Access Control Lake Norman

Security comes in strength; you’re only as secure as you are strong!  That’s why we always recommend Crimsafe Screens for access control.  Their International Patents mean that other stainless steel mesh security screen products in this category simply can’t feature the same design or offer the same strength!

Impact Resistance

When violently struck with a blunt object, strength and integrity are put to the test.  Our Crimsafe Screens repel any physical assault a potential intruder could possibly impale upon it.  There are no other steel mesh window screens with the impact resistance the Crimsafe product provides.  In addition to outstanding impact resistance, Crimsafe screens also have excellent cutting resistance quality.

Tested and Proven

Below is a video where racing legend, Dick Johnson describes the testing performed on the Crimsafe screens.  The testing was done at the University of NSW at the Australian Defense Force Academy and proves that the Crimsafe screens can withstand impacts up to 12 times more than level required by the Australian Standard for Security Screens.  The screens were tested and passed numerous levels of rigorousness unprecedented in the security screen industry.  Notice also how other security screens failed those same tests.

Door & Lock Replacement

Being a locksmith also requires numerous skill sets that often go overlooked, such as a carpenter.  There is a certain level of carpentry skills necessary in some situations we encounter; replacing doors is occasionally one of them.  By no means are we seeking carpentry work, actually we much prefer to refer that to one of our colleagues.

There are numerous reasons to replace an interior or exterior door, regardless we are here to ensure the integrity and security of that door, especially the exterior ones.  Older damaged doors are our most common call, typically for one of our Realtor friends seeking to improve the value of some rental property.

New exterior doors will improve a home’s value and apply greater curb appeal.  When upgrading or replacing exterior doors, we keep several items in mind.  From architectural style to interesting specifics like a knocker or ornamental glass, there are several methods to create a grand entrance from an existing doorway.

Locks are another aspect of the door.  Replacing or rekeying locks is a major portion of our daily lives and we have tons of experience with every manufacturer of door locks.  Often times new homeowners are seeking to renovate their home in small steps, a new door is an immediate improvement in aesthetics and security.  The entrance door has an incredible array of styles and several material options:

  1. Steel
  2. Hand Carved Wood
  3. Fiberglass

Regardless of the amenities, we can repair or replace your entrance door for whatever reason necessary.  Our mobile locksmith units have all the tools and technology on hand to enable us to get the job done right and on time!

Home Security Window Screens

Crimsafe Window Screens
Crimsafe Window Screens

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!  Watch this Crimsafe video on their Dynamic Impact Test:

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.
