Advantages of electronic locks over traditional keys
- No more lost keys
- Allows remote access control of an area
- Very durable, with fewer moving parts
Handing out physical keys inevitably leads to them not being returned, lost and means you no longer know who has access to your building. When access cards are misplaced, they can be disabled, completely eliminating this threat
Electronic locks can be connected to a central access control system, allowing you to enforce specific access areas for various personnel, and use the same key throughout a site, rather than carrying a keychain with you at all times.
Maglocks, for example, have zero moving parts, no barrels, pins or tumblers. This means they will not wear out over time as its mechanical counterpart might.
Electronic locks can be set up to automatically release in the event of an evacuation or fire and can have any number of programmable triggers integrated to cope with specific emergencies.

There is a wide range of options for securing doors throughout your facility, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
Magnetic (Mag) locks are also a fantastic tool in site security, providing a fully automated yet discreet solution to controlling access in an area.
Maglocks use an electromagnetic field to hold a door closed and therefore have no moving parts, require very little maintenance, and operate very well in a variety of applications. Our range of products can provide up to 1200kg of holding force to a door, with very low power consumption. These products contain sensors which integrate fully with any access control or security system.

New Zealand has been a front runner in the design of many electronic locks, now used internationally.
Doors are usually more secure if the lock can be installed in the centre edge of the door. The Lockwood mortice, manufactured in Melbourne, is a friendly lock that always allows free egress in the event of fire. The Cobalt is a more recent product and there is now an electronic lock for every situation.
Electric strikes replace the traditional strike faceplate in a door, and can often be used to add electronic control to a traditional door with a mechanical lock in place.
This means a door can both be opened electronically, or with a mechanical key. An electric strike interfaces with the deadlatch on the door, and can simply rotate away from the doorframe to allow the latch to pass through. These locks are fast, and allow a door to be pushed open in milliseconds.
Common in applications where an emergency door release is required, these are a great retrofit solution for any area.
- Very durable
- Few moving components
- Can be installed with fail-safes built in
