Oyster Bay, New York (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
Locksmith Oyster Bay proudly announces it has completed work at a fire damaged commercial building to repair entrances and upgrade the facility in general. Long Island’s leading locksmith has replaced three damaged doors and installed new hardware for 25 doors following a blaze at the place of business. Entrances and exits destroyed or damaged by fire and natural elements can present security risks for vandalism and further degradation if not addressed properly and efficiently. A commercial building containing valuables, professional office equipment, sensitive documents and even cash, can be a potential target for looters or vandals in the aftermath of a fire or disaster. Thus, it is of utmost importance to have a quality locksmith on site to assess the nature of the damage and initiate timely repairs with reliable, durable doors, locks and other hardware, thereby ensuring the safety and integrity of the building. Specialty doors and exits that are commercial grade and fire rated can also be instrumental in providing the necessary time to rescue lives and secure valuable materials. Fire rated doors can withstand certain high temperatures, buying time for workers to escape an emergency situation. High quality metal locks and hardware can also stand up to life-threatening elements, keeping potential danger at bay while workers can inform authorities and help organize a safe exit as quickly as possible. The difference between life and death can be a matter of seconds. Locksmiths typically encourage preventive maintenance on the doors and entrances to commercial facilities to prepare against emergencies and keep ahead of the curve when it involves safety. Secure access and egress points in a commercial building are also necessary to comply with local fire and safety ordinances.
The recent additions will certainly go a long way toward improving the building’s standing with the local municipality and its safety codes, not to mention the workers’ peace of mind.
