Fire, Security & Life Safety Systems
Locksmiths do far more than just help you when you get locked out of a building. If you are responsible for commercial premises, a locksmith may be needed to help with all of your locks, including things like digital locks and security systems.
Working across Yorkshire, our locksmiths can help with all aspects of your business security systems, including helping in an emergency situation such as a lockout.
What is a Commercial Locksmith?
A commercial locksmith is a trained professional who specialises in the installation, maintenance, and repair of commercial door locks and other security devices. A commercial door locksmith may have more experience with large buildings and systems like digital locks and keycards.
Commercial locksmiths can help you with all aspects of your commercial door lock needs, including installing new locks, repairing or replacing existing locks, and even providing help if you should get locked out.
Commercial Locksmith Services
Commercial locksmiths can provide you with the very basics such as key cutting, changing the locks on a building, or helping us if we get locked out. However, these are just some of the services offered. Commercial locksmiths can help with much more than the basics.
Lock and Key Repair or Replacement
One of the most common commercial locksmith services is repairing or replacing a commercial door lock. If you have an issue with a lock, it is important to get it fixed as soon as possible so that your business is not put at risk.
New Lock Installation
A commercial locksmith can also help you to install new door locks. This might be something that you need if you are moving into new premises or if you want to upgrade the security of your existing property.
Master Key Systems
Another commercial locksmith service that can be extremely useful for businesses is the installation of a master key system. This type of system allows you to have one key that will open all of the doors in your premises.
This can be extremely useful if you have a lot of employees or if you need to give access to different parts of your building to different people.
Upgraded Security Systems
As well as commercial door locks, commercial locksmiths can also help you to upgrade your security system. This might include things like installing digital locks or keycard systems.
If you should ever find yourself locked out of your commercial premises, a commercial locksmith can help you to get back in. This is one of the most common services that commercial locksmiths provide.
If you lose the keys to your commercial premises, a commercial locksmith can help you to get replacement keys cut. This is an important service as it means that you do not have to worry about getting locked out of your own property.
If you need more than one set of keys for your commercial premises, a commercial locksmith can help you to get them duplicated.
When You Might Need a Locksmith
There are all sorts of reasons why you might need the services of a commercial locksmith. As well as the services that we have already mentioned, commercial locksmiths can also help with things like safe installation and repair, security system maintenance, and even providing keyless entry systems.

They will usually check your photo ID but also ask for a bill that shows the name and address of the property they are letting you into. It is a good idea to have proof that you are leasing the property, or that you are the owner of the premises.
There is no regulation in the industry which means that choosing a commercial locksmith wisely is crucial. Check the reviews and only work with recommended companies.
