Hotel door locks are a vital part of your hotel security. And they are definitely not a one-size-fits-all item, as hospitality management professionals know. Locks serve different purposes in different areas. Many hotels now use key cards to access guest rooms. The quality of the physical lock itself must be high, and fitted so only the guest (or hotel personnel) can open it. For other areas, such as management offices or liquor cabinets, use of unique physical keys may be desired. For areas where many different users need an entrance, locks may be machined for the same key. Extra security may require covered lock-out locks for some areas. Here are some important components of good lock security:
Dead Bolt Locks
A good deadbolt lock like Kwik-Set features a full inch throw and meets ANSI Grade 2 and Federal specifications. It has a hardened steel roller to prevent sawing or cutting through the bolt. The thumbpiece turns units for easy lock operation. A steel strike plate reinforcer with 3-inch screws ensures penetration into wall studs.
Lever Style Lock Sets
The Schlage lever style lock set is ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant and meets or exceeds BHMA (Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association) /ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standards. These locks can be master keyed or keyed alike and can even be mounted on either right or left-hand doors.
Door Flip Guards
Door Flip Guards prevent intrusion even when the door isn’t locked. They close when the door does and prevent door damage. They add an extra level of security.
Swinging Door Bar Guards
These guards offer a latch for extra security. Employees equipped with the Security Latch Opener can still gain entrance to the room in case of emergency, however.
