Codelock Installation

LOCK-TEC were asked to provide a secure locking solution for a well used door at a local transport maintenance garage. The following pictures illustrate a slide show of the installation from start to finish. Our 2000 series Codelock offered just the right level of security and convenience for the customer.

Step 1 - The door as we found it. Well used, failing existing locking and in need of a secure solution to allow workers to enter the building using coded access.

Step 2 - LOCK-TEC carry a wide range of digital locks and the 2000 series Codelock is ideal for the application. The door is marked up for drilling using the template supplied with the lock.

Step 3 - Once the door is marked up, it can then be drilled in line with the template. Care is taken over this part of the installation as the vast majority of problems that people could potentially experience with a digital lock are mainly due to mis-alignment of fixing holes at the installation stage.

Step 4 - Holes are drilled through the door and also on the door leading edge so that the latch of the digital lock can be fitted in place.

Step 5 - The latch has a faceplate and the edge of the door is chiseled so that the faceplate can lie flush with the door edge. If the faceplate was left protruding then the plate would catch against the door frame and score the frame.

Step 6 - The latch is fitted into place. The latch is the first part of the lock to be fitted as the lock has a spindle that passes through the latch to operate it.

Step 7 - The Codelock can now be fixed to the door, at this point the lock is put into place and a cable is passed through a drilled hole in the door which connects to an internal battery pack that will power the lock. The spindle is also passed through the latch.

Step 8 - The internal backplate is fixed into place. The plate houses the battery pack and also contains the internal knob activator for exiting the door. The Codelock has "bolt through" fixings which allows the external keypad to be fixed from the rear, this enhances the security of the lock as no fixings are shown on the external side of the door.

Step 9 - The battery pack is installed and connected to the cable passing through the door. The pack will allow for many thousands of operations of this lock before they need to be replaced.

Step 10- Finally, the door frame is prepared with a strike plate where the latch will locate once the door is closed. The strike plate ensures that the door closes smoothly and it also protects the wooden frame from damage.

Step 10 - The lock is now installed and ready for operation. This digital lock is electronically operated and can have 90 different access codes programmed into it. All programming is done via a master code at the keypad and the unit also has a key override function to allow emergency access through the door or to set the lock into a free passage mode where no codes are required to pass through the door.

Step 12 - The lock looks good both on the outside and the inside. The installation time was under an hour and the client is more than satisfied with the solution. LOCK-TEC always ensures that the right solution is offered and we only ever install our locks to the highest standards.
