Why you should use John Barnes for your locksmithing needs in 2023

As the new year approaches, it’s time to consider why you should choose John Barnes over any other locksmith in 2023. Below are some of our 2022 successes that prove John Barnes is the best locksmith in Brisbane.

Our People

group of apprentices and their trainerThis year saw us put on 3 new apprentices which brings us to have our largest cohort ever (6 full time and 1 school based). Our organisational changes have enabled us to provide these young men with more guidance and support as they pursue careers. We’re excited to see what next year brings as they continue to learn and grow. With interests ranging from safes to access control, they are quickly becoming leaders in their chosen field of locksmithing.

Our Price

Inflation has been a word no one wants to hear this year, us included! To help relieve the strain on your wallet, we constantly price check the market to ensure we remain competitive and affordable for all of our customers. From key cutting to service calls, we always have a secure solution for any budget thanks to our large purchasing power and willingness to buy in bulk.

Our Restricted Key Systems

If you want to upgrade your key system, look no further than John Barnes! If there is a restricted keying system on the market that is worth selling, we are a dealer. This year saw us acquire a dealer code for the newly released EVVA 4KS SCEC endorsed system. This profile is now one of the longest patents available for SCEC certified master key systems up to Zone 3 security requirements. This makes it a comparable alternative to the commonly known gold standard high security applications of Bi-Lock and Protec. With over ten keying profiles still under patent, you can be confident that John Barnes has a restricted keying system to meet your security requirements and budget.
