Security Locks And Keys For Your Home

Security Locks And Keys For Your Home

Security Locks And Keys For Your Home

 

Security Locks And Keys For Your Home, Most security experts agree that a single outer door lock will not provide adequate protection. For example, any tumbler-type lock with an opening for a key also provides an opening large enough for the lock to be picked. Thus, a combination of two different types of locks are recommended.

Here are the most common types of locks used in the home:

Spring Latch Locks: A popular and convenient lock that snaps closed whenever the bevelled latch seats into a striker plate is the spring-latch lock. However, this lock can be easily forced by inserting through the door frame a thin blade or stiff plastic between the latch and the strike plate. Thus, a spring lock should always be augmented by a second lock of a different type.
DeadBolt Locks: The dead bolt lock features a solid, rectangular latch that forms a bolt between the door frame and the door itself. This lock is difficult to force or jimmy and is a good choice as an auxiliary to any other key lock. It’s available for either key operation or manual interior knob.
Barrel-Type Bolt: A barrel-type bolt serves the same function as the dead-bolt lock but is restricted to manual, interior operation only. It may be used with an inexpensive night-latch, and it is difficult to force if it’s well made and installed properly.
Chain Locks: Used as a supplementary interior lock, the welded chain offers a valuable security feature. It permits the user to open a door partially to exchange letters, messages, or small parcels without completely unlocking the door.

For proper mounting, the slide should be installed just above and slanting toward the chain.

Remember, if you have taken possession of a new home or apartment, you should immediately change the pin-tumbler locks on all exterior doors. A registered locksmith can usually alter the previous combination.

Door Closers and Exit Devices

Door Closers and Exit Devices

Door Closers and Exit Devices

All door closer manufacturers make surface mounted door closers specifically for narrow stile aluminum storefront door applications. They also all make adapter plates for installation of their non-specific surface closers in narrow stile aluminum door applications.

Door closers are often installed in the top jam configuration on narrow stile doors. Since the header tube is usually around two inches high, many closers have mounting holes placed vertically only one inch apart.

Parallel arm installation has become more popular in recent years. Because the top rail of an aluminum storefront door is often only three inches high, a drop plate is usually need to make the door closer installation possible.

For more information see Door Closer Basics

Many door closer manufacturers make concealed overhead door closers for use on aluminum storefront applications. The ones I encounter most often are:

  • Dorma RTS88 series
  • Jackson 100 and 300 series
  • LCN 2030 series

To order, you need to know:

  • Door width
  • Interior or exterior door
  • Degree of swing and/or hold open
  • Hold open or non-hold open
  • Double acting or single acting door
  • Finish for cover plates and arms if necessary

 

Exit Devices

Adams Rite

Adams Rite offers a wide variety of exit devices for aluminum storefront doors, including rim, surface vertical rod, concealed vertical rod, and mortise exit devices. Adams Rite is one of the few companies that make a narrow stile surface vertical rod exit device. Some door manufacturers use or have used Adams Rite exit devices as original equipment on their products.

One nice feature of the mortise exit device is that the mortise lock that comes with it is a drop-in replacement for the 4900 or 4510 deadlatch – great to know if you need to replace a latch paddle with an exit device to comply with life safety code.

Doromatic

Doromatic offers rim and concealed vertical rod exit devices for narrow stile aluminum doors. Doromatic exit devices have been used as original equipment by some door manufacturers.

Jackson

Jackson offers rim and concealed vertical rod exit devices for narrow stile aluminum doors. Jackson exit devices have been used as original equipment by some door manufacturers.

Other Manufacturers

Corbin, Sargent, Von Duprin and Yale all offer exit devices usable on aluminum storefront doors. Some manufacturers offer devices that will fit on narrow stile doors, some only make devices that will fit on medium or wide stile doors.

To order, you need to know:

  • Door width
  • Door height
  • Handing
  • Finish
  • Single door or pair of doors

uPVC Doors

uPVC Doors

Why Are uPVC Doors So Great?!

 

Whether you want to replace your front door, back door, garage or interiors doors there are often so many choices of style and material that you don’t know where to begin.

Purchasing a new door is perhaps one of the most important purchases for your home. They are the main points of access into your house requiring significant safety levels. Not to mention they can also take a battering from the weather and other external forces leading to the need of durable, weather resistant material.

During the process of choosing, to purchasing and through to the installation, you’ll be faced with a number of factors to consider throughout this process which can have huge implications on both the aesthetics of your home and the ways in which it can function. At Ontario Door Repair we sell and fit uPVC, as well as purpose made timber and aluminum, doors made to measure to your exact requirement.

Below we have discussed what you’ll need to consider when purchasing a new uPVC door, because contrary to many people’s beliefs, it’s not all about the price.

