Just as important as the door itself is the hardware that closes and secures the door. Some of the hardware necessary for this operation are:

  • Door closers
    • Assists in securing exterior doors after person leaves the building

Most keys can be duplicated at a local hardware store because anyone can purchase the blank or uncut key. A Medeco/Keymark patented key control system makes it virtually impossible for someone to get a copy of your keys without your permission. Due to key and cylinder patents as well as agreements for the controlled issue of key blanks, unauthorized manufacture and duplication of keys are prohibited. This greatly restricts tenants or employees from making numerous duplicates of common area keys.
