The challenge to protect building sites is one we take
very seriously.

Our specialist primary security solutions for construction sites include an extensive range of Stronghold® padlocks and cylinder locks.

All of our standard range of cylinders come with high security patented anti-bump and anti-snap features to protect against physical attack.

Our master keyed locks are state-of-the-art - one authorised key holder has the 'master key' to a series of locks. These locks have individual keys as well as one key that opens all.

Construction sites are busy places, vulnerable to theft. Our uniquely designed construction key is the ideal way to keep the integrity of your Squire Stronghold® security cylinder master key system.

For building refurbishments where new cylinders need fitting, there's no need to hand out your master key, simply give out the construction key instead.

And when the job's complete, simply insert your master key into every cylinder and turn to deny access to the
construction key.

being locked out of the classroom by pupils
The specific security needs of schools and universities are many and varied - from protecting lockers to controlling access to buildings.

Our masterkeying services and colour-coded padlocks are ideal for managing locker systems. And there's our extensive range of heavy duty perimeter protection measures with padlocks and chains for gates and outbuildings.

We can guarantee you have enough key variants for all your lockers - our padlocks have thousands of key differs.

Colour-coded padlocks are ideal where quick and easy identification is important. Individual areas can be assigned their own colour - year one lockers can be red, year two can be blue and so on.

Our keyed alike service minimises the amount of keys that managers and caretakers must control - why have numerous keys when one key fits all.

Significantly, we've pioneered a special classroom door cylinder, preventing teachers from being locked out of a classroom and allowing emergency access in critical situations.

Never before have utilities companies been faced with such complex security challenges with employees, contractors and third parties all needing managed access to facilities.

The nature of remote sites makes tight access control, the safety of personnel and the efficient response to deliberate break-in a management priority.

Controlling remote access is a major problem for all businesses large and small.

Issues include:
  • Hundreds of unmanaged keys which may have been lost or stolen
  • Difficulty controlling secure and time restricted access by outside contractors
  • Unauthorised people accessing sensitive or potentially dangerous areas, without detection
  • Risk of theft from property without a record of entry.
With hundreds of locks and keys, the logistics of managing conventional security is complicated, costly and time consuming.

Inevitably keys get lost, there's no ability to time restrict access and no audit trails of activity.

Self Storage

Padlocks for self storage use, branded with your company's logo and colours
A variety of market-leading padlocks for storage and self storage are available from Squire.

In an industry where 'key differs' are of paramount importance - so the same key cannot be used to open different locks - Squire has pioneered a preventative solution so your customers can ensure their items are safe.

Our Stronglock range is ideal for self storage customers requiring medium level security, whilst our higher security Stronghold® range offers maximum security protection.

Padlocks can even be branded in company colours and logo.

For businesses large or small, the health and safety of staff and visitors is critical.

Squire not only helps ensure your property is protected, but importantly that your people are safeguarded with our range of protective security measures.

The Squire 'lock off' locks down potentially dangerous equipment and its function can be enhanced by the use of colour-coded locks.

Master keyed systems are ideal for those seeking padlocks to protect areas with a health and safety significance.