Cost Effective

Not only are uPVC doors considerably cheaper than timber or aluminum options but they are likely to save you money in the long run too. uPVC generally possess thermal transmittance values which are far superior to aluminum, steel and in most cases timber too.

This simply means that with the installation of uPVC exterior doors your house will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer months.

uPVC doors generally fit more securely when fixed meaning that there is little, or next to no, droughts promising a cost effective and thermal efficient solution for your home. Working as an excellent insulator, stopping cold and damp getting in and warm air escaping, you can rest assured that you’ll no longer waste money on your energy and heating bills.

Additional Security

With the addition of uPVC doors to your property you are guaranteed an excellent level of home security when compared to traditional wooden doors.

Most uPVC doors have a core of galvanized steel making them extremely difficult to break down. And because of this galvanized steel feature, uPVC doors are anti-crowbar meaning that any potential threat would have a considerably difficult time trying to force it open.

Maintenance

Unlike other materials uPVC doesn’t rot, flake, rush, fad, peel or corrode. For example aluminum doors can scratch and chip on the surface coating leading to exposed damage. uPVC on the other hand typically has color all the way through its profile so any scratches aren’t noticeable and what’s more it is tough on impact.

Apart from the occasional need to oil the locking mechanisms, you will notice that very little needs to be done to keep your new uPVC door in tip top condition. As an extremely durable material you can relax in the knowledge that you won’t have to fork out for multiple repairs.

Aesthetics

We can’t always please everyone when it comes to aesthetics, after all we all have our own individual tastes. Many used to view uPVC with disdain as the look and quality was of generally poor caliber, often with discoloration and poor UV ratings. However, this is no longer the case.

uPVC doors now come with color stabilizers, laminates and the ability to mimic wood grain textures and any other color imaginable. In some cases you can even opt to have a different color or effect inside to match your interior decor; how great is that! This is particularly useful for older, period properties where an unsightly bright white plastic door can ruin the aesthetics of the property.

More Information and Advice

We understand that choosing the right exterior door is an important purchase, both in terms of efficiency, security and aesthetics. That is why the team here at Ontario Door Repair are on hand to assist you when making the right purchase right through to installation. Give us a call on 647-951-3510 and speak to one of our friendly team for more help and advice.

Hence many people are faced with problems of the like of sticking or jammed doors, unwarranted opening of the doors or its not staying open.

 

As far as sticking or jammed doors are concerned, it is usually because of deformed frames or channels through which the door slides and they can be easily repaired without much hassle.

Usually, with a simple toolkit of a hammer, a wrench a few nut and bolts and a screwdriver, you can fix most of these problems by yourself. The erraticGarage Door Opener Repair Tips Toronto opening and closing of the door might be due to a depressed key in the opener control or there might be some problem with the opener circuit of the which can easily be fixed. But the problem arises when some major part of it develops a defect, for example, the gears of the door opener. In such cases, a more involved repair is required. Hopefully, the following steps would give you some useful insight about repairing and replacing the worn out gears in your opener.

You can understand if the gear has broken even though the motor is working properly and the torsion springs are intact. These gears, usually made of plastic, are among the weaker parts of the opener and can be damaged due to several reasons like old age, prolonged usage without maintenance, imbalance in the garage door or may be due to a manufacturing defect.

 

But, with a few simple equipment and following the instructions properly, you can change these gears on your own.

First and foremost, you should disconnect the electric supply to the garage door to prevent any chance of electrocution and also so that no one operates the door while you are working on it. Next, you should close the door manually and remove it from the pulley to ensure that the door does not accidentally hurt you while you are servicing it. Now you are ready to set about repairing your opener and replace the gears.

 

Now you need to open the retainer cap of the belt pulley and remove the sprocket.

Now you can remove the chain or belt from the sprocket after marking its position and tape it to prevent it from getting twisted up and messy. Then remove the end covers, the drive gear, the retaining clip and the RPM sensor and also disconnect the motor. An assembly of nuts holds the motor to the shaft. You need to remove these nuts first.

 

Once you have removed the motor from the drive shaft, you can remove the gear and replace it if necessary.

Having replaced the gear, you need to start reassembling the entire system in the exactly opposite manner. Take care to see to it that each part goes into the right place to avoid any further problem with your garage door. Thus, we see that changing the worn out gears is a bit more involved. Hence, if you are not very confident about doing it yourself, you should call a professional garage door repair service to tend to the matter.

It’s best to get an accurate assessment as soon as possible.

While it’s important to get repairs quickly, you should always do your research before hiring someone. You don’t want to get scammed or cheated, and there are undoubtedly plenty of reputable contractors in your area who specialize in storm damage repair.
  3. Try getting references from your family, friends, and neighbors. If they’ve had a particularly good experience with a contractor, that might be a good place to start.

