Types of Locks in the Dallas Market

There are many different types of locks in the Dallas market, and Delta Locksmith professionals and their network of licensed affiliates work with them all.

Deadbolts are one of the most common types of locks that both home and commercial property owners have installed. These are normally installed on doors leading to the outside. There are a few different types one can choose from. These include single, double, and lockable thumb turn. Most homes in the Dallas area use single cylinder deadbolts. A double cylinder deadbolt provides more security since on both the inside and outside of the door, the only way to unlock it is with a key. This necessitates leaving a key on the inside, especially in residential buildings. This can, of course, pose potential problems in the event of an emergency. A better solution is lockable. This lock has a thumb turn on the inside of the door and a keyhole on the outside. However, the thumb turn is lockable. Thus, this type of lock is something of a hybrid between the single and double cylinder locks. It provides the benefits of both, without the drawbacks of either.

Another type of common locks found in the market in Dallas is the knob lock. These are used in residential areas of all types. They are usually used indoors. Most security professionals do not recommend using a knob lock on an external door. This is due to the fact that the locking mechanism is within the knob itself. They can, therefore, be broken easily!

Lever handle locks are very similar to knob locks but are usually found in commercial locations. However, it should be noted that these can sometimes be easier to open than knob locks. This is because they have a push down handle. They are susceptible to breaking if a thief (or someone else intent on entering) uses large amounts of pressure on the handle.
