From Gold Medal Olympians to Schlage Grade 1 Deadbolts, we are constantly reminded there is a certain beauty that can be found in strength. The hours olympians spend training, the sacrifices they make each day to perfect their talent and the strong mental attitude they cultivate is what makes them both successful and beautiful. The same rigorous concepts and high standards apply to creating and perfecting the Schlage Grade 1 deadbolt,Decorative Collections and Electronic Keypad Locks.

 

We went straight to the source to get the inside scoop on how Schlage products are tested, developed and perfected. Bill Dorner, Manager of Global Reliability & Compliance Testing, is as passionate about the Olympics as he is about Schlage product quality and he had some excellent insights on how the testing of our premium home security products compares to the training of Olympians.

 

Like weightlifters, Schlage locks demonstrate Strength. Our products are subjected to pushing forces, pulling forces, and twisting torques not only during development, but also during regular BHMA certification tests, and even Ongoing Reliability Tests (ORT) in the factory. This way Schlage assures that its products maintain peak performance, just like a highly trained athlete.

Like marathon runners, Schlage locks demonstrate EnduranceResidential locks are designed to exceed 400,000 cycles for Grade 2 or 200,000 cycles for Grade 3.Residential deadbolts can exceed 100,000 cycles for Grade 3 all the way up to 250,000 cycles and beyond for Grade 1. By designing and monitoring our products for cycle endurance, Schlage assures customer satisfaction for the long haul.
Like all Olympic athletes, Schlage locks must perform regardless of Adverse Conditions. Product finishes are proven to resist exposure to corrosive salt fog, sunlight, condensation, abrasion, and even harsh chemicals. Schlage‚Äôs electronic products are tested under extreme environmental conditions, and, like an Olympian, they persevere and perform.
While Schlage has been 'training' for over 90 years, we continue to look for ways we can improve our design, function and service. And we'd love your feedback! To share your story or give your feedback! Comment below!
