Frequently asked questions

Selecting the right lock depends on several factors:

  • The security level required
  • The type of enclosure and the space available to fit it in
  • The environmental factors that could affect the lock, its material and lifespan (e.g. remote location, harsh weather conditions)
  • Whether it needs to meet a certain security standard (e.g. to pass accreditation)
  • The key configuration required for key management
  • Whether or not the lock needs to be reprogrammable.
