Melville, New York (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
Locksmith Melville is pleased to announce it has recently completed an order to modernize security at a local nursery school. The Long Island locksmith professional installed interchangeable core locking mechanisms to replace and upgrade the school's existing outdated locks.
Interchangeable core locks provide a great deal of flexibility when it comes to managing the keyed locks in a building or complex. The lock has a removable core which houses the key cylinder and can be swapped out when necessary. Interchangeable core locks are popular with medium and large-scale institutional lock users. The locks offer a great deal of resistance against manipulation and forceful attack, support large master key systems, are of generally good quality, and are available for a wide range of lock configurations.
One of the most important features of these cylinders is the ease with which they can be managed. A special control key unlocks and allows removal from the front of the lock of the core, which contains the keyway and pins. New cores can be swapped in and out as required, without the need for tools or special locksmithing skills. Most users keep on hand a supply of extra cores that are rotated through to support routine re-keying.
Interchangeable cores address common security concerns such as preventing access when a key has been lost or stolen, resetting doors or gates with different locks to limit access and securing a building after temporary or terminated employees leave or have completed their obligations. In the event of a key breach, locks can be changed immediately and efficiently by staff rather than having to contact a professional locksmith to repeatedly return to the facility, each time incurring additional locksmith fees. The building owner or landlord only needs to utilize his or her control key to remove the existing core and replace it with an alternate core configuration or keyway. Just like that, security is regained in a matter of minutes! This type of locking system is optimal for a facility such as a nursery school, where the safety of young children is of utmost concern. Issues with prior employees or suspicious visitors or questionable contract workers could compromise the security of the youngsters. Fortunately, management personnel can comfortably change the core of the lock to re-establish a secure facility, putting parents' minds at ease.
An interchangeable core system is just one of the security options offered by Locksmith Melville. For years now, the company has provided Long Island businesses, homeowners and automobile owners a wide array of locksmith services ranging from changing locks and keys to the installation of closed circuit video monitoring systems.
