  • Choose a high-quality deadbolt and make sure it’s locked at all time, make sure the bolt is extending for at least 1 inch into the strike plate.
  • If there is a glass window 35 inches or less from a lock, install a double-sided cylinder lock.
  • In office buildings or workplaces with security levels, a Master Key System or Electronic Access Control can offer different access level to different individuals.
