Product: Sigma Plus, Master Key System | Location: Altrincham, Cheshire
Loreto Grammar is an all-girls community school located in Altrincham, England, which is comprised of over 1050 students and 100 staff. The school provides a rich, dynamic curriculum carefully planned and consistently reviewed to meet the needs of the girls at every Key Stage. A member of the Loreto group; they are part of a worldwide network of over 120 schools and 70,000 students and have strong links with many of their sister schools abroad including India, Australia, Germany and Spain.
The school which celebrated its centenary in 2010 occupies a historic site that was previously unsecure due to an outdated locking system, this led to staff having different keys for each area, making ease of access poor and security low. Loreto reached out to local locksmith, the Bolton Lock Company Ltd who surveyed the site for a new Masterkey suite in early 2020.
Bolton Lock based in West Houghton, are a well-established Master Locksmith who have been providing specialist safe and lock services as well as key cutting to both domestic and commercial clients for over 30 years and are one of the North West’s most trusted providers of Security and Architectural products.
They were tasked with sourcing and fitting a system which could meet the security needs of the client whilst standing up to the strain of a busy school environment. They chose global leader in the design and manufacture of high-security, mechanical locks DOM-UK to supply a Sigma Plus Masterkey suite, due to the protected key system and the competitive pricing model which was available. The school were also happy with the key cutting service that the Bolton Lock Company Ltd could offer as a DOM Keystone partner they can supply cut keys the very next day.
