The advantages of Key Code Locks

Key code locks are an electronic locking system that removes the need for keys. Lost keys are a large problem for the healthcare industry as are the volume of keys that need to be carried around on a daily basis.

Whilst there are other electronic locking systems that help alleviate this problem, these systems are expensive to implement on a small scale.

Using a key code lock removes the need for keys, reducing the number of keys carried by a nurse on a daily basis.

Key code locks are especially beneficial on medicine and MDS trolleys. By installing a key code lock on a trolley, there is less of a likelihood that a key will be broken during the rigors of a daily medicine round.


Key code locks are also becoming popular in hospitals on POD lockers. The initial cost of the lock over a standard keyed cam lock is quickly retrieved when the cost of a replacement key is considered.


The Key code lock that Pharmacy Medical use is a very popular one within the healthcare industry. Our Key code lock is constructed from a hygiene control friendly zinc alloy frame, with dual epoxy coated buttons for ease of cleaning. Using two batteries to power them, they have a life of over 15000 operations before the batteries should need changing. And when they do a simple battery booster can be specified to open a cabinet should the batteries fail whilst the cabinet is locked. The locks can also be rated to IP55 when specified.
