Slam Lock That Enhances Security.

How a Slam Lock Enhances Security.

The moment a slam lock is mentioned in South Africa, security-conscious residents take note, almost automatically. In our beautiful country that’s sadly also become known for its high crime rates, people recognise that a slam lock is one of the most vitally important features of modern security barriers.

A door or gate, without a reliable method of securing it, doesn’t suffice as an effective security measure. While everyone is completely familiar with a standard lock, some are in the dark about the products we fit into our retractable security barriers.

The term “slam lock” is virtually self-explanatory; deadlocks, less so. When we manufacture our retractable security barriers at Sequre, our company that specialises in producing, distributing and installing these fine safeguards, we fit every retractable unit with both versions.

Why the Slam?

Although exact names may vary from country to country, the slam lock is a very effective method of securing a retractable barrier safely into its closed and locked position, thereby instantly securing the people and possessions inside the premises, whilst preventing the entry of an intruder.

Because the mechanism requires a bit of momentum or force that’s akin to slamming a door and securing it instantaneously, this mechanism is known throughout South Africa as a slam lock. Once the barrier is slammed shut, it’s also secured, without the use of a key.

Most Significant Benefits

In an emergency situation, one doesn’t have the time to think, plan and act accordingly; you simply must separate yourself from the threat immediately. This is when a quality concertina-like barrier that’s fitted with our Sequre slam lock is invaluable. It may be a lifesaver, which is this product’s most significant benefit.

It’s well worth taking note that our retractable products – the Panther and Status ranges – feature two types of locking mechanisms, slam locks, as mentioned, plus deadlocks, thereby providing a double level of strength and security.

Deadlocks are available for different applications. As standard, this security measure has a keyhole on each side. Depending on the door or window opening’s location, the series of bolts may operate horizontally or vertically, although the former position is most likely to be commonplace.

Because retractable products fold away to form a narrow stack at the non-opening, fixed side, cleaning windows or door glass, or applying a treatment to the exterior surface of a closed wooden door is a breeze. Additionally, when you want a clear view into your property’s garden and surrounds, you simply slide away the retractable barrier, and voila – your view and access are uninterrupted and unrestricted.

A Cautionary Word

Since Sequre’s sliding, retractable gates are secured without a key, you and other occupants of the home should discipline yourselves to avoid locking yourselves out, leaving someone stuck on the outer side of the barrier, unable to re-enter until yet another person arrives, armed with a key to come to your rescue.

Sequre holds several patents and unique, registered designs. Additionally, we offer a lifetime guarantee on our products. Should the security system that we’ve supplied and installed be broken into, we undertake to replace or repair the product, or we’ll refund the client.

You simply cannot go wrong with Sequre and our superior security solutions, fitted with quality slam lock systems.
