Established by family in 1883, we have expertise in school security and were the first locksmiths to install keyless access control in the early 1990’s.
We offer an all-encompassing service including a full security survey covering the perimeter of the school grounds through to the head’s office. It is a bespoke service, and we cherry-pick the best products, using high security equipment where necessary and arranging dynamic lockdown and escape routes so that you can take care of pupils, staff and visitors. Fire doors and compartments are important but we also consider other needs for emergency escape.
Health and Safety is paramount. We can help you monitor and provide an audit trail to provide evidence of compliance with Regulations.
Our integrity is important to us and we advise against use of shortcuts or inferior products which offer little security and no fire rating.
We work nationally, advising, supplying, installing and maintaining security and ancillary systems such as video entry, intruder alarms and CCTV.
Our engineers are CSCS card holders and our Director Mark Boynton has IOSH certification. We are members of the Master Locksmiths association and have advanced DBS certification. We also hold BS 9001:2015.
Four education unions - NEU, NAHT, ASCL and Voice - have submitted a joint statement to the School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB), demanding a significant, above-inflation pay increase for all teachers and leaders.
