    The Anatomy of a Commercial Door & Locking System

    Think about the way you enter your business at the start of the workday: you open a door. At the end of the day, you lock up after the last customer or client has left the building.


    These are simple tasks-so simple, in fact, that they're easy to take for granted. But if your door breaks or your locking system fails you, suddenly your entire building is compromised. That's why you need strong doors and a top-notch security system on your side.


    It all begins with the doors you choose, followed by the locking system and accessories you implement. Before you can predict the success of your building's security system, you have to do more than rely on the elements that were in place when you leased the building. You need to investigate each door's anatomy.


    Here's what to look for in a secure commercial door system.
