Think Your Business Needs to Change the Locks? Think Again.


In the fast-paced world of business, security is paramount. From bustling malls to towering office buildings, ensuring a safe and secure environment is essential for both the well-being of employees and the protection of valuable assets. However, many businesses encounter common challenges that threaten their security.


Changing out all of your locking hardware can be an intimidating process, and, while sometimes it is necessary, there is an alternative to buying all new hardware: Rekeying commercial locks. In this article, we'll explore the key problems businesses often face and how rekeying offers an effective remedy. At Calgary Lock and Safe, we're dedicated to empowering businesses with robust security solutions, and rekeying is a cornerstone of our services.


Common Business Security Challenges

  1. Lost or Stolen Keys: The problem: Lost or stolen keys can be a major security breach, granting unauthorized access to sensitive areas. The solution: Rekeying changes the lock's internal configuration, making old keys useless and requiring new ones for entry.

  2. Employee Turnover: The problem: Employee departures can lead to unauthorized access if they retain their keys. The solution: Rekeying ensures that ex-employees cannot enter the premises with their old keys, bolstering security.

  3. Unauthorized Access: The problem: Unwanted intruders gaining access to the premises due to lax security measures. The solution: Rekeying restricts entry to authorized personnel only, minimizing the risk of breaches.

  4. Security Breaches: The problem: Previous security breaches or attempted break-ins can compromise the integrity of the lock system. The solution: Rekeying promptly enhances security by rendering compromised keys ineffective.

  5. Changing Security Levels: The problem: Evolving security needs, such as the introduction of valuable assets or restructured office spaces. The solution: Rekeying adapts the locks to changing security requirements quickly and efficiently.
