Mechanical access controls are a simple, yet effective way to manage the flow of people into a room or building. Designed for interior and exterior use, these devices offer greater flexibility than locks and keys alone. They consist of a numerical (or alphanumerical) keypad connected to an integral locking mechanism. We have been installing mechanical access controls across North London and Hertfordshire for over forty years. In that time, we have seen them soar in popularity, and with good reason.

Mechanical access controls
As with all security devices, there are a range of mechanical access controls on the market. Our experienced locksmiths will sit down with you and discuss the various options available. With our decades of combined experience in the field, we are sure to find a model that suits your particular needs.
A range of applications
Mechanical access controls are popular in office buildings. They are a handy way to restrict access to certain areas such as training rooms, conference rooms, and server banks. They are also useful in shared offices, where different small enterprises work on the same floor. Increasingly, they are being used in residential buildings for the security of individual residents.
A practical security solution
If the main door to your building needs to be locked to prevent unwanted entry, mechanical access controls are ideal. With its unique code, you can guarantee that only the people you want in the building can gain access. It is more effective than a standard lock, as there are no keys to potentially get lost or stolen.
If an employee leaves your company knowing the mechanical access control codes, you may consider this a security risk. Fortunately, all our models can be easily recalibrated with a new code. You don’t even need our assistance to do so. Most models just require a certain sequence of keys to reset, which we provide you with after installation.
Code and key combinations
Some mechanical access controls use only the keypad for locking the door. Others incorporate a physical key as well for added security. In these models, the physical key always overrides the door combination. This is a useful security feature as it prevents individuals accidentally locking themselves in or out of a room.
