Does YOUR business conform to all current ADAFIRE and LIFE SAFETY codes?


Often misunderstood, Master Key Systems are a form of Access Control.

They are developed mathematically to allow different people different levels of access to secured areas.

This control can be accomplished with mechanical keys, keypads, electronic cards or fobs. A survey is completed to determine who needs to go through which locks. In other words it’s a traffic control system.

In a business or apartment complex, the owner or general manager can have a Master Key that works all locks while a different manager’s key only works in certain areas and an employee’s key only works in the employee entrance and their own private office.

NOTE: In above the illustration:

  • #1 Key works A-B-C-D-E-F (6 doors)
  • #2 Key works A-B-C-F (4 doors)
  • #3 Key works A-B-D (3 doors)
  • #4 Key works A-B-C-D-F (5 doors)



Often referred to as ‘Panic Bars’ or ‘Crash Bars’, Exit Devices were developed to allow immediate egress in the event of a fire, emergency or panic situation. Exterior trim can be in a lever, thumb-latch or key-pull device to allow entry with a key or passage (no key needed) function during open hours of a business.

NOTE: Fire & Life Safety Codes require that the exit device be the ONLY locking device on the door. Deadbolts, slide bolts, chains, padlocks, over-ride blocking bars, etc. can not be on the door because they would negate the immediate ‘no knowledge / single action’ exit requirement.



Door Closers

A door closer is installed to close a door automatically after someone passes through the door – or to hold it open. If a door closer is not properly adjusted it can close too fast or not at all.

If it is worn out it may be leaking oil. In either case it presents a liability on your part. People can be hit by the door closing too fast or slip in the oil that has dripped on the floor. Call us to remedy any door closer problems.
