Why would you invest in a maglock?
In the recent days, maglocks have gained much popularity as a good option to control access as well as spice up security in both residential and commercial property. Different from the traditional locks, a maglock utilizes a strong electromagnet force to keep doors, hidden compartments, and gates locked.
• No more lost keys
One of the reasons why you would consider maglock installation on your property is that the lock is either operated by an electrical security system, a keypad security system, card readers, or scanners, rather than keys.
On that account, maglock installation would be an appropriate alternative if you have been finding it hard to keep your door’s keys safe. Furthermore, the keyless entry saves you from fidgeting at the door or gate while you wait for somebody to open it.
• Maglock installation let you control access to your premises
Besides saving you from the challenge of losing keys, a maglock installation would also be an efficient way to regulate access to premises. For instance, the lock can be integrated with a fingerprint scanner or card reader to let in/ out authorized people while restricting access to unauthorized ones.
In addition to the selective access control, the lock integrated with a fingerprint scanner or card reader can let you monitor important access details like the person who entered a certain restricted area as well as the time he or she gained access. This feature makes it a good lock for securing an area with valuable items and or information.
• Prevent strangers to access
Strangers can easily find their way into your premises if you use the traditional lock and you forget to lock it when you enter or exit your premises. Unlike these conventional locks, you can program your maglock to lock itself securely once you enter or exit an area. As a result, only an authorized person can open a door for any stranger.
• You Can Choose The Locking Power You Want Or Tailor It To Meet Your Specific Security Needs
The market offers an array of maglocks that differ depending on the amount of locking force. For instance, a maglock that is rated 1200 pounds can withstand an equivalent amount of force before anyone can break through. These variations in force give you the freedom to choose a lock whose locking force suits into your security needs.
Besides the variations in locking force, you can also customize the lock by merging your maglock installation with a buzzer alarm, a bond sensor, a relocking time delay, or any other feature that can enhance your security and convenience.
• Maglock installation reduces costs arising from break-ins and damage or theft
Ideally, you can lose thousands to millions of dollars when somebody breaks into your property. Besides losing your valuables, a break-in or robbery also comes accompanied with unexpected costs like replacing your locks, repairing broken items, cleaning up the mess left behind by the burglar, and many other associated costs.
Replacing your traditional locks with maglocks could be an excellent way to protect yourself from such misfortunes because the maglocks provide a powerful locking force. The maglock is also virtually resistant to conventional attacks since a burglar can hardly access the locking components.
Furthermore, maglock installation would be a genius way to reduce the cost of damaged locks since they are constructed to defy multiple blows, and they lack movable parts that can break if your door or gate is forced open by a crowbar.
• Maglock installation is ideal for emergency exits
Different from the traditional locks that use a mechanical latch bolt to lock or unlock an emergency exit, maglocks use an electromagnetic force that locks an exit automatically when supplied with power and unlocks it when the power is cut off. This function eliminates the issues whereby an emergency door fails because of a mechanical failure.
• Straightforward installation
The ease of installation is another reason why you would want to purchase a magnetic lock for your door or gate. Installing a magnetic lock is quite straightforward because it does not require mortising, or door modifications. In fact, the installation process is as simple as installing a Z bracket on an in-swinging door.
Where can you buy maglocks for your door?
As we noted above, there are multiple maglocks sold in hardware stores out there. Some of these magnetic locks deliver the benefits discussed above, while substandard ones may not. If you want to avoid the latter type of locks, we suggest that you purchase your maglock directly from the manufacturer or a reputable store.
