A little bit of history...

Locksafe Hardware commenced in 1994 in South Croydon and from the very beginning has been the supplier of locks, keys, security products and hardware to local government, hospitals and construction. The family-owned business grew steadily, and moved in 2005 to our present freehold site of 0.6 acres in Purley, near South Croydon in Surrey.

We quickly established an enviable reputation in the area for first-class service and a friendly approach and this traditional and personal touch is valued at Locksafe Hardware. We quickly became well-known for solving problems and providing solutions as well as offering friendly advice.
In 2011 we moved into a new building on the same site. It is double the size of the previous premises, so we could improve our services to you even further, by providing ample customer parking and a wide selection of goods.
