Dead Bolts Toronto, Fare Pricing And 2 Year Guarantee
A dead bolt or dead lock (also deadbolt), is a locking mechanism distinct from a spring bolt lock because a deadbolt cannot be moved to the open position except by rotating the lock cylinder. The more common spring bolt lock uses a spring to hold the bolt in place, allowing retraction by applying force to the bolt itself. A deadbolt can therefore make a door more resistant to entry without the correct key.
Other types of deadbolts include:
- Single Cylinder with removable thumb-turn
- Classroom Function (thumb-turn only unlocks door)
- Exit Only Function (no external cylinder)
- Push-button Deadbolt (mechanical or electrical)
How to Choose a Deadbolt Lock?
ANSI Grade 1?
ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. ANSI is a non-profit group that follows the development of standards for a variety of industries and products, for a deadbolt to be considered professional grade, it must meet the ANSI Grade 1 specification. This means that the deadbolt
- Has been tested to 250,000 open/close cycles
- Has a bolt that projects 1 inch into the door frame
- Can withstand 10 hammer blows without giving way
Greater Locksmith Toronto offers various grades of deadbolts to fulfill your security needs.
Double or Single Cylinder?
Deadbolts come in double and single cylinder types. A double cylinder deadbolt requires a key to operate the deadbolt from both sides of the door. A single cylinder deadbolt can be closed and open from inside by a thumb turn.
A double cylinder deadbolt provides a better security, specially in doors that have a glass on them or a nearby a window. In case of a singe cylinder bolt is installed exist the possibility of breaking the window and unlocking the door from the inside.
The problem with double deadbolt is that you may find your self locked inside the house in an emergency situation if you don’t have you keys handy.
