The most commonly used lock in storage lockers are cam locks, as they are the most simplest of locks to install and use. The lock works on a small metal plate manoeuvred by the key, which moves at a 90 degree angle to safely and securely fasten the lock and the locker door. It is the standard lock used in lockers, commonly seen in gym and swimming pool changing rooms or workplace storage for employees. Several different makes of Cam locks are available from us.
We cut keys to order for a variety of uses, from office furniture locking systems to lockers/cabinets. We manufacture locker keys to the customers’ specifications for a locking system designed specifically for your needs and locker keys can cost as little as £1.70 each. We also offer a variety of locker locks, from the standard Cam lock to hasp and staplelocks, which is a lock more ideal for lockers/cabinets that may be facing the elements as they are strongly corrosion resistant.
Keys by manufacturers like Lowe and Fletcher, Eurolocks and Helmsman Lockers are all available from us, putting quality and durability first for your locker key.
For a key and lock system that’s a little more robust and sturdy there is the High Security Cylinder Lock, manufactured by ISEO, which is one of the much more high quality standard locks that can be used in lockers and cabinets but also for heavier tasks like locking doors. If a higher standard of security, which will depend on what exactly you are storing, is what you are after then the High Security Cylinder Lock may be the best option though much pricier if needed for multiple lockers.
If keys are something you are trying to avoid then there is always the option of combination locks, which also operate with a Cam lock, and are made by a variety of manufacturers. A more modestly priced option is to go with a standard Cam lock and key though.
Locker keys are easily replaced by the manufacturer if you have, by any chance, misplaced a key or perhaps broken it. There is also the easy option of replacing the whole lock.
Of course, it is advisable to have a back up set of keys and you can get your locker keys cut simply, with little hassle, so you will have a second set, or multiple sets, of keys ready if you lose one or if there is an emergency.
