Last year we talked about the Lockwood 005 Paradigm Deadbolt as a new entrant to the home security market.
The above video shows how well this product is designed and how easy it is to install. It is also one of the few products available anywhere in the world, that provides double cylinder (key lockable inside and outside) protection while providing building and fire code compliance.
Many home owners have beautiful front main entry doors, that are the first thing their guests see when visiting. Many home owners pride themselves on the appearance of their front door and the lock hardware products market is one of the busiest and most competitive industries.
But until now, due to building codes and fire protection laws, primary entrance doors are not allowed to incorporate double cylinder locks. This has been a rather contentious issue across the world, because people have been unable to install adequate security products while adhering to building and fire codes.
It will be interesting to see if the USA market learns from the example of Lockwood Australia and product manufacturers here modify their product range to include these new superior design and function deadbolts.
