The most obvious benefit of a keyless lock is that there’s no need for a key to enter or exit. As long as you know the code and enter it correctly on the digital keypad, then your lock will function. It’s great if there are several people who might need a key to gain access as you won’t need to worry about lost keys, or them falling into nefarious hands.
However, sometimes you might need to override the locking mechanism on the lock, so a key override function can be a good safety net to have.
One of the main reasons a key can be useful is when there are multiple locks to control. Using Keyed Alike cylinders, a single keyholder can access all the doors with the same key without needing to know individual lock codes.
At Borg Locks we understand the importance of a key override for your lock, and that’s why offer a key override on 21 of our best-selling locks, including locks from the very popular 1000, 2000, 3000 and 5000 ranges.
That means you can choose a keyless lock with a key override function to suit a wide range of requirements:
Depending on the digital lock you choose from Borg Locks, there are two locations for the key cylinder.
We have some locks with the key cylinder built into the handle of the lock which allows both key deadlocking and key override functions if required.
Or, on our metal gate locks, the key cylinder is built into the locking assembly as the lock features a knob turn keypad and anti-climb housing.
The key override function is available on a range of handles too, including straight handles, knob handles and knob turns.
Some of the locks featuring a key override function also have a free passage mode, enabling a bypass option to deactivate the coding chamber. Until the bypass is deactivated, you will be able to move through the door or gate without the need to constantly enter the keypad code.
All Borg Lock products are now available in Easicode Pro (ECP) format making on door quick code changes easy and coding error free. Many end user applications require code changes to be made on a regular basis and our ECP function makes for a simple coding solution.
Our experienced teams at Borg Locks are here to help you choose the most suitable lock for your needs and situation and are available to chat on the phone or video Monday to Friday.
