High Security & Commercial Hardware
Designed for the most security-sensitive environments, our high security and commercial hardware combines pick- and drill-resistant locks with keys that can never be copied without authorization.

This superior level of protection is made possible by products such as mortise locks and electronic keypad and mechanical deadbolts, which far exceed the security afforded by standard-grade hardware.

“High Security” describes the total package. This state is often achieved through the layering of physical prevention, controlled access, surveillance by camera and intrusion alarm with comprehensive reporting software for history audit purposes.

High Security is achieved by ensuring that the correct caliber of device is specified. In applications that are subject to extreme traffic flow or demanding physical site conditions, heavy duty architectural grade solutions are needed to guarantee secure function without compromise.

Industry Security Standards 

Industry security standards ensure the quality and durability of locks within defined benchmarks of operation and security. The two most highly recognized and widely accepted organizations for assessing the quality of locks are the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Underwriters Laboratories (UL). 
ANSI BHMA Grade System

ANSI/ BHMA (Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association) Grading System is accredited by the America National Standards Institute (ANSI), a private non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the voluntary standardization to develop and maintain performance standards for builder's hardware. ANSI/BHMA standards set forth different product grades for door hardware products. These product grades are defined by progressive levels of performance benchmarks in each applicable standard. The purpose of each is to help identify the quality and durability of locksets through a series of operational and security tests. 

UL Standards

UL Standards and the Underwriters Laboratories is an independent product safety certification organization. UL 437 is a security rating that provides a barometer for the security of a keyed lock. Our Kwikset Signature Series 980 deadbolt, featuring SmartKey Re-Key Technology, met the UL 437 11.6.1 pick test, one of the toughest picking tests in the world. During the test, picking tools are used to manipulate the components of the lock device, which requires a high level of skill and practice.
