Manufacturing, commercial and warehousing developments require industrial strength locks and security systems. The locks on fittings like dock doors and perimeter gates quite simply need to be far stronger than the locks one would fit to an office door or a door in your home. Our technicians are highly skilled and trained in fitting, repairing and servicing all commercial and industrial grade locks and systems.


Part of commissioning a complex, be it industrial, commercial or residential, new locks have to be fitted to each and every door. While the operation usually goes smoothly, there are times when a lock refuses to fit into the cavity created for it, or a strike plate will need to be positioned so the door latch and lock bolt function smoothly. It is also vital that the locks are fitted so that they cannot be tampered with. Our technicians have the skills and tools to undertake industrial and commercial scale installations quickly and perfectly. During the installation, we verify that locks of the correct security level are fitted to the exterior and interior doors. We also take great care to ensure doors with multi-point locking systems are working perfectly. High security areas are carefully checked. Biometric or IT controlled access systems are tested under all conditions to ensure that they are fully functional and will not pose a danger to the occupants of the building. Fire escape doors are checked and signed off with particular attention to detail as are all special function and safety installations.


Sometimes, it can be necessary to replace all the locks in a building. Sets of keys may be lost or, with changes in staff and building occupants, keys go missing or are not returned. When this happens, the security of the building is compromised and the only way to remedy the situation is to change all the locks in the entire building. In the case of a set of keys being lost or stolen, there are bound to be exterior and interior doors in the locked position. These doors need to be opened before the locking unit can be removed and replaced. Our technicians are skilled at all locksmith operations. They are equipped with non-destructive tools and are able to open locked doors without causing damage to the surrounding frames, doors or walls.


Landlords, property administrators and caretakers have a lot to do on a daily basis. Paying attention to every little detail of all the buildings they control is sometimes impossible. United Kingdom Locksmith Services provides a comprehensive maintenance and service contract which takes over the responsibility for the care and maintenance of all the security systems. Under the maintenance and service contract, we carry out regular inspections of the locks and other security systems and report back to the client. If anything needs to be replaced or repaired, it will be discussed and quoted for before work is carried out.
