Physical Security | Keys and Doors
Physical Security begins with robust keys, locks, sturdy door hardware and well-built security fixtures designed to prevent intrusion and property loss.
We specify key management systems that help you take control of your keys. We have key cabinets, key drawer inserts and electronic key cabinets that help you get organized. Our electronic key cabinets can provide an audit and accountability of key use and can alert you by email or text if a key has not been returned or has gone missing.
Most home and office keys are easily duplicated at your local hardware store or home improvement center. At Artery Lock Security, we feature Medeco(™) Patented keys and locks that cannot be duplicated anywhere else. We will not make copies or these restricted keys without proper authorization and documentation.

When you purchase a new home, apartment or business, it is critical that you re-key to insure that old keys and unaccounted for keys are not able to be used to gain entry without your knowledge. Call us for a free estimate.
Key System Design
We design key systems that allow a few select keys to fit in one, many or all locks. We give you control over your physical entry points while minimizing the total number of keys outstanding or require you carry an unnecessary amount of keys.
We have thousands of residential, commercial, tubular, automotive, motorcycle and even vintage key blanks in stock at all times. From Barrel, Tubular, skeleton, antique cabinet and desk drawer and traditional keyways, visit our Retail Showroom to have your key duplicated.
Know your grade: The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grades hardware based on specific manufacturing methods and materials to determine the strength and durability of the hardware and finish. Grade 3 commonly found in do-it-yourself blister packaging is far less durable and secure than Grade 2 or 1 door hardware. At Artery Lock Security Integration, we rarely specify grade 3 hardware for our clients.
We also specify the finest door hardware, knobs and levers for residential properties from Emtek, Baldwin, Marks, Yale, Schlage, Codelocks, and others.
A door closer is an essential part of many commercial door hardware installation. Door closers are used to insure that Fire Doors remain shut or can be triggered to close a door during a fire alarm or other event. Entry and Access Control doors must be closed to ensure proper security. We specify many types of closers in many grades or finishes. We also feature door closers in Custom Colors to match your unique design specifications.
Commonly referred to as “crash bars” or “push bars” these devices are essential equipment in commercial properties or where occupancy dictates their use. Used in case of fire or evacuation, a person simply “crashes” into the device with any part or their hand, arm or body and the door is unlatched allowing for safe egress. We have both standard and electrified panic devices in may trim levels and finishes to meet your aesthetic, security and fire-safety needs.
