A panic bar is a must have for any business property. Many cities across Georgia, and the United States, require them, and for good reason. In the event of an emergency, such as a violent robbery or fire, your staff and customers need to exit safely. Panic bars have other benefits as well. For example, you can get a panic bar installed on a door that can’t open from the outside. This will help direct the traffic that comes into your business through the front, while still allowing swift emergency exit. Having this kind of system in place can help you better monitor who enters and leaves your building, and will reduce the chances of theft. Also, if you have a large building, it can take a while for everyone inside to know that an emergency is taking place. Having an alarm installed with your panic bars can alert everyone inside that an emergency is taking place, so they can act right away and reduce their chances of injury.
Mortise is a term used when a cut out must be bored into the door to secure the lock in place. They used to be standard on doors in the past, but have since been replaced by cylindrical locks in most residential situations. Despite the change, many businesses prefer mortise locks for their stability, durability and strength.
While this kind of lock may not be practical for the entrance of a highly-trafficked retail store or restaurant, they are great for securing offices, warehouses and rooms within commercial buildings. Many options on the market allow for various forms of access, including RFID chip readers, card readers, fingerprint and biometric access, keypads and traditional keys. This is great for a business that only wants approved personnel to access certain areas of the building. A card access system will make it easier to control who has access to the area because you won’t be handing out keys that can be lost, stolen or duplicated.
