Convenience for everyone
Unlike clunky padlocks where caretakers and teachers have to manage and store keys, mechanical, electronic and smart locks provide convenient access control without compromising on security. Headteachers can feel reassured that pupils remain safe whilst on site and that school property is not at risk of damage or theft.
For swimming pools, workshops and equipment storage that pose a threat to students’ wellbeing, it is fundamental that caretakers and teachers have the ability to restrict the access of these areas when not in use to prevent accidents.
To stop expensive equipment and hazardous chemicals ending up in the wrong hands, education institutions can install coded locks. Authorised staff can simply generate a code for approved visitors and cleaners, providing controlled access to staff rooms, sports courts and equipment cupboards that will automatically expire after a set time.
In safe hands
In the world of education, the need to provide a safe, secure environment for students and staff is now a given. Installing affordable, robust access control provides staff with the control they need to restrict who enters a building and when. To help restrict movement of authorised visitors and protect property, Codelocks audit trail function allows caretakers to see when a door has been opened.
Providing more accuracy than a visitor sign-in book, unique codes provide users with access on certain days and specific times, offering staff complete control and reassurance. For nurseries who need to operate smooth drop-off and collection times, keyless access provides parents with instant entry and peace of mind, and causes less disruption for staff having to run back and forth to let visitors in.