Because the average homeowner rarely buys more than one garage door (and some of them never even need to do that), then knowing what to expect during the installation process can an uncertain experience. However, it doesn’t have to be a overwhelming or difficult. After all, the biggest part of the garage door installation process is the selection of the door. Once that piece is accomplished, then the installation part is up to the garage door company.

However, if you are the type of homeowner who likes to be fully informed about every element of your home – and there’s nothing wrong with that! – then chances are you have some questions or concerns about the garage door installation process.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you begin the process of selecting a garage door and understanding the installation process.

  • If you are considering putting your home on the market, then updating your garage door(s) is a great way to add value and curb appeal.
  • If the door is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider getting a new one as mechanical issues are more likely and the opener itself might not work as well.
  • The older your door gets, the more likely it will be loud when opening/closing.
  • The safety features that are common in new door opener designs, were not the norm on older systems.
  • You need to understand the types of openers available on today’s market. The most common are chain drives, belt drives, jackshift drives, and screw drives. The quietest of these is the jackshift which is mounted to the wall, rather than ceiling, while the loudest is the screw drive openers which work with a steel rod and a trolley.
  • Keep in mind that the door doesn’t do the actual lifting. Consequently, it is important that the team that does your installation, is fully certified and licensed for the work so that you can be sure it will work properly.
  • Take time to look at the various features of the different types of garage door openers. From being able to open them through an app to having a battery backup or a wireless and keyless entry that doesn’t require a fob of any sort, there are many choices – beyond just considering the type of door and amount of insulation.

 

Once you have determined which type of door you want, don’t try to cut costs by doing the installation as a weekend DIY project. Talk to a garage door installation team and schedule an appointment.

 

Appliance Repair Tips Toronto

Fast Appliance Repair 866-298-9322

Appliance Repair Tips Toronto

Appliance repairs often strike at the most inopportune times. Unfortunately, they can leave a gaping wound in your budget, if you don’t plan for them. Here are a few ideas and tips to consider, that will help ease your next appliance repair problem.

Appliance Repair Tips Toronto

Before You Do It Yourself

Make sure the appliance isn’t covered by a service agreement or warranty. If it’s still covered under warranty, you will need to find out how to use the warranty properly. First call the company offering the warranty and ask them for clarification on using the warranty properly (DO NOT void the warranty by trying to fix the appliance yourself). After that, your next step is to contact (or take) the appliance to an appropriate maintenance or service company. Have them do the repairs under the protective cover of your warranty. Also, you should make sure you are properly reimbursed for all charges after having your appliance repaired.

 

Do It Yourself

If there is no warranty or coverage on your appliance, your next step is to track down the owner’s manual, and try and make the repair yourself. You shouldn’t repair an appliance without having the service manual with you. When the manual or warranty isn’t an option, your next choice will be to look under the lid, or inside of the appliance, and find the basic instruction guidelines. Most appliances have a small set of operating instructions, printed on the appliance somewhere, which MIGHT help you solve your problem. For most of us, though, these steps probably won’t be enough.

 

Finding an Appliance Repair Service Company

If you aren’t able to make the repairs yourself quickly and easily, then you will need to find an appliance repair service to do the job right, and get your appliance working again. There are several ways you can find an appliance repair company in your area. You can…

  • Hunt down and dust off that huge yellow pages book, lying somewhere in the dark, outer recesses of your home.
  • Ask a friend or family member who they use for their appliance repairs
  • Visit an online directory, like Yahoo’s ™ yellow pages
  • If you’d like input from an independent source, on reliable local appliance repair companies, call a major real estate firm (in your area) and ask who they use for their appliance repairs.

 

Appliance Repair Services

A majority of repair companies have technicians available who can repair most household appliances. Major appliance repair companies will typically make service calls to your home. Small appliances often get repaired at the local repair shop, instead of at your home. If it’s a small appliance, you want to make sure they offer repair or replacement services for it. This would include items such as microwave ovens, oven fans, heaters, Kitchen aid ™ mixers, other small miscellaneous kitchen appliances, and maybe even power tools.

