High-security locks are definitely something worth serious consideration for your Boston business or private residence. There are several benefits you get with high-security locks that you don’t with standard locks.
Most standard locks are pin tumbler locks, which have wheels inside of a lock cylinder with pins. The key is then cut to match the pins in the lock. The more pins in the lock, the more cuts you will need in the key. Obviously, the fewer pins, the fewer cuts you need in the key.
A lock with fewer pins is easier to open because a bump key can more easily fit in the lock cylinder and it takes less skill to pick such a lock.
Most standard locks have four or five pins while high-security locks have six or seven pins. But this isn’t the only reason to consider them. A thief might skip trying to break into a place with high-security locks for psychological reasons. They might think if a business or home has high-security locks, they surely have other security systems in place. So high-security locks offer a psychological deterrence.

Master Key Systems
A master key system is a locking system in which one key can unlock multiple locks that are all keyed differently. Basically, each lock in the system has its own key that can unlock only that particular lock, but there is a master key that unlocks all the locks in the system.
Say you own an apartment complex with 10 units. Each apartment will have a different lock and key that fits only that particular unit. You have a master key that fits all 10 units.
Master locks are also used in office buildings that have multiple rooms with different locks and keys. In this type of scenario, supervisors might have a master key that fits all of the offices. This simply means that people belonging to a certain office will have a key that fits that office.
If you need a master key system or any other expert lock services, Locksmiths Boston is here to help.
Push and Panic Bars
In times of danger, having quick exit points from a building is essential to creating a safe environment.
A panic or push bar is a door locking device consisting of a spring-loaded metal bar fixed horizontally on the inside of an exit door. When this bar is pushed, the latch is immediately released and the door then opens outward. The push bar allows a door to be opened very quickly and easily.
Without such a device, panicked crowds may find it difficult escaping a dangerous situation.
Panic bars can be used on single or double doors made from aluminum, wood and even glass. Panic bars are required by law on all fire and emergency doors.
