Functions of electronic locks:

Lowe & Fletcher’s range of electronic locks can be used for a variety of industrial applications across a number of sectors including:

  • Lockers – businesses such as gyms, hotels, hospitals and offices offer lock-up or locker facilities for guests and staff to keep belongings safe when unattended. Physical keys can go missing, so electronic locks are a great means of ensuring that belongings can be retrieved without costly repairs or replacements to the locker itself.

  • Furniture – electronic locks are often used in office ‘hot desking’ environments or personal or temporary storage for employees’ belongings. Items such as wooden office furniture, filing cabinets and metal office furniture should be equipped with a secure locking system where privacy or security is necessary. 

  • Cash management – security in the cash management industry is crucial. As technology advances, so do criminals. Lowe & Fletcher supplies a wide range of locking systems to offer the highest level of security for back-office and retail applications. 

  • Postal – locking systems, such as Lowe & Fletcher’s electronic latch lock solution offer extra protection for parcel or mailboxes, storage, or asset management containers.
