Safelock Systems Ltd is a distributor of locks for safes, specialising in EN1300 certified key, mechanical combination and electronic safe locks. Products from leading manufacturers such as LA GARD, Tecnosicurezza, dormakaba, Wittkopp and Stuv are held in regular stock.
The company’s expertise lies in understanding customer needs, having the technical knowledge and experience to supply the most suitable lock system for the application. Locks are programmed ready to work out of the box, according to client specifications, without additional charge. Aftersales care and supporting customers with technical queries are fundamental to the company’s ethos, along with ensuring that products in regular stock are supplied quickly and efficiently.
Safelock Systems was incorporated in 1985 by Jim and Linda Brown after Jim gained experience in the industry working for Sargent & Greenleaf. Jim worked in partnership with LA GARD founder Nick Gartner, to begin distributing the LA GARD range of mechanical combination and key locks, and with his personable, genuine and passionate approach, began successfully marketing to the UK and Ireland.
As the industry evolved and electronic lock systems were developed by LA GARD, Safelock Systems Ltd continued to expand, with its focus on the programming and supply of electronic locks – still recognisable on safes, vaults, cabinets and ATMs across the world. Around the turn of the century, manufacturers began developing more complex electronic lock systems to meet increasing technological and security needs. LA GARD’s partnership with Tecnosicurezza allowed the business to grow further.
With the passing of Jim early in 2012, and the retirement of Tom as the General Manager, Jim’s son Tony, and daughter Jasmine, joined the company. They immediately saw the potential working with the already successful team, and with a change to the international distribution of LA GARD, had the opportunity to expand the company’s portfolio of manufacturers, to include Tecnosicurezza, dormakaba and Wittkopp.
2020 brings further investment in a new website and online knowledgebase to provide comprehensive information about all the safe locks supplied by Safelock Systems Ltd.
