Interchangeable cores can be integrated to a master key system. This means that if there is a lost key, it can be changed at the master key level without requiring the other level of keys to be changed! Using Interchangeable cores at your facility can help you manage your building easily! Using a control key, they can be easily added and just as easily removed without the need for a professional locksmith call. Storing replacement cores on-site can help you immediately respond to any security issues without delay.
