MEASURING THE OPTIONS
Once you’ve decided what type of lock will make you most comfortable, we’ll help you choose the lock that correctly  ts your door. The size, thickness, and weight of your door; the material and measurements of the door frame; and ultimately the type of lock you choose; all contribute to the security level that is achieved. Before you visit our showroom, make a note of the material of the door and its dimensions. We can help you choose the assembly that matches your needs, and assist with templating so that you can feel con dent that your lock is installed with accuracy and ease.
THE LOOK OF LOCKS
Locks certainly serve a primary purpose of function, but they can contribute to the overall appearance of your home as well. Door knobs or pulls can have a traditional look, or can help create an industrial, formal, rustic, or minimalist look to match your personality!
SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY
Entry doors and interior doors—and their hardware—can make your home more secure, more visually appealing, and more ef cient, all adding value to your home. Our showroom specialists can help you choose the lock that makes you feel secure, and looks great doing so.
Technology-enabled locks and cameras can help you feel secure even when you’re away from home. You can check that your locks are engaged from your of ce, see who’s knocking at the door while out to dinner, or utilize keyless entry features to unlock the door while still in your car. Illuminated cylinders help you match the key to the lock in the dark, and wireless remotes can unlock the door using proximity sensors right from your pocket. If your home is equipped with smart technology—or if you’d like it to be—just mention it to your consultant for expert advice.
