Turn to us for quality deadbolts that provide the security you need for your home or business.
One of the questions we get here at Eastway Lock & Key, Inc. is whether deadbolts really do provide added security for a home or business in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. The answer is – it depends. The combination of budget-grade hardware and a less-than-secure door doesn’t work in terms of giving you added protection. While any door and deadbolt system is better than none at all, if your goal is optimal security, we suggest investing in quality hardware installed by a professional.
We have more than 40 years of experience with deadbolts and other security options that will make your home or business more secure. There are three main types of deadbolts to consider:
- Single Cylinder Deadbolts – This type requires a key to engage/disengage the lock only on one side. It is recommended for situations where you want to be able to exit without needing a key in hand.
- Double Cylinder Deadbolts – With this type, you need a key on both sides of the door. This is recommended for doors that have glass in them where a criminal could simply break the glass and reach in to disengage the lock if it didn’t need a key. The drawback of this type of deadbolt is it can hinder escape in an emergency situation. Many that have this style keep the key in the lock, but that obviously defeats the purpose.
- Keyless Cylinder Deadbolts – Forget about keys entirely with deadbolts that are operated with a passcode or fingerprint scan.
