Bulldog GD400 Gate Security Lock installed to busy convenience store
Having installed the Bulldog GD400 Security Gate lock a few years ago for another client, we knew what to install at this location to significantly increase their security without the need to install a replacement gate.
The product is made in Great Britain and has virtually no match for security and practicality globally.
Installation is straightforward normally but this one was made more difficult due to how close the gate rides next the the shopfront aluminum glass doors.
The keeper (strike plate) is embedded into the cement entrance. It is about 6” long and requires hammer drilling into the floor and setting with quick dry cement.
The cost to install this high security lock system is significantly competitive to replacing a $15,000.00 complete new gate.

Custom Blocker Plate installed to Shopfront Door
Todays job was to install a blocker plate, custom made for a shopfront door because typical commercially available plates of similar ilk would not fit easily without moving the current door pull.
We decided upon aluminum L junction that we cut out to accept the existing door lock. We painted the aluminum plate with Flex Seal rubberized paint and Durontic color enamel rust resistant spray paint.
We attached the new plate with 3/16” rivets for a clean and permanent fit.
It works flawlessly and matches the aesthetics of the existing frame.
Customer is satisfied and ordered more work for another location. This being the fifth location we have done work for them.

What Is Your Preferred Door Hardware Color Finish?
What Is Your Preferred Door Hardware Finish?What is your preferred door hardware color finish? We have been taking a long look through our invoices over the last 15 years and determined the most popular and preferred color finish selections from our vast list of clients.
The stock photo above is an image of a piece of nickel. We include it here because of the sudden rise in the market price of nickel ore, just in the last 2 days. We suspect there are obvious reasons for this sudden spike, given the political and economic upheavals our world is currently experiencing, but this story made me think about the most common request for color finishes of door hardware, knobs, deadbolts, lever entrance sets. thumbpress entrance locksets, hinges, peepholes, door sweeps, blocker plates, wrap-arounds etc, among some of the products we have sold, serviced and installed over the years.
The common finishes in the market in the USA and other countries around the world are pretty much similar even though some places choose varying preferences, which could be regional among other reasons.
I'm sure people across the industry and around the world, decorators, interior and exterior designers, locksmiths, builders, retailers etc would enjoy understanding why some color selections are made over others and if you would like to share your preferred color finish choices in the comments below that'd be great.
According to our deep dive into our books, the preferred door hardware color finishes are topped by the Satin Nickel choice.
Antique Brass comes a distant second followed closely by polished brass, with venetian bronze and florentine bronze bringing up the rear. Black is finding more traction in recent years but is still farther down the list of preferences.
We have been representing a few manufacturers over the last 15 years, including Serrature Meroni products, Assa-Abloy Lockwood, Schlage, Kwikset, Weslock, Hooply, to name a few.
Many contractors and retailers will offer a variety of color options to fit the unique tastes of clients. Simply ask your chosen contractor if your desired door hardware color finish is available.
