We support and install Crimsafe security screens for 1 simple reason…THEY WORK! “Often Imitated, but Never Duplicated” is a term that applies very well to the Crimsafe product line. They have patented such a remarkable product that it was inevitable that other security product manufacturers would attempt to replicate it, but those attempts failed miserably, especially in the quality department.
Why is Crimsafe the best home security screens available? Simple, it’s all in the design or shall I say the quality of the materials and the design. Crimsafe is the only security screen product where the mesh is screwed into the frame and clamped down with a patented device called the “Screw-Clamp™ “. Most other security screen mesh systems are held in place with a wedge or glue.
Attempts to break through a Crimsafe home security screen by physically trying to knock it out of the frame will not work because the screws are drilled through the steel mesh screen and into the other side of the frame with enough torque that their patented Screw-Clamp™ bites into the mesh screen to form a near unbreakable hold.
When we install Crimsafe window and door screens on 1st floor entry points of a home, it literally becomes a fortress!
If you are considering access control via your windows, doors or other home entry points, call me personally or stop by our showroom for a demonstration of the Crimsafe line of products.
Rekeying and lock replacement, although often envisioned to be the same, are much different processes and should be used in different circumstances. Here I will outline the differences in each of these processes, and explain a situation where each one would work.
Rekeying is a matter of completely reconfiguring the tumbler, which is the internal structure of the lock. Locks work through a network of internal pins and openings; only a set and very specific aligning of these will cause the tumbler to decompress and unlock. Rekeying is done without having to replace the existing lock. The pins and openings of the lock structure are placed in a new order specific to a new key, while maintining the appearance of your door. Old keys will be useless, and only the new key provided to you will work.
Lock replacement is done by completely removing the entire lock structure and replacing it with a new one. There is a large variety of different lock types to choose from, including electronic options. Replacing a lock needs to be done precisely, and so is best handled by a professional.
