Responsibility Split Selecting Locks - Statistics

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jul 22, 2019

A heated access debate surrounds who should pick and install the locks. While responsible for selecting the control systems, integrators often struggle getting locks to work when others supply them.

So we asked integrators 'What percentage of your new access control doors have you been in charge of selecting lock hardware?' 150+ integrators told us how often they select access control locks, and explained the market factors driving the responsibility.

Inside this report, we examine the trends and the key reasons integrators select locks, in which situations they do not, and which trade is a common partner in doing the work.
