These are some of the most common garage door locks we have experience with:
Bolts and Deadbolts – Side door bolts are common for garage doors, especially among homeowners, as they are invisible from the outside and are more difficult to tamper with. Deadbolts deliver additional reinforcement for the door and there are key-lockable options for greater security.
Garage Door Handles – Up and over garage doors often have a single locking handle in the centre of the door which can make them a target for break-ins or vandalism. A heavy-duty solution for this style of garage door is a defender which comprises of a long arm which is fixed to the front of the door and locked to a concrete base, coupled with a padlock for added security.
T-Handle Lock – One of the most common locks on metal garage doors, this mechanism uses a difficult-to-replicate cylinder key to operate the handle rather than a conventional key.
Keyless Locks – Digital, electronic keypads are high security and operate without keys, so they’re a convenient option for homeowners and commercial premises. You create the entry code for access, so they deter intruders.
