1st Access Locksmiths

1st Access Locksmiths opened it’s retail premise in 1992 aiming to provide Nottinghamshire with a professional and reliable, family run business. We quickly became established and well known for our trustworthy, dependable service, always completing work to the very highest standard. Our customer base quickly grew, but to this day we still maintain many relationships that were forged with our customers in those early days. We very proudly became Nottingham’s first locksmiths to be approved by Trading Standards.

The shop was originally set up as a base for our call out engineers to work from, keeping adequate stock to complete many varying tasks. It quickly became the centre of the business with a large customer base including: local Police Authorities, NHS Trusts, Local Councils, Universities, Colleges, Housing associations, Victim Support, Schools, Citizens Advice Bureau and many more.

Our shop offers our customers access to a large number of stocked security products and many years of experience and advice to call upon.

We carry a large range of locks from top manufacturers including Chubb, Yale, Union, Mul-T-Lock, Federal, Adams Rite, Ingersoll…

As a long standing Nottingham Locksmiths, we supply much more than just locks and keys. We regularly supply: access control equipment, door closers, master-key systems, handles, UPVC mechanisms, over 60 different types of padlocks, chains, safes, key presses, high security locks with restricted key duplication, key safes, vehicle transponder keys, aluminium door locks and much more…

Our engineers carry a large range of stock in their vehicles, from which we cover all of Nottingham. Should you desire a locksmith to attend in an unmarked vehicle for your discretion, this would be no problem.  We always aim to stick to our quotes and if for any reason we find difficulty in doing so it will be discussed prior to work being done. Working with the backup of the retail shop premises means that in almost all cases we have the required lock/parts to complete the job the same day.