 

Questions to Ask Repair Companies

Once you have the names of a few appliance repair service companies, you may want to ask any or all of these questions when you call…

  1. Ask when the soonest they can come out to make the repair? If the timing is adequate, ask how punctual they are (and if they have a guarantee on the time)? There’s nothing worse than waiting all day for a repair that won’t happen that day.
  2. Ask if they offer a guarantee on their work and their parts?
  3.  Ask about a written estimate; service call charge; fees; or a combination of written estimate with final bill?
  4. Ask if it is possible to add service call fees to your monthly utility bill.
  5. Gas, electrical, radiation, and refrigeration repairs require special considerations. Qualified Repair technicians must have experiences with gas, electrical, and refrigeration issues. When they repair gas appliances and microwave ovens, appliance repair technicians need to be aware of dangers form gas and radiation leaks. When you need to have your stove fixed or your gas lines checked for leaks, you definitely want to call a home appliance repair person for help. Mostly, just make sure they are qualified to fix the specific appliance you need repaired.
  6. If you’re interested, you can ask them if they offer a monthly service plan. Having a consistent appliance repair technician and service can keep your home appliances humming right along, and may also help prevent unwanted breakdowns. This would give you peace of mind for all your major home appliances, and keep all your appliances protected under one convenient repair plan. You can also ask questions, which might include concerns about appliance installation, operation and repair.

 

Hopefully some of these tips will help ease your next appliance repair problem. Once you have exhausted all of these steps, and if the repair still didn’t work, then it might be time to look into buying the new appliance you’ve been dreaming of. But we’ll cover that in another article.

Commercial

A commercial locksmith specializes in locks that are manufactured for business purposes. Examples would be installation of panic bars, replacing locks in file cabinets, installation of automatic door closer, safe/vault installation as well as installing a master-key system. Panic bars are especially important as they would provide workers a means to exit the building premises in case of emergencies.

 

Services

In choosing the locksmith that would best suit your need(s), it is important to deal with a company that is licensed and has done background checks on their employees. This is to make sure that the company that you would be transacting with is legal and since some items in the house might be valuable or important documents are inside vaults or safes, one is assured that the person they are dealing with is someone who they can trust. Consider talking with someone who knows a reputable locksmith especially if you’ve just moved in or purchased a new home or office.

I have been a mobile locksmith for the better part of 10 years. I have worked in and alongside all facets of the locksmith industry. Locksmith is a critical trade that is often underrepresented in the trades community, and the people at large. But what is a locksmith, and why is it important to know? As one locksmith I spoke with frankly stated, “a locksmith works with locks.” The essential-ism is quite true, yet fails to engage with the dynamic variety within the industry.

 

Locksmith comprises specific knowledge and skills designed for maintaining access control.

Access control ensures that those who are allowed entrance to a specific area or building are permitted, while those who are not allowed entrance to a building are denied. Access control is everywhere – be it the locks on your house or store, your vehicle, parkade or gated community. Many locksmiths I have sat down with were either owner and operator of their own business, or they owned a locksmith shop from which they dispatched mobile technicians. Locksmith technicians operate in many forms and often take on a specialized roles in the industry.

 

Automotive technicians specialize in automobile locks.

For vehicle locks, each year, make, and model often has different internal mechanisms, unique and specific electronic and mechanical hardware. Thus automotive locksmithing has a steep learning curb and requires a large base of specialized tools and knowledge. This work largely involves opening locked cars, cutting specailized keys, and occasionally tearing out steering coloumbs, door panels and reporgraming onboard computers. Most often however, automotive technicians open locked vehicle doors. Automotive technicians often intercede the dealership-client relationship to provide automotive services at a better price and by more reliable technicians.

 

Another specialized role is the emergency locksmith.

Emergency technicians are on call 24 hours a day. They respond to lockouts, fix break-ins, and repair broken doors. They also engage in basic locksmith work, such as rekeying locks and installing door hardware. Emergency technicians deal with a plethora of moral and ethical crisis. Thus it is important to ensure that your emergency technician be licenced, bonded and insured. Emergency technicians are called in to change the locks when a spouse has been abused. They open the door into grandma’s house when she hasn’t answered the phone in two weeks, and they change the locks on your door when someone you don’t trust has the keys.

 

Emergency technicians work with people who are scared, angry, and vulnerable and often in conjunction with the police.

A less exciting but equally important aspect of locksmiths is on the commercial industrial side of business. Commercial locksmiths work on construction sites and developing buildings. They install doors and door hardware. They assign master key systems for the building and integrate construction masters for the workers.

 

Alternatively, locksmiths can reside within pre-existing institutions.

Hospitals, prisons, schoolboards, are examples of institutions which keep full time locksmiths on their payroll. High security specialists work with high-security locks, exclusive keyways, electronic locks and safe work. They control access to highly exclusive areas and possess sensitive knowledge of those areas.

 

Locksmithing is a vastly growing enterprise.

The need for greater access control rises with new technologies and rising crime rates. I would encourage everyone to become familiar with the locksmiths in your area. It is important to build a repertoire with your local technician. You should always have your locks re keyed when you move into a new building, and any locksmith worth their weight will have great ideas on how to improve your security. Locksmith is often underrepresented in the trades community but they are the most important deterrent between you, your property, and crime.
