From a standard Key lock, to a Combination lock, a Push-button lock, a Keypad, an RFID lock or even a Smart lock; there are so many different locking options available to choose from.
Who knew there were so many different locks available?
So, coming back to the original question, what is the best lock for a locker? The answer is actually, all of them, it just depends on what lock will best meet your business need.
Let’s look at some of the locks aforementioned and the benefits of each one to help you decide which is best for you:
Keys with cam locks are the most common mechanical lock being used, but is it the most effective? Key locks are simple and low-tech to use but lost keys can become an issue. Key locks work with a single master key and are suited to securing low-risk items within the workplace.
This lock opens by entering a sequence of numbers. The sequence may be entered using a single rotating dial which interacts with several discs or cams. Types range from inexpensive three-digit luggage locks to high-security safes. Unlike ordinary padlocks, combination locks do not use keys.
Push-button locks are a high-quality electronic combination slam-latch lock. Thanks to its simple operation, this lock is not only safe and functional, but stands out on account of its high-quality design, strong design and fireproof stainless- steel key. Its internal real time clock feature can automatically unlock at pre-set times and the versatile opening options ensure it caters to the needs of the business.
RFID Locks are operated by an RFID credential or by an ADA compliant User Key. Manager Keys provide management access and external power, whilst programming is accomplished via a Programming Key unique to the lock system. An optional mobile application tool that can be downloaded to smart phones simplify the lock management system and provides an audit trail for greater visibility of usage.
