Hospital Metalcraft comments:

Legislation dictates that all ‘Health-Care Premises’ ensure that their Drugs and Medicines are stored in cabinets which comply with relevant standards or regulations. With this in mind dormakaba were called in by the technical design team at Hospital Metalcraft to discuss our cylinder locking options.

After a detailed consultation process in which sample cylinder’s from several of dormakaba cylinder platforms were tested and evaluated and dormakaba were successful in becoming supply partners to Hospital Metalcraft for cylinders supplied and fitted on their controlled drug cabinets.

Creating customised locking solutions for end users within the Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) industry has been a significant part of dormakaba’s (Kaba Ltd) business in the UK for over 35 years. With a product design, development and manufacturing facility still located in the UK, dormakaba is able to work with their clients to create tailor-made products based upon their specific needs, and considering the particular environment that the product is to be used within. dormakaba pride’s itself in its ability to work with its clients as a design partner, offering CAD design and development facilities for new and existing locking applications.
This is an excellent example of why dormakaba can look back over 150 years of history in lock and cylinder production, during which time it has become the world’s number-one producer of key blanks, key-cutting machines, transponder keys and high-security locks.
