Locks, chains and keysafes

This section includes equipment to lock and secure doors.

Touch bar and touch pad release locks open a door in a modified way, for example by reversing a wheelchair against a touch bar. Once open, the door automatically re-locks when shut. For security reasons, the locks are more suited to internal doors. If used on an external door, the device can be positioned on the interior, however, a key locking system would have to be used on the external side.

Coded, programmable and automatic locks are operated by remote control. These may be suitable substitutes for traditional locks for people who have reduced power or dexterity for key operation. 

Bolts, locks and catches are available for exterior and interior doors, toilets and windows. Some locks have an emergency release mechanism. For bathroom and toilet locks it is useful to have an external sign indicating when the room is occupied.

Key safes are secure metal boxes which can be secured next to the door. A single copy of the key/s are placed inside but can only be retrieved by someone who knows the correct code to open the box. It is up to the person who they give the code to and they can change the code as often as they like. Units can be wall-mounted, have a locking shackle or be or attached to the top of a door and kept in place by closing the door.

Safety chains which offer an alternative to conventional safety chains are also included.
