How to choose the material of the hotel lock when buying?

2020-11-18 17:29:07

People buy hotel locks they are always used to looking at the appearance, but rarely care about the type of material of the lock panel. This aspect is often ignored. The quality of the material, in fact, is directly related to the period of validity of the hotel lock. If you notice the difference, you will know good or bad after a long time. Below, I will explain the characteristics of several commonly used hotel lock panel materials!

The commonly used hotel lock materials include stainless steel, zinc alloy, surface acrylic, aluminum alloy and other materials, of which the first two are mainly!

1. Zinc alloy hotel electronic locks:
This material is relatively soft compared to stainless steel hotel locks and is easy to forge and machine. The fancy can be freely designed and the manufacturing difficulty is small, so the high-end, luxurious and elegant hotel door lock shapes you see are forged with zinc. However, the zinc alloy material is less rust resistant than stainless steel and is easy to be damaged by external acute impact and external forces. Therefore, the hotel lock panel of all zinc alloy materials should be surface treated after casting to avoid all the above defects. But to cut costs, some manufacturers miss the last step, and after long-term use various hardware problems will emerge. Therefore, when choosing hotel locks, you should find regular manufacturers!

2. Stainless steel hotel door locks
The stainless steel hotel lock panel can be said to be relatively sturdy and we should all understand its benefits. The anti-corrosion performance is affirmative and the benefit in resisting violence is evident. Especially in the current hotel door locks, the focus on anti-theft, drilling, fire and saw and other aspects of performance is outstanding.
These are the advantages of stainless steel that make it the most challenging product to make. It is not easy to shape the appearance. It has little freedom in the design space. In general, the locks you see in the hotel lock market have a simple presentation. There are a few tricks, which is a little nasty, but it's sturdy. For those who love the low profile, you can still consider the purchase of stainless steel.
However, there are many small workshops on the market that often use stainless steel materials to win price competition. Instead of the real 304 stainless steel, right now, if the user blindly pursues a low price without knowing it, then he can let his luck.

3. Aluminum Alloy Hotel Card Lock:
This is not recommended for everyone to buy, because the texture is too soft and the strength is low, and in practice it can be said to be stronger than plastic. When I say this, everyone should understand it. We also mentioned the acrylic surface before. In fact, it's just a kind of decoration. The back is also made of metal materials, generally there are many zinc alloy materials. Not the whole hotel lock is made of acrylic material.

These are the issues we need to pay attention to when choosing the surface panel material when buying hotel locks. We can choose the right locks according to our needs. Of course, in the hotel lock sales market, stainless steel hotel locks still make up the majority because they are durable. Grade, anti-rust ability can still be trusted, and the shape is beautiful, deeply loved by users.
