We keep a diverse stock of common locksets on board our service vans to quickly make your building secure in the event you have locks that need to be replaced immediately.
Door Knobs and Lever Handle Sets
Call us for service and repairs, and to get the best advice on what kind of knob set or lever handle set you need.
Various functionality for knob sets includes:
- Storeroom function: Always locked, always requiring a key to access
- Classroom function: Lock functionality is engaged or disengaged using a key
- Entry function: Pushbutton to engage or disengage the locking function, and key accessible
- Privacy function: Pushbutton lock with hole to release from outside (residential washrooms)
- Passage function: Latch with no lock
Emergency Exit Push Bars
Push bars are required on most exit doors, specifically to allow easy egress during a fire or other emergency. They can be non-accessible or key-accessible from the outside. Call us for:
- Repair or replacing non-functioning panic sets
- Replacing knobs or lever handles with new panic set push bars
- Installing anti-tamper guards for your panic bars
We service both mechanical and electro-mechanical push bars on both steel and aluminum/glass storefront doors.
Push-to-Exit Paddle Handles
Paddle handles are similar to emergency exit push bars, just in a smaller form factor. They are typically used in glass + aluminum storefront doors instead of a push bar.
They are a quick and effective handle for emergency exit, or just exiting through a door you want to generally keep locked. They also have a dogging mechanism, allowing you to “dog” the lock open during the day, and then release so the door self-locks at night.
Depending on your code requirements, a push bar may be required if installing on a new door, and there are many push bars now that are compatible with glass and aluminum storefront doors.
Pushbutton Access Locks
Pushbutton access door locks are a great way to control access to areas such as common area washrooms, without the need for keeping track of keys (that often get taken off site by accident or left locked in the washroom).
Pushbutton code door locks are also great for offices, mechanical rooms, electrical rooms, or any door where you may want to provide access to authorized persons without needing to attend site.
Pushbutton door locks are available in knob or lever handles, and with or without key access.
Flush Bolt and Octopod Door Locks
Double doors usually have a passage door and a static door (which in some cases is usually locked). Due to the way double doors work, it’s not practical to lock one door to the other the way a single door is locked to the door frame.
To secure your double doors, flush locks are used to lock the static door to the frame above the door and threshold below the door. The passage door is then locked to this static door.
Call us to repair or replace non-functioning flush locks, or to add octopods to your doors – octopods are mounted on the door and can only be locked or unlocked using a key, providing additional security from tampering.
Electric Door Strikes
Electric door strikes allow you to:
- Create access systems based around swipe cards or fobs which can be controlled (for example, deleted from the system in the event they are lost or stolen)
- Create automatic lock and unlock times to control access during business hours
We repair or replace electric strikes, and can also install new strikes to door frames for your access control company to wire in and add to your system. In addition to electric strikes, there are similar types of hardware that are mounted on the door itself – for example electrified emergency exit push bars.
Washroom Occupancy Indicator Locks
For single occupancy washrooms in large offices or building common areas, washroom indicator locks are very helpful. They come in many configurations but the most common is a dead latch activated by a thumb turn. When the latch is locked, the indicator will show “In Use“, and when unlocked the indicator reads “Vacant“.
These locks can usually be retrofitted to replace your non-indicating locks. They also feature maintenance or security access keys in case of emergency or the lock is somehow engaged without an occupant.
Washroom Stall Locks
For multiple-occupancy restrooms with individual stalls, there are 3 key hardware components that make up a stall that we can service for you:
- Washroom stall locks and hinges
- Partition panel mounting hardware
- Partition panels and doors
Washroom stalls locks often come in a variety of proprietary designs, and the door prep holes are fabricated to fit only these specific locks. We repair and replace these non-standard as well as standardized washroom door locks.
Sliding Door Locks
Sliding balcony doors are unique in that problems with the locks can arise from 2 main issues – the lock itself, or the door’s rollers which can prevent the latch from lining up properly when they are faulty.
We can service your sliding doors no matter what the issue is, including:
- Lock repairs for sliding doors
- Roller replacement for sliding doors
- Adjustments to the frame, track, and door
Window Locks and Hardware
Windows have a variety of hardware that can be serviced including locks, hinges, gear hinges, and weather seals. Your windows are just as important for the building’s security as your doors, and in some cases even more so.
Windows also come with a wide assortment of different locking hardware that is sometimes difficult to find. We specialize in:
- Repairing or replacing window locks
- Sourcing window lock parts and hardware
- Adding locks to existing windows
- Pneumatic window opener replacement
Maglocks (magnetic door locks) are an important component to the security of many commercial buildings that allow programmable access times to the building. For programming lock and unlock times, it’s best to contact your building’s access system service provider.
For repair or replacement of the physical hardware, Fortress One can help you troubleshoot, assess, and make adjustments or repairs so your maglocks are functioning properly.
Often times the issues we encounter with mag locks have more to do with door operation than the maglock itself – our locksmiths and door techs will be able to properly determine the cause of the issue and repair it.
Padlocks are an important component of your property’s security. They are used to lock roof hatches, gates, garbage enclosures, gas meter cages, storage cages, and all kinds of other secure enclosures. We can provide you with a great selection of premium padlocks not readily available at your hardware store, including:
- Combination padlocks to bypass the need for key distribution or attending site to grant access
- Multiple padlocks keyed alike for use across multiple areas of your property or multiple properties
- Heavy duty and high security padlocks with hardened bodies and shackles
- Custom padlock hasps with heavy duty protective shrouding to prevent brute force attacks
