More on Flat Steel Keys

We have keys for every type of lock. One of the most common types of these are flat steel keys. Read on to find out more about flat steel keys and the types of lock they are commonly used with.

Where are flat steel keys used?

Flat steel keys are predominantly used in cupboard and drawer units, and are commonly used in wooden lockers.

What type of locking mechanism to flat steel keys use?

The locking mechanism for locks which use a flat steel key is normally a dead lock. These are one of the safest types of lock around.

About dead locks

Also known as dead bolts, dead locks are a locking mechanism which is different from the common spring bolt lock in that a deadbolt can't be moved to an open position without rotating the lock cylinder. The spring bolt lock is held in place with a spring, which is released by force exerted on the bolt as the key is turned. The advantage of a deadbolt lock is that it is highly resistance to entry without the correct key.

Types of dead bolt

Dead bolts can have either one or two cylinders. Those with a single cylinder require both a turn of the key and the twist of a knob on the other side in order to operate the lock. Double cylinder locks on the other hand do not need a knob to operate. Having a double cylinder lock is arguably more secure than a single cylinder, as it prevents the possibility of forced access via the knob, which is usually on the inside of the door. However, in some cases, this can prove to be a hazard. In the event of a house fire for example, this type of lock may prevent a quick exit from a building.

In some cases, a single cylinder lock can be made more secure with the addition of a lockable knob.

Variations of dead locks

There are several variations on the standard deadbolt lock which are even more secure. These include a vertical deadbolt which resists 'jimmying', where an intruder may use a bar to pry the bolt out of the door.

We stock all of the major brands of flat steel keys, including Yale, Union and Lowe Fletcher.
