Custodial Locks

The custodial locks and security systems market is opening up rapidly, driven by dynamic factors that are revolutionising standards, quality and performance. Pickersgill-Kaye has responded to this with a range of custodial locks whose quality, construction and performance exceed the criteria provided by the Building Design Guide.

Our lock development programme, such as for the 8-lever Kaye Class 1 Custodial Cell Lock for police and prison services, has led to the creation of new standards and an international respect that proves the lock’s safe and reliable performance, physical security and durability.

Our locks are proven to 300,000 handle operations and door slams and 100,000 key operations, whilst being resistant to a 12-hour saw attack, as well as resisting both side and end loads on the deadbolt of 25kN.
