A resident from Falls Church, VA, reached out to MacArthur Locks & Doors for a residential locksmith service on their front door. They were looking for a particular door lock that matched their wooden carved door. At the same time, they wanted to provide added security for their home as they are living with vulnerable children. We educated them about our selection and let them choose their preferred door lock. The next day, they called us again to schedule the door lock installation. Our locksmith wasted no time and got started. We installed the front door lock with a multipoint locking system in a matte gold finish. Our locksmith finished the work in no time, and the homeowner was very pleased with the outcome.
As concerns about home invasions continue to rise, more and more homeowners are taking action to ensure the safety of their homes. Installing a multipoint locking system on your doors is one of the most proven ways to deter criminals and protect your family. MacArthur Locks & Doors will help you grasp a bit more about this type of door lock.
A three-point lock, sometimes called a multipoint lock, uses three bolts at various points to lock and secure the door. Each bolt will emerge from the door: at the top, bottom, and side (just like in any regular deadbolt). Next, pull the door lever up to lock everything in place, engaging all the bolts and locking the door. This lock system makes it much harder for burglars to break in. They would need to force several points to open the door simultaneously.
Different types of doors call for different types of locks. Therefore, it is important to know which kind of door you have before installing a lock. For example, multipoint locks are available for hinged and sliding doors. However, the installation process differs depending on the door type.
In some cases, installing a multipoint lock after the door has been fabricated may not be possible. Avoid any issues by asking one of our residential locksmiths at MacArthur Locks & Doors. We can look at your door and see if it can accommodate multipoint locks.
Multiple locking systems have many benefits, including additional security for your doors and windows. These systems are built into doors and windows at least three different points, making it much more difficult for someone to break in. That makes them ideal for tall doors and windows and provides homeowners peace of mind. Plus, since they are discreetly built in, they do not ruin the appearance of your window or door. Overall, there is no visual impact on your home's appearance. However, they can be more aesthetically pleasing than a standard locking system.
A multipoint locking system is also a great way to keep your door tightly sealed and draft-free. These systems create a much more secure seal with three separate contact points than traditional single-point locks. So a multipoint locking system is ideal for keeping the cold out or your home safe.
Did you know that having a multipoint locking system could lead to lower insurance rates? Insurance companies recognize that multipoint locking systems provide superior home invasion protection over conventional deadbolts. Therefore, the options available to you from your insurance options may be better if you have a multipoint lock entry system for your residence or place of business.
