About The Project

Access Hardware provided the Southern Folger cell door locking equipment to all new cell doors. All these doors are electrically operated via touchscreens located in the guard’s office for each accommodation wings.

After the initial supply, Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) requested the ability to monitor the use of the mechanical override key. QCS required assurance that when a key had been used in the lock, this event be recorded on their system software. This level of accountability was not available with any detention lock manufacturers’ products.

Access Hardware, in conjunction with Thiess, Honeywell, QCS and Southern Folger (USA) developed a method for achieving this function which is now an option on the factory produced standard lock that is covered by the standard factory warranty. Access Hardware developed a method to retro fit all the existing products in the facility with the Key Override Monitor (KOM) function in a timely and cost effective manner. This included the entire R&D, manufacturing, testing and commission process with no impact on the project completion dates. This was an excellent outcome for QCS.
