Back to Case Studies

The UQ Oral Health Centre (OHC) is an award-winning facility and the largest in size and scope in Australasia, designed to deliver high-quality patient treatment, dental education and research.


UQ OHC Department engaged John Barnes Locksmiths for a complete supply and specific installation of high-end locks, aluminium hardware and architectural door accessories in the Oral Health Alliance (OHA) technical dental laboratory.


Upon consultation and discussion with the builder Inglass; we supplied and installed bespoke security locks, door and associated aluminium hardware accessories, including:

  • Lockwood Mortice Locks in special finish PC
  • Black perimeter and automatic bottom seals
  • Special finish black closers 

Due to the custom specifications and tight deadlines, we arranged a direct airfreight delivery for some of the hardware requested, directly from Lockwood.

An alternative was initially supplied as some of the requested hardware needed more time to be completed. John Barnes and Lockwood organised a follow-up site visit 2 weeks after to fit the custom hardware.


Representatives from UQ OHC was left impressed with our assistance and efficient delivery in obtaining bespoke security accessories, within the tight project period and also the transparency of the overall process.
