There are so many services which locksmith can provide for you but are you sure you know all of these? Let’s see with the help of this enlisting of all the services which a good, professional locksmith can help you with.

If we would enlist all the services which we know locksmiths do, we would surely include the following:

But what about all the rest? Is there any service more that locksmiths can help you with? Indeed there are, therefore let’s get to help you out and see what else can locksmith services assist you.

1.) Specifying and installing electrical access control systems

There are tons of workplaces which use electrical access systems and it’s also a locksmith company which would provide and install for them. This can be considered as a specialization but it’s definitely something that locksmith services deal with.

2.) Checking and assisting you with insurance compliance

If you are to make a home insurance, you need to be aware that insurance companies have quite a strict list of conditions on what sort of and how many locks doors and windows should have, to make sure no easy access can be gained in the building by burglars. A good locksmith service needs to be aware of most of these conditions and therefore they will be able to help you in getting the locks you need to fulfil the insurance conditions.

3.) Providing overall security check

This is also an integral part of a locksmith’s job, to see the overall quality of doors, windows and their locks, to define how resitant they are and also to suggest what to change them for.

4.) Offering fire safety check

A door should not only be able to shut properly, it should also have other qualities which make sure that they can block a substantial amount of smoke for a long amount of time, to help isolating the flames and the smoke. This is not obligatory, but can certainly come handy for everyone.

5.) Installation, reparation and selling of safes and safe keys

Not many are aware but it’s also part of a locksmith’s job to help you with the buying, installing of safes, providing you with the safe keys ( or other safe unlock method) and the reproducing of keys when it’s necessary. Not everyone has safes in their homes but they can definitely prove to be a good means of hiding our valuables, especially when we leave for a longer time.

6.) Repairing of locks on post boxes

Indeed, if the lock of your postbox is not functioning any longer, a good locksmith can easily help you with it, even when it comes to changing the postbox to an entirely new one.
